BBQ Pulled Jackfruit


It’s all the rage.  I’ve been making this as a special for our taco truck and now its time to give the fishing rod instead of the fish.  I present to you our BBQ pulled jackfruit recipe.

serves 4

2 x 20oz cans young jackfruit in brine (never ripe in syrup)
1/2 large red onion sliced
2 cloves minced garlic
2  tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 TB organic brown sugar
3/4 cup bbq sauce


Sauté the onions in a medium skillet with a small amount of oil over medium heat. While onions are cooking drain and rinse your jack fruit.  Cut and finely chop the cores and lightly squish the main part of the fruit with your fingers or back of your knife to tenderize.  Put it all in a medium sized bowl and add the spices.  Toss to coat.  Add the bbq sauce and garlic and mix in.  Add to skillet once onions are translucent.  Cook for 10 minutes or until a little caramelization has occurred.



1 cup finely sliced red cabbage
1/2 medium red pepper finely sliced
1/4 cup plain coconut yogurt
2 tsp lemon juice
1 pinch sea salt


Mix it all together


Sliced avocado
Freshly sliced pineapple
Valentina hot sauce


I like the white ciabatta buns you can get at Safeway but use whatever buns you fancy.  Lightly heat the buns by putting them face down on the jack fruit while its cooking.  Put avocado down first, then jack fruit, then slaw, then pineapple and finally some hot sauce.   ENJOY!!!
