Recipe Description

Unreal Vegan BBQ Jackfruit Recipe! Theres a lot of recipes out there but this one takes the cake. Vegan / Vegetarian BBQ Jackfruit Recipe! Although many recipes suggest using the jackfruit as is, I disagree. Instead, I like to cook it first. Similar to my Vegan Buffalo Chicken Dip, cooking the jackfruit first, gives it a different texture and flavor.

Recipe Directions

Slice onions into thin slivers

Saute sliced onions and garlic ina non-stick skillet

Use vegetable broth to avoid sticking

Drain and rinse canned jackfruit

Put all the jackfruit into a food processor with a large blade and pulse until shredded

When onions and garlic are browned, add shredded jackfruit the skillet.

Cook, on medium, stirring until jackfruit is completely dried out.

Add vegetable broth while cooking to avoid sticking

All fluid should be dissipated before adding BBQ sauce.

Then add as much BBQ sauce as you like until jackfruit is coated.

You may serve now on buns, in a wrap, or even as a salad topping, or you can store and reheat when ready to use.


Sauté the onions and garlic in a medium-sized saucepan until translucent.

Combine all other ingredients.

Bring to a boil.

Reduce to simmer.

Cook 20 minutes on simmer until sauce thickens.
