Pulled BBQ Jackfruit Burger - makes 2-4, depending on how big your appetites are!

Jackfruit is usually sold in 400g tins in brine. Don't buy the tins sold in syrup!

Ingredients:

400g tin jackfruit in brine, drained and rinsed well

Rapeseed oil

For the BBQ sauce:

2 Tbsp ketchup

2 Tbsp smoked paprika

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tsp soft brown sugar

pinch salt 

2 Tbsp boiling water

1 clove black garlic, made into a paste (regular will do, just mince it)

Method:

  • Prepare jackfruit by cutting out the stalks

  • Rub in 1Tbsp of the BBQ sauce

  • Heat a drizzle of oil in a non-stick frying pan and add the jackfruit. Turn heat to low

  • Add another 4 Tbsp of the sauce and squash the jackfruit into the pan with the back of a fork.

  • Add the rest of the sauce and cook for 5 mins, stirring frequently. Add a splash of water if it's getting too dry.

Pile the jackfruit onto burger buns and serve with your favourite toppings. I served mine with a carrot and beet slaw
