Pulled Jackfruit Burgers

Looking for a fresh and delicious meal for the family?  They won’t miss the pork when they gets a taste of these Pulled Jackfruit Burgers—they might not even notice the difference! Ok, so what is jackfruit? The answer is in the name: jackfruit is actually… a fruit! What makes it so special is its flesh, which is both starchy and fibrous (it’s a great source of dietary fibre). Its flavour is naturally sweet, but with subtle flavouring, it takes on a perfect meat-like taste.


  1. Drain and rinse jackfruit.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add chopped onion and cook for 5 minutes until onion is soft.
  3. Add rinsed jackfruit, BBQ sauce, and water to the skillet. Stir well and let simmer on medium to low heat for 20 minutes. This will thicken the sauce.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Use a potato masher to mash and pull apart the jackfruit so that it resembles pulled pork. Add sriracha and salt and pepper.
  6. Spread the “pulled pork” out on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. You can add more BBQ sauce once cooked if you desire.
  7. To make cabbage slaw, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. You can eat immediately or place in a jar to pickle!
  8. To assemble burgers, top burger buns with pulled jackfruit, cabbage slaw, and jalapeños!
