Make everyday FRYday with Healthy Luxe's mouthwatering loaded vegan jackfruit fries! They can be served as a side dish, share platter or even an indulgent, hearty main meal. We've topped ours with Tender Jack Smokey BBQ so all the flavour is right there in the packet – all you need to do is bake the potatoes, warm the jackfruit and finish with your choice of cheese (dairy or vegan) or even guacamole. So simple and so satisfying!
They sometimes get a bad rap, but potatoes are actually packed with nutritional benefits – when they're not deep-fried in oil that is. They're high in fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 and contain zero cholesterol – meaning they're great for your heart health. A much healthier alternative to shredded meat, jackfruit is also high in fibre, low in calories, and naturally fat- and sodium-free.
