Unripe jackfruit has a texture akin to pulled pork, which has made it a darling among vegan cooks and eaters.
Here, a velvety spread of lemony sweet peas is slathered over toasted crusty bread, then sprinkled with sliced radishes, scallion, fresh dill and creamy crumbles of feta cheese.
These figs can be served as a compote over dark chocolate ice cream or alongside a savory custard; chopped up and stirred into a relish or rice salad; and paired with bacon as a topping for creamy polenta.
This recipe makes brining worth the effort. It results in some of the most flavorful roasted chicken we’ve ever made.
