Scraps and Snippets ~ Jack "Tuna"

Jack "Tuna"

1 Cup vegetable broth
1 Can green jackfruit packed in brine (not the ripe in syrup)
2 tsps of your favorite seaweed, which I do NOT have...I did some research, then ended up not having much choice at the store. So I got hijaki
3 TBSP vegan mayo
3 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 TBSP minced onion
3 TBSP minced celery
1 TBSP sweet pickle relish
1/4 Cup sunflower seeds (optional if this would kill a family member, XTA)

Drain jackfruit. Place jackfruit in a saucepan and add the veggie broth. Simmer until the fruit softens and most of the broth is absorbed. (20 minutes or so.)

Shred the jackfruit into a bowl. (You can dump out the extra liquid if any remains).

This makes quite a bit. Enough for 8 sandwiches or so. Serve with crackers or scoop out a tomato and fill it with the tuna.
