Use our recipe for Clean Eating Hoisin Sauce, or omit.
We used pre-shredded carrots for testing purposes.  2-3 large carrots, peeled and cut julienne should yield about 2 cups.

    1. Hey Carole! Jackfruit is becoming more and more available. Where I live they sell whole jackfruit at Safeway sometimes but it’s easier to get canned jackfruit like they have at Trader Joe’s. You can also get it on Amazon.

      1. Carole, I have found it at Sprouts, Natural Grocers, and Trader Joe’s. I think Whole Foods also has it. And amazon like Ryan said. This recipe calls for canned jackfruit, which I’ve only ever seen as young green jackfruit. This is what you want for recipes like this, because the unripe jackfruit will take on the other flavors of the dish. Whole ripe jackfruit, on the other hand, has its own flavor, so might not be suitable for every recipe.

  1. On my menu plan for next weekend. I’m going to substitute chicken for the jackfruit like another member did. I haven’t seen jackfruit in stores in my area.
