Prepare jackfruit. Rinse the canned jackfruit well then pat dry. Slice away the cores – the really tough ends. Use your fingers to shred the jackfruit into little pieces.

step one

Cook jackfruit. Add the pulled jackfruit to a skillet with some oil and barbecue spices – let that cook for a few minutes.

step two

Add sauce. Add your favorite barbecue sauce, a little water to thin out, thensimmer for about 25 minutes.

step three

Topped with coleslaw and avocado is my favorite way to enjoy these!


You can also do a BBQ jackfruit power bowl, serving it up with some quinoa, greens, maybe some diced sweet potato, avocado and coleslaw.


This homemade coleslaw is made with creamy (no mayo!) dressing and perfect for healthy bbq side dishes or topping.
