After watching all 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the entire Twilight series, all 13 episodes of 13 Reasons Why, all the Bill Burr stand ups that Netflix has and finished watching The 100, I’m finally ready to do something with my life so I decided to write and blog about this recipe.
Mmmmmmmmmmm is all I can think to write when I think about pulled jackfruit.
Jackfruit is a type of fruit grown in tropical areas that grows to be ginormous. You can eat them when they are ripe and they taste just like juicy fruit gum. You can also eat jackfruit when it is unripe, which has a completely different taste, and that’s how you make this beautiful ‘pulled’ jackfruit. I call it pulled jackfruit because it has the same texture as pulled pork. In my honest opinion pulled jackfruit is WAY more juicer than pulled pork and it absorbs the flavours more. Not to mention jackfruit is so nutritious as it’s high in fibre, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, magnesium, it’s rich in antioxidants and contains protein.
I am not going to lie that cooking tofu scrambles has always intimidated me. I would occasionally order it at some vegan restaurants; some tasted bad. Until I went on a trip to New York and had the best breakfast I’ve ever had and yes it involved a tofu scramble. Since returning home I longed for that amazing tofu scramble so I tried to re-create it and if I do say so myself I did a damn good job. Now I can stop the cravings AND its healthy, delicious and so easy to make. That’s what I call a win-win.
This tofu scramble is full of delicious nutrient-rich veggies and protein packed, which makes it the ideal weekend breakfast for champions. Red peppers are high in antioxidants, vitamin C and boosts your metabolism, mushrooms are high in zinc, the kale adds fiber and the spices, especially turmeric, are anti-inflammatory for the body. Its also warm, filling and utterly delicious and the best part is that its so simple to make, yet packed with a ridiculous amount of flavour.
