Gluten-Free Breaded Jackfruit Nuggets

The last post in this jackfruit series is what I like to call jackfruit nuggets, they remind me of a breaded chicken nugget! It’s chewy and meaty on the inside with a nice crispy breading on the outside. Then dip it in your favorite sauce and it’s a perfect vegan meat substitute!

In this recipe I used the abundance of fruit pods I had leftover from the first two jackfruit recipes.

This is a really simple recipe, we are basically just breading the jackfruit’s fruit pods, baking them for 30-40 minutes and smothering and/or dipping into our favorite sauce. I will give you a great basic gluten free breading and a vegan binding solution.

If you haven’t already, check out the first post in this jackfruit series on everything you need to know about a jackfruit before buying and preparing one.
