Bloody Mary Marinated Jackfruit Sandwich

This Bloody Mary marinated jackfruit sandwich is the ultimate meat-free, plant based treat. It's easy to make the jackfruit ahead, plus it has a wonderfully meaty texture and is loaded with Bloody Mary flavors. Tangy, fresh, dilly, spicy, and salty. A true savory delight.

If you've never cooked with or tasted jackfruit before, it's a weird looking fruit that commonly grows in Africa, Asia, and South America. When you pull apart jackfruit, it takes on the texture of shredded meat. As a result, jackfruit has become a staple for vegans and vegetarians. You can now find it in the canned section at most grocery stores, just make sure you find the kind without sugar, as it is sometimes used for desserts. Canned jackfruit is unripe, so it doesn't have a distinct taste. It is the perfect meat substitute that you can dress up with any flavors you like.
