IMG_8233.jpg

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can jackfruit in brine
  • 1 8oz container vegan cream cheese
  • 3/4 cups of buffalo sauce (I use Franks)
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons corn or tapioca starch
  • 1 plus 1/2 cups vegan cheddar shreds (like Follow Your Heart)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Drain jack fruit and chop the pieces, or shred them using you fingers into a medium sized bowl. The fruit pulls apart easily, and I find using my fingers easier than chopping.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, except 1/2 cup of cheese, to the bowl and mix well.
  3. Transfer mixture to a small baking dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until cheese on top is melty. 
  5. Serve with bread, crackers, carrots, or celery sticks.
