It’s no secret that Trader Joe’s offers loads of delicious plant-based products. From the wide variety of mouthwatering meat and dairy alternatives, like almond milk and meatless meatballs, to the gamut of ready-made meal options, like frozen vegan enchiladas and canned vegetarian chili, this store is packed with healthy, animal-free foods.

And now, the grocer is capitalizing on the growing popularity of jackfruit—a must-have vegetarian staple—with an exciting new frozen entree: Yellow Jackfruit Curry with Jasmine Rice!

Trader Joe’s describes the dish:

Yellow Jackfruit Curry with Jasmine Rice finds its texture in the chunks of artichoke-like jackfruit, chunks of eggplant and red bell peppers. This authentic coconut milk based Thai yellow curry is loaded with flavor and has a moderate amount of heat.

As veganism gains popularity, companies like Trader Joe’s are taking advantage of the expanding plant-based food market. In fact, just last week TGI Fridays announced plans to offer the Beyond Burger at nearly 500 locations in the U.S., and Pizza Hut committed to offering vegan cheese at all of its U.K. locations.
