Bbq Vegan Pulled Jackfruit (Pulled ‘Pork’) Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 10 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 20 mins
2 cans jackfruit
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1/3 cup BBQ sauce, ensure vegan
2 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp cornstarch
1Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 F). Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
2Drain and rinse the jackfruit, and transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Shred it using a fork so it resembles a pulled pork texture. Add the cumin and half of the olive oil, stirring together well.
3Transfer the jackfruit to the baking tray, spreading it out into a single layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until crispy.
4Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Stir together the BBQ sauce, tamari, tomato paste, coconut sugar, apple cider vinegar, and water in a mixing bowl.
5When the jackfruit is ready, heat the rest of the olive oil in a pan over a medium-high heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened.
6Add the jackfruit, stir, and then add the sauce together with the cornstarch. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Serve immediately.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
