The Jackfruit Experience – Cook with us

iuBBQ Jackfruit Cooking Lesson
Cooking with Amanda

WHERE: Cleveland Park Library.
WHEN: Thursday, Jan 15 at 6:30 pm

To register email info@aveganlife.org.

$10 donation to cover cost of food.

Amanda wants to show us how to take the world’s largest tree fruit and turn it into something we all love, Pulled BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches! We will be using fresh jackfruit, not the kind that comes in a can. Dissecting the jackfruit is a lot of fun and Amanda wants you to experience this exotic fruit in all it’s glory. After we dissect this beast of a fruit, she will show us how easy it is to make a fabulous BBQ sandwich and will provide additional recipes that utilize the whole fruit. Did you know that juicy fruit gum tastes nearly identical to jackfruit? That’s right, the actual fruits within the jackfruit can be eaten raw and will remind you of the beloved juicy fruit gum we used to love as kids.

Amanda’s passion is to show you how to cook food that is out of the ordinary and super healthy. She has been into Raw Vegan food for 5 years and makes healthy versions of her favorite childhood meals.

Amanda didn’t grow up on a healthy diet and suffered from many illnesses. Lucky for her she found a whole new world of raw vegan food and loves infusing different flavors from spices and herbs with different raw base ingredients such as nuts, seeds and veggies.
