BBQ Pulled Jackfruit gets a tropical twist! Jackfruit pulled “pork” with sweet mango is an easy vegan dinner. Lime jalapeño coleslaw adds crunch.



BBQ Pulled Jackfruit

  • 1 can green jackfruit, drained & rinsed
  • 1 cup organic bbq sauce
  • 1 Tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup mango
  • 3 drops liquid smoke
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns

Lime Jalapeno Coleslaw

  • 3 cups purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp jalapeno, minced (or more, to taste)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Combine coleslaw ingredients in a bowl. Toss well to coat.
  2. In a small pot, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the drained, rinsed jackfruit. Boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the water. Using 2 forks, shred the jackfruit in the pot.
  4. Add BBQ sauce, vegan Worcestershire sauce, mango and liquid smoke.
  5. Return heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
  6. Divide BBQ pulled jackfruit between the 4 buns. Top with coleslaw.


This recipe is vegan. However, please check the label on your BBQ sauce. For gluten-free, substitute whole wheat buns for GF buns, bread or rolls of choice. Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. BBQ Pulled Jackfruit is easily doubled or tripled.
