They’re light, simple, versatile for toppings, and are super satisfying. It’s like a visit to your favorite cafe or restaurant to grab a bite to eat …. all from the coziness of your own home. This dish is made with mostly pantry staples and produce that you can always pick up fresh at Sprouts!
Sprouts Farmers Market has all your fresh and healthy plant-based goods to make awesome vegan meals at home. With tried and true healthy favorites like Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar used in this recipe, to new trending products, Sprouts always stocks up on them all.
Do you use apple cider vinegar at home? It’s considered an immune-boosting ingredient, yet it may not always be apparent how to incorporate it into your meals. These Sweet & Tangy Hoisin Jackfruit Wraps have apple cider vinegar as part of the sauce, and it adds such a lovely flavor!
Using Jackfruit in Your Cooking
Jackfruit is a large and prickly/spiky skinned fruit that makes a great vegan meat alternative for cooking! The “young” jackfruit that you will find canned in stores is the jackfruit prior to natural sweetening that occurs.
Therefore, it’s mild in flavor and actually has a texture and appearance that is similar to shredded chicken or pork once cooked or shredded. It is a great base to take on any flavors of sauces, like in this recipe.
When you buy it canned, simply drain away any liquid and gently pull the flesh apart with two forks (or your hands work as well!) and discard any small circular core-type pieces.
How This Dish Comes Together
Start by opening the cans of jackfruit and draining away the liquid. Have a mixing bowl ready and place the jackfruit into the bowl. Using forks, pull apart the jackfruit into “shred”. Discard the circular core bits.
Then saute the jackfruit in a small amount of oil to get a bit of texture / browning while you whisk up your sweet & tangy sauce. Then add the sauce to the pan and gently cook the jackfruit.
Meanwhile, this is the time to chop your veggies (to go into the wraps) and whisk up the ginger tahini sauce.
This recipe times out really well and can easily be assembled once your components are ready. I like to serve it with fresh chopped herbs like cilantro or parsley. So simple and delicious!
