BBQ JACKFRUIT WITH CORN AND SLAW
Summer is approaching and that means time for grilling season! If you’re looking for a new recipe to add to your vegan BBQ collection, this is perfect - it makes a complete family dinner or casual company fare. The kids will love it, too.
40 oz canned jackfruit in water, drained and rinsed
1 large white onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Vegetable broth, approx. ¼ cup or more
BBQ sauce of choice
Coleslaw with Apples, see recipe below
Shred the rinsed and drained jackfruit by pulling the pieces with your hands, discarding any of the harder pieces of the core. Heat about 2 tablespoons of vegetable stock in a non-stick skillet and add sliced onions and garlic until lightly browned. Add as much vegetable stock as needed to avoid sticking. Add the shredded jackfruit to the skillet and cook on medium, stirring until the jackfruit completely loses all its moisture, adding vegetable broth only to avoid sticking.
Add your BBQ sauce to the skillet just until jackfruit is coated. Cook just until heated through. Serve on a toasted bun spread with additional BBQ sauce and topped with coleslaw.
