- 2 cans jackfruit in water
- 1 cup sweet yellow onion chopped
- 6 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tbsp vegan butter
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp agave nectar
- gluten free bread
- lettuce Cups
- collard Leafs
Drain and rinse jackfruit. In a medium bowl begin to shred sections with a fork or your fingers. Remove seeds and discard. Continue shredding jackfruit until the constancy is similar to pulled "meat."
In a large skillet sauté add butter, onion, and garlic on medium low for 5-8 minutes.
Add apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke, agave, ketchup, and shredded jackfruit.
Lower heat to simmer. Cover and cook until jackfruit is tender, 10-15 minutes. Add vegan broth, ketchup or water if it is too dry. Salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon onto toasted gluten free bread, into a lettuce cup, or right into your mouth.
To keep it simple:
- Buy minced garlic, I like Trader Joe's brand, or if you're a garlicaholic Costco has a HUGE container for a great price (I am Costco crazed)
- Use a pre-made vegan bbq sauce of your choosing instead of making it from scratch
Other Tips for Jackfruit:
- Do NOT buy it frozen or canned in syrup, just trust me, don't try it!
