I know I've mentioned this sauce before, but it is so worth repeating. If you haven't tried this, you really should. It is sweet and a little spicy and just absolutely amazing. It's great with tofu, veggies, with a spoon, or as I discovered last night with jackfruit and mushrooms!
I sauteed the mushrooms and jackfruit after I shredded it in a little coconut oil, and after a few minutes added a little coconut aminos and once that was absorbed I added a few glugs of this sauce, turned the heat to low and let everything simmer away while I made the rice. The whole meal came together in twenty minutes and was super duper delicious. I also added a little crushed red pepper to the veggies and sriracha at the end cause I'm a five star gal. This was better than most take out I've ever gotten in my life. It was also a low calorie meal. I learned that a whole can of jackfruit only has ninety calories! I find jackfruit to be not that filling so I like to bulk it up with mushrooms. The Trader Joe's jackfruit gets a huge thumbs up from me. It's inexpensive and very easy to work with. Some canned jackfruits I've tried I had to simmer in some water or broth to tenderize it before I could shred it. But this was very easily shreddable right out of the can. This is going to definitely become a regular meal for me.
Now that spring is here, the birds have been really active, and thee are lots of trees in front of my apartment. They also land on the railing of the deck and hang out. This makes Joan and Kanye very very happy!
And here's Joan sleeping with her favorite mouse yesterday. This is seriously how she was sleeping!
