Ingredients

  • 2 cans jackfruit in brine or water NOT IN SYRUP
  • 1/2 cup Karuna’s Whole Plant Tonic Mango and Goji Berry Beverage
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 cup liquid aminos
  • 4 teaspoons monk fruit sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 3- 4 tablespoons vegan butter

Instructions

  • Open your cans of jackfruit and drain off the excess liquid. Set aside.
  • Grab a small size bowl and begin to assemble your glazed sauce ingredients. Add Karuna’s Whole Plant Tonic Mango and Goji Berry Beverage, garlic powder, ginger powder, coconut aminos, monkfruit sugar, apple cider vinegar, and arrowroot powder and mix together well until fully combined. Taste mixture and adjust flavor to your liking. (NOTE: Keep in mind adding more monk fruit sugar will increase carbohydrates)
  • Next grab a large pan and heat up your vegan butter on medium high until it melts. Once butter has melted turn down heat and slowly add your glaze mixture. Stir constantly until sauces starts to thickens and bubbles. It will thicken fast within 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Once it starts to bubbles and thickens add your jackfruit. Cover evenly as possible with the sauce and allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes uncovered. In the last few minutes of cooking you may garnish with green onions and/or white/black sesame seeds. Remove from heat and serve with bok choy, cauliflower rice or your favorite vegetable. If you are not low carb you may serve with rice.

Notes

  • Has Net Carbs of 7 g
  • If you are not on a Vegan Keto Diet or you are looking to use this recipe in a weight gain regimen, serve with veggies AND your favorite carbohydrate.
  • May use coconut aminos instead of liquid aminos but keep in mind that will boost the carbs if you are on Vegan Keto.
  • May use organic cane sugar instead of Monkfruit and also corn startch instead of arrowroot flour but keep in mind that will boost the carbs if you are on Vegan Keto.
  • Xantham Gum WILL NOT work for the glaze sauce. It's too "gummy" and it created an horrible texture for the sauce when I tried it.
  • If you do not have access to Karuna Beverages you can subsitute with orange juice.
