You may not be familiar with jackfruit, but it makes an amazingly satisfying vegetarian version of pulled pork. Look for jackfruit in Asian supermarkets. Be sure to buy the water-brined version, not the one packed in syrup.


Pulled Jackfruit:

  • 2 cans (20 oz/565 g each) jackfruit in water, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 whole wheat buns, sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

Crunchy Slaw:


Pulled Jackfruit:
  1. Place jackfruit on clean tea towel and roll up into log; twist and squeeze to release excess moisture.
  2. Pull the fruit from the hard core and place in bowl; finely chop core and add to bowl.
  3. Add sugar, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper to jackfruit; toss to coat well.
  4. Heat oil in skillet set over medium heat; cook jackfruit mixture for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned.
  5. Stir in barbecue sauce; reduce heat to low and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until sauce is thick and sticky, and jackfruit is very tender.
Crunchy Slaw:
  1. Add cabbage and Nature’s Path Pumpkin Seed + Flax Granola; toss to coat.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together yogurt, vinegar, maple syrup, salt and pepper.
  3. Toast buns; spoon jackfruit evenly over bottom of buns and layer slaw and sliced avocado over top.
  4. Cap with remaining buns.
