  • 2 (20-ounce) cans young green jackfruit (about 3 cups), in brine or water, not syrup
  • 1 medium-size yellow onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce of choice
  • 4 vegan whole wheat burger buns


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Drain and rinse the jackfruit. Lay the jackfruit on a cutting board and dry it well with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  3. Once dry, slice the jackfruit with a knife until it has a shredded consistency.
  4. Place the jackfruit in a bowl along with the garlic, onion, and 3/4 cup of the barbecue sauce. Mix until well combined.
  5. Spread the jackfruit on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and brush with the remaining 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce. Bake for an additional ten minutes, or until slightly crisped.
  7. Serve in a bun with your desired burger toppings, or as a taco filling.
