Promise not to think we're crazy? The base of this vegan "pulled pork" sandwich is... a fruit! Jackfruit is a type of fruit that grows mostly in India and Bangladesh, and can be found in many Asian grocery stores. Just look in the canned fruits and veggies aisle, and choose a type that comes in water or brine, not syrup. After that, all you need to do is simmer it for about 25 minutes in a homemade BBQ sauce, shred with a fork, and it's ready! The pulled jackfruit in this recipe makes a great sandwich or taco filling. Try it in a burger bun with sliced avocado and some crunchy JIVE spicy coconut chips, and you'll be instantly hooked on this amazing, versatile fruit.
