Plant Pure Nation Recipes


Two 20-oz cans green jackfruit in water, drained
1 ½ cups barbecue sauce
1 onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced (medium pieces)


Rinse the green jackfruit thoroughly

Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker at medium heat for 4-5 hours.  Jackfruit will soften, begin to fall apart and take on the consistency of pulled pork.  Use a fork to pull apart the fruit and stir thoroughly.

Turn the slow cooker to low heat and cook for another 1-2 hours.

•    Customize this recipe with a favorite barbecue sauce that has no added oils and low sodium content.
•    This recipe gets better the longer it’s cooked. Leftovers are good.
•    Serve the barbecue jackfruit on a whole-grain bun and top with coleslaw.

Yields:  4 to 6 servings
Prep time:  5 minutes
