I want to eat less meat, but how do I cook with plants?

We know it can seem daunting to try to figure out how to get extra plants on your plate and find delicious ways to substitute meat in your favorite dishes. But one of the easiest ways to cook with more plants is to put jack & annie’s to work for you! How about a tantalizing new way to “taco tuesday?” Sizzle up our savory vegan jack crumbles with however-spicy-you-like-it seasonings and you’re on your way to mouth-watering street tacos. Load ‘em up with fresh toppings like avocado, mango and jalapenos and a generous spritz of lime. Try our smoky vegan pulled pork in your enchilada recipe – no meat eater will be able to tell the difference. Our vegan meatballs let you plant-power your favorite pasta dishes. Their texture is every bit as meaty as mama’s and are ready for your grandma’s secret sauce. Chef’s kiss! You can even wake up to easy breakfasts that start with plants by adding jack vegan maple sausage links or breakfast sandwiches made with jack vegan sausage patties.     

And, while you’re at it, take crunchy, yummy nuggets off the kids’ menu and elevate them to some grown up, plant-based recipes. Pop them in the air fryer, then wrap in a tortilla with red sauce, basil and mozzarella or vegan cheese and, voila!, a fresh take on chicken parm.

While you’re finding new ways to bring plants to the table, here are some healthy facts about the big, beautiful jackfruit.* It’s the juiciest, meatiest, whole plant on the planet and it eats like your favorite meats.  

• Jackfruit is rich in vitamin C.   

• Jackfruit contains great amounts of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid. That’s important because B vitamins have almost endless importance in the body — from helping different enzymes do their jobs to releasing energy from carbohydrates to transporting oxygen around the body. 

• Jackfruit is a great source of potassium (move over, bananas!)
