Summertime is upon us and all I'm thinking about are these saucy, shredded barbecue jackfruit sandwiches! an easy blend of spices and bbq sauce grilled with the jackfruit and then topped with a slaw on a toasted sesame bun. not sure whats better.
Jackfruit BBQ Sandwiches
2 cans jackfruit, drained, rinsed and dried
1/3rd cup bbq sauce of your choice
1 tablespoon Califia Farms unsweetened creamer
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4th teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 shallot, minced
Salt + pepper to taste
Buns of your choice
For the Slaw
1⁄2 cup purple and green cabbage 1⁄2 cup shredded carrots
1/3rd cup vegan mayo
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 bundle cilantro
Begin by making your slaw by thinly slicing your cabbage and carrots. In a bowl mix with cilantro, vegan mayo, lime and olive oil. Let it sit in the fridge while you finish up with the jackfruit.
Next, shred your jackfruit and heat a skillet with a drizzle of oil.
Add in your minced shallot. and stir for 1-2 minutes. Next, add your jackfruit and let it cook down and get a little crispy. Add your onion powder, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper and bbq sauce. Mix well for 10 minutes.
Add in your creamer and mix until all the liquid is absorbed and the jackfruit is saucy and cooked through.
Toast your buns, top with your bbq jackfruit, slaw, cilantro, cover and serve!
