Hoisin Jackfruit Tacos
These hoisin jackfruit tacos are a speedy, 15-minute version of our classic vegan peking duck pancakes! We were making the pancakes the other day and we were thinking how we could definitely use tortilla wraps instead and create a taco version of them! We added in more fresh veggies to make it more taco-ey and voila – here are our delicious hoisin jackfruit tacos!
This recipe is part of the 15 minutes vegan meals series.
