This recipe for bbq pulled jackfruit burgers is perfect for those nights where you need a little comfort. Jackfruit is really easy to grasp once you've cooked with it once, so why not try in within a burger!
400g tinned jackfruit (you want young jackfruit in either brine or spring water)
3 cloves minced garlic
1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
1 finely chopped small red onion
1 finely chopped red chilli
1/4 cup bbq sauce
brioche burger buns (I just used shop bought)
seasonal beef tomato
Preheat the oven to 180˚C
Heat a glug of olive oil to an oven proof pan and gently fry the red onion and chilli
Prepare your jackfruit by draining the tin and pulling apart the fruit to give a 'pulled pork' looking texture then add to the frying pan with the onion and chilli.
Add the dried spices with a large pinch of salt and cook for a further 5-6 minutes
Add the minced garlic and fry for 1 minute before adding the bbq sauce (if you like yours even richer, add another glug of bbq sauce
Place in the oven for around 20-25 minutes until starting to crisp
Serve up on a brioche bun with a thick layer of vegan mayo, curly lettuce, sliced tomato and another dollop of bbq sauce on top.
