Jackfruit zen bowl: vegetarian, gluten-free

I had a huge tin of jackfruit, and didn’t know what to do with it.

I decided to make one of my favourites – Zen scramble – this time using some jackfruit (I’m still not sure if it is one or two words).

I used the jackfruit as one of the vegetables and used egg, but I’m sure this would work without the egg – using the jackfruit in place of the scramble, rather than as well as – just use more.

I used the black quinoa again, but this time I mixed it in with regular quinoa, and I was much happier with the resulting texture.

How else should I use up my jackfruit? Any good recipes out there?
