Who needs pulled lamb sliders when you can just open a can of jackfruit? Just saying. It passed the test in my house! And I can tell you now, if you serve it to a meat eater and don’t say anything, they will not realize that this is vegan.
Time: 15 mins preparation, plus 10 minutes of cooking.
Yields: 4 serves
1 x 565 gram can of young green jackfruit **in brine**
¼ cup water
1 x 350 gram jar of vegan friendly Rogan Josh Simmer Sauce Medium
5 teaspoons of vegan friendly gravy powder
125ml of boiled water
1 cup of finely shredded red cabbage
½ cup of finely sliced carrot
½ cup of finely sliced cucumber skin
4 soft buns, cut in half
Drain and discard the brine from the jackfruit.
Trim the triangle ends from each piece of jackfruit and set them aside for another use and remove and discard any visible pips. Now gently rub the remaining jackfruit between your fingers. It should easily break apart and form a stringy texture. As you do this you may discover more pips, so toss those out too. You will end up with a generous cup of pulled jackfruit.
Place the ¼ cup of water and the jackfruit into a small non stick pot and simmer on a low heat until the water has almost dissolved. Add the Rogan Josh Simmer Sauce to the pot. Continue to gently cook.
Place the gravy powder into a small bowl and add the boiled 125 ml of water. Whisk well till its combined and lump free. Add it to the pot. Stir the mixture until it’s all well combined and gently simmer till you get a wet, but not runny mixture.
Allow the mixture to cool a little. Distribute onto the bottom half of each bun. Add the cabbage, carrot and cucumber. Top with the rest of the bun.
Serve immediately and ENJOY!!
Notes: You can get jackfruit from most well stocked Asian grocers. Be sure to get “unripe” jackfruit and jackfruit in “brine/water” – NOT the one in syrup.
These are gorgeous with crisp baby cos lettuce too. You get an awesome crunch with the contrast of the soft bun.
