The smoky sweet flavor and texture of BBQ without the meat!
  • 2 20-oz. cans young green jackfruit (in water or brine), drained, rinsed and dried
  • 1 cup vegan BBQ sauce
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 peach, peeled and cubed
  • 4 buns for serving, toasted
  • Vinegar slaw for topping (optional)
  1. In a large skillet, combine BBQ sauce, liquid smoke and peach cubes. Cook over medium heat until the peaches start to soften and break down, about 10 minutes. Add water a tablespoon at a time if the sauce gets too thick.
  2. Transfer sauce to a blender. Blend until smooth and set aside.
  3. Add a tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Add jackfruit and sauce until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add pureed sauce mixture and thin with a little water as needed until all jackfruit is coated in sauce. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Remove from heat and shred jackfruit with a fork.
  6. Serve jackfruit on toasted buns topped with slaw.
You can find canned jackfruit at most Asian markets
