THANK YOU to the blog Luminous Vegans for this recipe!! You rock :)
This barbeque sandwich was so delicious and easy too, I’m so glad we tried these! “How does a vegan eat barbeque?” you may ask. Enter the wonderful texture of Green Jackfruit. We found Young Green Jackfruit in the Asian isle at the supermarket.
Get yourself two cans of Green Jackfruit in Brine. Green, not yellow! Also get a good, tasty bottle of barbeque sauce. We bought an organic one that was sweetened with agave. It was the best BBQ sauce eva! You’ll also want to preheat your oven to 400 degrees at this time.
Jackfruit has a hard core in it which needs to be cut off and discarded. So get chopping and then you have this…
Now into the pan…
Now bust it up with your spatula! Nothing exciting yet, but take a closer look at the texture.
Time to get saucy. Coat the jackfruit in the BBQ sauce. We used a whole bottle for the two cans of jackfruit. Simmer it in the sauce for about 20 minutes on a lower temperature.
Next, spread it over a baking sheet (covered in tin foil if you want less mess).
Bake for about 20 minutes until it gets a bit crispy like this…
Pile the finished product on a bun and enjoy the amazing-ness!!
YUM!! Thanks again Luminous Vegans for the tasty recipe!
