Jackfruit-Tuna-Melt-Vegetarian

Jackfruit Tuna Melt (Vegetarian)

In this tuna-free tuna melt recipe, I make a delicious veggie-packed hot open-faced sandwich using jackfruit instead of tuna. Jackfruit is an excellent meat substitute that is just plain whole fruit. Not grown in a lab or pumped with preservatives.
