Blackberry BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwiches (GF, V)

Changes: replaced brown sugar with coconut sugar; replaced ginger with allspice; used more sauce than recommended (I love a sloppy pulled pork sandwich!)



1 heaping cup fresh #blackberries

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp EVO

1/2 cup water plus more as needed

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

3/4 cup tomato sauce

2 tbsp tomato ketchup

1/2 tbsp Liquid Smoke

1 tbsp vegan worchestershire

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp adobo seasoning

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 tsp ground allspice


115 ounce cans young #jackfruit, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup water or vegetable broth (homemade to reduce sodium

1/4 cup BBQ sauce

S&P, to taste

To Serve

4 gluten free rolls, toasted if you like

Maybe coleslaw? I threw some shredded carrot on


Blackberry Barbecue Sauce

Heat oil in a medium sauce pan and combine onions, garlic, and berries over medium heat. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes until onions are browned, smashing berries as you stir.

Pour in 1/2 cup water to deglaze the pan and then add all other ingredients and simmer over low heat until thickened. You can add extra water if sauce gets too thick.

Cool and pour into sealable container and store in refrigerator. It should last for at least 3 weeks but I've kept it way longer before. You can also freeze.

The Sandwiches

Add the jackfruit and water or broth to a small saucepan or skillet with lid. Place over medium heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until the jackfruit begins to soften enough to shred apart. You can use a meat masher or forks to shred it.

Add the barbecue sauce and salt and pepper to taste then cover and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken and the mixture is hot.

Toast buns if desired and scoop some of the slaw or whatever and some of the bbq mixture into each. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with extra blackberry sauce if desired.
