The cashews and slaw were a really nice touch, too. Looking forward to trying this soon. Picked things to well with BBQ anyway :). But if you rinse it really well, brined works too! While we haven’t tried freezing it, others in the comments above have had success in doing so. Not sure where I went wrong, but it came out way softer and more liquid-y than intended. xo! Cashews?

Two years ago I tried this recipe with jackfruit in syrup and it did not turn out right. So good! Is there a mofdification for if we have the canned jackfruit that IS in brine? Could I rinse the jackfruit with water? NOTE: Just be sure it’s young green jackfruit in water, not brine or syrup and most certainly not ripe jackfruit. It’s super helpful for us and other readers. This dish is AMAH-ZING. I am now officially a jackfruit nut. Crazy! The jackfruit tasted great and I was still amazed at the outcome.

Hey there the only canned Jack fruit I can find where I live is in syrup. Need to give it a go! The dish was spicy (I made the BBQ seasoning and used Trader Joe’s BBQ sauce) for some people in the family but I loved the heat. Is there any way that young green jack fruit in brine can be utilized for this recipe? They do slaw and guacamole, and add blackbeans to the jackfruit. It is fantastic!! I picked up frozen from an Indian supermarket as they only had tinned Jackfruit in syrup. I can’t wait to give this a try!!! I made this several times and it is always easy and delicious! I sautéed the spices and jackfruit in little oil, like you did in the pan, and after a few minutes added the bbq sauce. I figure rinse it with water maybe even soak it and rinse and resoak and rinse, etc. I made it for my parents and though they both eat animals, they really enjoyed this vegan meal. Like one of the other comments have been vegan since the beginning of the year but was craving pulled pork bun and this HIT the spot. This recipe is simple, requiring just 10 ingredients (give or take a spice) and 30 minutes! I made this last night and WOW…absolutely delicious! Hope you give this one a try, Gaby! My mother and I have recently transitioned to a plant-based vegan lifestyle and we, being from Oklahoma and Texas, really wanted to find a vegan BBQ alternative.

I LIVE by this blog, I literally cook Dana’s recipes every week, I’ve tried so many and all of them have come out tasting delicious. I just made this (minus the cashews) and it is SO GOOD! Also love the avo. Whether or not this one does a good job, I am going back for thirds. Even the meat-eaters were satisfied! Oh no! One thing though… no cashews! I made this once before and it was delish! I might try adding shredded or minced seitan next time to see if I can inprove the texture. It’s yellow and sweet. This is a quick recipe with minimal of ingredients, ready in 20 mins! I was excited when I saw the recipe, until I read that my cans were in brine. Xo. keep up the good work (and yes I’m a teacher haha) ! any ideas? Ideally it’s just water but if there’s brine just rinse well! AH-flippin-MAZING!!! It looks amazing! YES.
