Jackfruit Curry

Ready in 30 minutes | Serves 4

Curry is a family favourite in our house, and here is a delicious way to use the super trendy jackfruit that you’ve probably seen popping up on vegetarian menus. Although, often used in Mexican cuisine, you really can use Ceres Organics Jackfruit as a meat sub for anything!
Pair with Ceres Organics quinoa for a perfectly balanced, protein-rich meal.
