Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 2
  • Healthy BBQ sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1.5 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp date syrup
  • 1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp tamari/soy sauce
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp red chili flakes
  • A pinch of sea salt & black pepper
  • Pulled Jackfruit:
  • 1 can jackfruit in brine, drained and rinsed
  1. First prepare the BBQ sauce.
  2. Place the chopped onion into a heated pan, add a dash of water and sauté for a few minutes.
  3. Once cooked, add in the remaining ingredients and simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Transfer the sauce into a jar and store in the fridge.
  4. Now, drain and rinse your jackfruit and cut off the inner parts of the jackfruit pieces.
  5. Place the remaining jackfruit into a heated pan and use forks to pull the fruit pieces apart into strings.
  6. Add enough of the BBQ sauce to cover every piece of the jackfruit and simmer on low for about 25-30 minutes.
  7. Serve in a sandwich with guacamole on top or with any other dish.
As in all of my recipes, 1 cup equals 250 ml.
