easy vegan 'pulled pork'
I started seeing jackfruit being used as pulled pork around the food blogger world and had to give it a try. I couldn't believe how easy it was and I used only a few ingredients. The texture is great and the jackfruit itself takes on the flavours of what you cook it with. This recipe serves two people and is especially impressive to meat eaters!
- 2 cans of young jackfruit in water (can be found at Asian markets and some grocery stores)
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1/4 cup of your favourite sauce (I used BBQ)
- Dash of salt
Drain and rinse the jackfruit in water and pull apart into small pieces.
On a pan on medium heat, add the olive oil, jackfruit, onion, garlic and salt.
Saute for about 7 minutes.
Add the BBQ sauce and mix.
Serve on a gluten free bun with your favourite toppings. I used avocado and purple cabbage!
