Jackfruit Vegan Recipes: Jackfruit BBQ Bowl

Truth be told I never cared much for BBQ...but that was because I hadn't tried it homemade! The difference is night and day! Honestly you can pour homemade BBQ sauce on anything and it will taste delicious.

This jackfruit vegan recipe is particularly yummy though because of it's texture. Jackfruit is often called the "vegan pulled pork." You'll get the same chewiness and jackfruit soaks up BBQ EVEN better I would venture to say!

Try this recipe at your next cook-out or just when you feel like smothering something in BBQ sauce!
