BBQ jackfruit burgers


[Makes 5 burgers]

Drain and rinse jackfruit.

Place oil and chopped onion into a frying pan. Simmer for 5 minutes until onion is translucent.

Add jackfruit, BBQ sauce and water. Stir, cover, letting it cook for 15 minutes. Stir and check if the jackfruit is soft and tender – add a little more water if required. Let it cook again for another 15 minutes 

With a potato masher of 2 x forks, shred the jackfruit apart, to resemble pulled pork. 

Add salt, pepper and more BBQ sauce if required.

Put together your burgers with salad ingredients and BBQ jackfruit – and enjoy!
