Slow Cooker Pulled Jackfruit Sandwich



Makes about 8 servings

Ingredients:


For the jackfruit:

  • olive oil

  • 1 large onion, diced

  • 4 cans of jackfruit like this or this, drained and rinsed

  • 2/3 cup of organic ketchup

  • 1/2 cup of soy sauce

  • 2/3 cup of apple sauce

  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

  • 2/3 cup of coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 3 tsp of garlic powder

  • 2 tsp of onion powder

  • Generous amounts of salt & pepper

  • optional 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (more if you like spicy)

For assembling:

  • Whole grain burger buns like this or this

  • Vegan mayo

  • Avocado

  • Sliced red cabbage & shredded carrots or make your own cole slaw

  • Optional can of black beans, drained and rinsed (for protein)

Sauté onions and jackfruit in a little olive in a pan over medium heat for a few minutes then transfer to slow cooker. And all remaining jackfruit ingredients, mixing around, and seasoning well with salt & pepper. Put slow cooker setting on low, cooking for 6 hours and shredding/pulling apart with a fork once cooked.


For assembling I recommend toasting your burger buns. Spread vegan mayo on both sides. Mash avocado on one side and mash black beans on the other (if using). Add jackfruit, then top with shredded carrots & cabbage. Enjoy warm! If you have leftovers I like saving to put on pizza the following night.
