Oh Nature’s Charm you have excelled yourselves
Can you tell these tacos are vegan? Nope? I thought not…
Jackfruit has become a regular visitor on the vegan scene for it’s meat like appearance and texture. It’s a versatile ingredient that can be flavoured in so many ways. I created a delicious teriyaki sauce to marinade the jackfruit in, and it turned out to be SO SO good.
Tacos are the perfect dish to cook for groups of people, as you can plate up each component, and let your guests create their own. They’re also great to prepare in advance and have on the go.
The flavours of the teriyaki jackfruit are divine, and you’ll shock your meat eating guests into wanting to try more vegan foods. Plus it takes only minutes to cook. Which means you can feed the hungry mob in no time.
Natures Charm have an amazing range of vegan products including their jackfruit, and I love their beliefs and the story behind the brand. Converting from an omnivorous diet, like the lady behind the brand, I found somethings difficult to replace. And I’ll be honest, there was stuff that I missed. But Nature’s Charm are doing their upmost to create all the deliciousness to ensure those following a vegan diet don’t feel like they’re missing out. Which is fab! Keep doing what you’re doing guys. I’m spreading the love loud and clear over here in the UK.
