Vegan Pulled Jackfruit/Kathal - 135 Kcal.

The best thing about being a vegan is being able to explore a world of mock meat. Most of us have no idea that meat is quite replaceable. And many Vegans use this as a tool to educate non-vegans for making the switch. A very easy to make dish, a vegan pulled jackfruit can be your ideal low kcal meal choice.
