Let’s Meet Our Chef, Courtney…
Courtney Grant has been vegan for 2 years, dealing with health issues, he made the switch to a plant-based lifestyle, and never looked back! Feeling as great as he did and seeing that so many people didn’t see the fullness of food and flavors that being vegan can bring, he wanted to start a vegan channel to uplift the community and bring awareness not only to vegans but to non-vegans as well! Cooking comfort food for him has been such a joy as he grew up in Jamaica and Florida with his family eating comfort food around the dinner table. Eating healthy is something he always strives for but every now and then a cheat meal or two won’t hurt. Now he is in California dishing out some amazing meals on his channel Vegan Cooking with Courtney, reaching as many people as possible. His journey started out with health and taking care of himself, which led him to now want to spread awareness not only to take care of yourself, but the environment that surrounds us and the animals that can’t defend themselves. So go and watch some amazing cooking with Courtney episodes!
Who Says You Can’t Have Pulled “Pork” as a Vegan?
Vegan pulled pork is easy to make with jackfruit and mushrooms, and Courtney shows us just how easy and delicious it is! He uses jackfruit and mushrooms as the “pork.” Jackfruit is the perfect ingredient to mimic shredded pork because of its shreddable texture and its ability to absorb flavors so easily. Add the right spices and sauces, and you’ve got the perfect vegan “pork” sandwich that even your non-vegan friends or family will love. It is so flavorful, and oh so delicious! Then add your side of BBQ tofu and homemade chips and you have the perfect comfort meal. The recipe is below so give it a try.
