Pulled jackfruit

  • 1 canned young green jackfruit
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion (around 80g), sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 50ml water
  • 4 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 4 vegan burger buns, toasted
  • 2 small pickled cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Green salad leaves


  1. Rinse, drain and shake out any excess water through a sieve and chop roughly.

  2. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan, add the minced garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes until the garlic turns slightly golden in colour. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add in the chopped jackfruit and water, reduce the heat to medium and cover the lid simmer until all water is evaporated, takes about 5 minutes.

  4. Use a potato masher and mash until all the jackfruit and tie apart. You may also use a fork to "pull" as well.

  5. Add 2 tbsp barbecue sauce and salt, mix and stir for other 7-8 minutes. The pulled jackfruit should be a bit brown, dry and curve up on the edge, even a few strands get a bit burnt.

  6. Turn off the heat and 2 tbsp barbecue sauce, mix well, so all the jackfruit is well cooked and saucy.

  7. Remove it from the heat and serve it on a burger bun with pickled cucumbers, tomato, avocado and green salad leaves.
