Jackfruit Tacos with Side salad

AAY Nutrition Trader Joe's Carrot Ginger Salad Dish

Jackfruit is a gigantic tropical fruit that makes a magical meat substitute.  TJ’s Jackfruit Cakes have a meaty texture like crab. They are crispy on the outside, fleshy on the inside and seasoned to perfection. We also love that they provide more than 20% of our daily fiber recommendation.

Give these cakes a try with our delicious & easy-to-prepare taco recipe!
