Trader Joe’s Releases Awesome New Vegan Frozen Meal, Jackfruit Curry!

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

As if we didn’t love Trader Joe’s enough, we just got some good news from our beloved grocer. They recently added a new, savory frozen, plant-based Jackfruit Yellow Curry dish to their repertoire. Who wouldn’t love a ready-to-eat jackfruit meal that can go from frozen to feast in just a matter of minutes? We’re excited to try it!

The new meal joins a number of other Trader Joe’s frozen food aisle favorites such as Vegan Tikka Masala, Penne Arrabbiata, and Panang Curry, as well as game-changing new additions such as the Hi Protein Veggie Burger made from pea protein. It comes with Jasmine rice and contains eggplant, red bell pepper, coconut milk, yellow curry, and spices.

Get Creative With Jackfruit At Home

Our bloggers have gotten truly inventive with jackfruit in the last few years, creating mouthwatering dishes from this unlikely fruit. It has a great meaty texture and a mild enough flavor that can absorb sauces and spices very well. Here are a few of our favorite recipes that incorporate succulent jackfruit into the mix from the Food Monster App.

If sandwiches are your thing…Pulled “Pork” is the way to go!

You’re going to want to taste test these Barbecue Pulled Jackfruit Sandwiches with Avocado Slaw dreamed up by Megan Sadd. Made with a spicy, sweet BBQ jackfruit and topped with a crunchy, tangy avocado slaw, these sandwiches are sure to please.

How about ‘crab’ cakes?

These Jackfruit ‘Crab’ Cakes With Tartar Sauce by Lindsay Clarke are light, elegant, and gluten-free. The shredded jackfruit nicely replicates the texture of crab, while spices round out the crab cake flavor you know and love. Plus, they’re topped with a delicious plant-based tartar sauce.

In the mood for Indian-style curry instead?

Preeti Tamilarasan’s Baby Jackfruit Curry is a plant-based take on this Indian classic. The jackfruit absorbs the ginger, garlic, garam masala, turmeric, and other spices and has a great meaty flavor. This rich, traditional curry is one you’ll want to make for yourself at home.

Thai Jackfruit curry is TERRIFIC.
As a vegetarian whose favorite cuisine is thai - I frequent Thai restaurants all over the country. Since many (most?) restaurants use fish oil and shrimp paste, even when the restaurant claims the entree is vegetarian, one gets skeptical.

This frozen dinner is better than most freshly prepared curries served in restaurants. Besides that, Jackfruit curry isn\'t something you\'d normally find in restaurants.
Way to go Trader Joe\'s!
p.s.
I try to limit my consumption of this dish to 2 to 3 meals per week only :-)

Looks great. But the one at my t.j. Has something full of saturated fat.
