Vegan Smoky Bourbon Pulled Barbecue Jackfruit Sandwich Recipe

I like this recipe since you get 3 staples for the “value” of 1 which you’ll be able to serve up as an irresistible vegan sandwich, or as a part of totally different meals. A smoky home made bourbon barbecue sauce coats completely shredded steamed jackfruit (a terrific plant-based different to pulled pork), and is served inside a bun topped with a thinly shredded coleslaw that’s crunchy, colourful and the proper complement to this meal.

You may serve the jackfruit as a part of a wrap or veggie bowls as properly, or serve the bbq sauce over tofu or tempeh earlier than grilling them, and the coleslaw is scrumptious as a facet salad or topping for any meal.

For those who’ve by no means cooked with jackfruit earlier than, you may wish to discover cans of younger inexperienced jackfruit packed in brine, and steaming the chunky triangles will assist you to shred them into the proper texture.

I hope you love this scrumptious triple recipe, excellent for those who love a very good, hearty vegan barbecue jackfruit sandwich.
