BBQ jackfruit

  1. Rinse the jackfruit well, drain and set aside.

  3. Strain the jackfruit and pull or crush each jackfruit piece into shreds then set aside.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, then sauté the onion until translucent (around 5 minutes).
  5. Add garlic, spices, mustard and salt and cook for an additional minute or until fragrant, stirring regularly.
  6. Add jackfruit, tomato paste, water, maple syrup and apple cider vinegar then cover and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Red Cabbage Slaw

  1. In a small bowl, combine vegan mayonnaise and lime juice and whisk until smooth.
  2. Add red cabbage and toss to combine.

Lightly toast burger buns then assemble sandwiches with a lettuce leaf on the bottom topped with BBQ jackfruit and finally the red cabbage slaw.
