Jackfruit is an excellent substitute for meat texture and flavor. It’s not that common in the West but is making its way into markets. The ripe version is sweet but when it’s unripe, the flesh of the fruit is savory and often canned in brine or oil. It takes the place of tuna in a traditional Italian Pasta Al Tonno. Shredded and combined with tomatoes, capers, and garlic, it’s a great new way to make vegan pasta dinner.

Key Takeaways:

  • Pasta Al Tonno is usually made with Tuna, but you can actually use jackfruit as a substitute.
  • The jackfruit is made in a sauce and is mixed with Italian herbs, olives and sprinkled with basil.
  • Gluten-free pasta can be used with this recipe and with the jackfruit substitute this meal is available for anyone who is vegan or gluten-free.

“When shredded, the jackfruit imitates the flaky, tender texture of tuna and can easily be seasoned to taste like it too.”
