Jackfruit seems to be popping up everywhere lately and with good reason; it’s super versatile, nutrient dense and makes a top notch vegan alternative to pulled pork. These bbq pulled jackfruit buns with a simple slaw are always a crowd pleaser!
You can find canned jackfruit at asian supermarkets and it’s usually very affordable which is a bonus. The important part: make sure you get young green jackfruit in water or brine, NOT in syrup.
We’ve included an easy recipe for a healthier, vegan bbq sauce below but if you’re short on time (or the will to make bbq sauce) then store bought will work just fine, although you might need to thin it out with a little water.
This recipe also comes out great in a slow-cooker if you prefer to cook it that way!
