Vegan gyros with pork-style baked jackfruit makes for a delicious lunch or a beach snack. Its flavours and textures will remind you of your Greek holidays.
For those unfamiliar with jackfruit:
Depends on where you’re sitting. If you’re in some parts of south and southeast Asia—India, Bangladesh, Thailand—it’s an everyday food. The starchy unripe fruit can be cooked in curries, while sweet, ripe jackfruit complements sticky rice and ice cream. You can get jackfruit chips, jackfruit noodles, jackfruit papad. Followers of American vegan-cooking blogs, on the other hand, will find unripe jackfruit compared, with confounding frequency, to “vegan pulled pork.” Seriously, it’s a thing.
