Cooked unripe (green) jackfruit has a stringy texture somewhat like pulled pork (or artichoke hearts). But with only 1 or 2 grams of protein per 3 oz., it’s more like a vegetable than a stand-in for meat. On the upside, it’s low in calories (about 30, before you do anything with it) and high in fiber (around 5 grams). My advice: start with unseasoned Trader Joe’s Green Jackfruit in Brine. Just rinse off the brine, shred, and sauté with your favorite sauce or seasonings.
