George Foreman Indoor Outdoor Grill.  Check out my complete review of this grill here, and take a look at all of the recipes that I have been grilling and why it makes your grilling indoors or outdoors, so much easier.  This post contains affiliate links.

The key to this recipe is the grilled jackfruit.  I originally purchased a new grill because I don’t like heating the house up when I want oven roasted vegetables for my recipes when the weather is hot.  Being a vegetarian and vegan blog, a lot of the recipes have vegetables.  As it turns out, I use this grill for a lot more than vegetables.  This is not a sponsored post, but this  George Foreman Grill is the best I have ever used, and I have had grills for decades.
