Grilled Jackfruit Tacos. I know, you may be in an area of the country that is not ready for grilling, or for tacos. You are still fighting the dark, cold winter. If that is the case, you may prefer Grilled Jackfruit Chipotle Chili for dinner to warm you until spring arrives. Just know though, these tacos are something to look forward to. The combination of the smoky flavor of the grilled jackfruit and the tangy bite of the sauerkraut is perfection. Jackfruit is a versatile ingredient, and it dresses up well with herbs and spices. These tacos are vegan, gluten free and dairy free.

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.
