Vegetarian Jackfruit Enchiladas

In This Article

Active time: 25 minutes Total time: 1 hour

Shredded jackfruit serves as a delicious vegetarian filling similar to shredded carnitas in these enchiladas. The homemade enchilada sauce is a snap to make with pantry staples and is much lower in sodium than canned versions. Serve with a salad of kale, avocado and orange segments for a complete meal.

While jackfruit is a great plant-based meat alternative, it doesn’t offer the same protein content. To make this a high-protein meal, add black beans to the enchiladas or serve with a fried egg on top.
