BBQ JACKFRUIT SANDWICH WITH SPICY SLAW AND SMOKY MAPLE BBQ SAUCE
40 minutes
No this is not pulled pork! I know it looks like it but it's actually fruit. I know you just said, what! Fruit? Yes, this is actually jackfruit which is the largest fruit in the world. It is high in protein, fiber, potassium, and calcium. It has a meaty texture which is a great replacement for vegans. Jackfruit is a low fat, low calorie food that goes great with bbq, as tacos, on pizza, or even chili! It's very versatile. Try it bbq style with some spicy slaw on a fresh bun and your set!

Ingredients

BBQ JACKFRUIT

  • 14oz can organic Jackfruit
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp MRM Mesquite Powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce (I used an organic smoky maple BBQ sauce)

SPICY SLAW

  • 1 cup purple cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp vegan mayo
  • ½ jalapeno diced
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt + pepper for taste

2-3 Brioche buns

Directions

  1. Rinse, drain and dry the jackfruit. Cut off center core and discard.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add your spices, then add jackfruit and toss.
  3. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of oil and add jackfruit. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add bbq sauce and a splash of water to thin out a little, stir and reduce heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and cook for about 20 minutes to allow flavors to marry.
  5. While the jackfruit cooks, add slaw ingredients to a mixing bowl, toss gently then refrigerate.
  6. Once the jackfruit has a nice color and is tender, shred with a fork and begin to plate. Add a little bbq sauce to the bottom bun, a generous serving of jackfruit, then your slaw. Enjoy!
