BBQ Peach Jackfruit With Chipotle Avocado Slaw

Jackfruit arrived at Trader Joe’s, and I have been having a blast playing around with it! This is my first recipe in a Jack Fruit Series! Everyone has been talking about the health benefits of this fat-free food that is packed with vitamins, high in fiber and very filling! You can read all about jackfruits and their health benefits here.

This is what I’ve learned about preparing jackfruit. First, don’t open the can all the way. Instead, leave it partially connected in order to drain the brine, fill water into the can, empty the water, and then repeat the rinsing process. Then, you remove the core from the jackfruit pieces. It is very similar to cutting the core off of a piece of pineapple.

This was my first attempt at making “pulled pork” jackfruit sliders. Peaches are in season, and I’ve been eating them in salads, smoothies, and marinades. So I decided to give a nice twist to a traditional barbecue recipe. Jackfruit takes on the flavor of what you serve it with, so good sauces are important. I’ve been very busy lately; I didn’t have time to make the sauce from scratch, so I used Wildtree. Wildtree has yummy organic gluten-free sauces and spices. I actually downloaded an app to my phone that allows me to filter recipes by my desires: gluten-free and vegan. It’s really neat!

First, put Wildtree BBQ Gourmet Sea Salt Blend on the jackfruit. Stir to coat. Add to slow cooker or large sauté pan.

Add 1/4 cup BBQ sauce and let cook in the slow cooker on low for 2.5 – 3 hours or 30 minutes on the pan on the stove on medium-low.

After it is cooked, add the remaining 1/4 cup of additional BBQ sauce.

While it’s cooking, prepare the Chipotle Avocado Slaw. Add the chipotle vegan mayo (I used Just Mayo Chipotle), avocado, apple cider vinegar in the Vitamix or blender.

It is hard to find gluten-free vegan buns. I used these Schar Multigrain Ciabatta.IMG_8821.JPG

    I’ve never tried Jackfruit but I have been curious – what does it taste like? haha – weird question but I wanna know!! sweet or savoury? I’ll have to see if I can find some over here. I’ve also heard good things about Wild Tree!

      I’ve been thinking about this – I think it has a slight flavor of pineapple and banana. It’s really plain and needs spices. It seems to go well with whatever you put it with.
