WHAT’S GOING ON HERE:

Jackfruit: Jackfruit is a tropical tree fruit. Its texture is similar to a pineapple with a super mild flavor. Jackfruit once cooked can be shredded to a similar texture pulled pork.

Bbq sauce: For this recipe use whatever barbecue sauce you have on hand.

Scotch bonnet powder: Scotch bonnet powder is just as spicy as the fresh stuff. A little goes a long way. You can alternatively use jalapeno powder, cayenne or any other hot pepper powder you have on hand.

Creamy Slaw: Kale, carrot, green onions, red cabbage all make the veggies for my creamy slaw. Kale and cabbage hold up well to being dressed. Which makes it great for a wrap. Use your sturidest greens the wont breakdown competely to moisture.

Cucumbers: Cucumbers add a nice refreshing crunch to the dish. For some added salty tang you can swap the cucumber out for pickle spears.

Tomato: Tomatoes adds a little flavor and also adds a little moisture to the wrap. Lightly pepper the tomatoes for a little extra flavor.

TIPS& TRICKS FOR THE BEST BARBCUE JACKFRUIT + KALE SLAW WRAP

dressing the slaw: you dont want to dress your slaw too late or too heavy before rolling. dress the slaw 5-10 minutes prior to use to help it retain its crunch make the dressing in a seperate container. pour half of the dressing around the edge of the bowl. toss the kale into the dressing. add more dressing if needed.

jackfrfuit: jackfruit can be hard to find fresh but its generally always avaible canned. this recipe uses canned jackfruit in water. alternatively its often sold in brine. brined jackfuit is often sitting in salt, sugar or both.

cool the jackfruit: when simmering the jackfruit. the jackfruit is ready once the barbecue sauce is thickened and you can shred the fruit with two forks. start off by simmering the jackfruit in water adding the barbecue sauce later on keeps the pot from thickening too soon and burning. slightly cool the jackfruit before adding it to the wrap.

make it plant based: to make this recipe plant based swap the mayo for plant based mayo.

handling the jackfruit: when its time to make the jackfruit drain the water from the can. you can choose to rinse the jackfruit but its not necessary. seeds can be removed but they are completely edilble and packed full of vitamins. so i always keep them in. jackfruit should simmer covered so that it can break down entirely.
