Jackfruit Recipes for National BBQ Month

You don’t even need to fire up the grill.

May means it’s time to celebrate National BBQ Month. Our BBQ Jackfruit makes it easy (just heat and enjoy!) but if you’re looking to try something new, these delicious jackfruit recipes put a fun spin on plant-based barbecue.

Pulled BBQ Jackfruit Salad

We love a hearty entree salad this time of year. As the weather warms up, cool off with this combination of crunchy veggies, creamy cashew ranch dressing, and satisfying BBQ Jackfruit.

BBQ Jackfruit Ribs

Avocados and Ales

Sometimes, it’s all about the presentation. This recipe combines jackfruit with savory ingredients like nutritional yeast, mushroom powder, and wheat gluten to create a pull-apart loaf perfect for a backyard barbecue.

Plant-Based Pulled Pork Pizza

Topped with coleslaw and your favorite sauce, this Plant-Based Pulled Pork Pizza is basically the beloved sandwich in flatbread form. If you’re a fan of both foods (and who isn’t?), then you’ve got to try this hybrid.

Sweet ‘n Spicy BBQ Jackfruit, Kale and Mango Melts

If you’re someone who craves a tropical vacation as soon as the seasons change, perhaps this sweet and spicy quesadilla will hold you over. It’s so full of melty, saucy flavor that you might forget it’s packed with plant-based nutrition, too.

BBQ Jackfruit Bao Buns

Consider these handheld treats an Asian-fusion alternative to classic BBQ jackfruit sliders. Swap out the bread for prepared steamed bao buns, add a tasty sesame “slaw” of marinated veggies, and you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried this quick and easy meal before.

BBQ Jackfruit Empanadas

I Can You Can Vegan

If you’ve got the time, you’ll find this recipe to be well worth it. We love the combination of our BBQ Jackfruit and flaky empanada dough, and the accompanying avocado ranch dipping sauce is lick-your-fingers good.

Vegan BBQ Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Vegan With Curves

Spoiler alert: BBQ jackfruit and sweet potatoes make a really, really good combination. And if you know how to bake a potato, you don’t even need a recipe—but just in case, this one is super helpful and a surefire hit.

Plant-Based BBQ Sauce

No matter which BBQ jackfruit recipe you’ve decided to make, we’re pretty sure it’ll be even better with extra BBQ sauce. Sure, you could pick up a bottle of your favorite brand—but why not try to make it from scratch? This recipe is the perfect blend of sweet and savory, and it’s plant-based (just choose soy sauce or Tamari instead of Worcestershire.)
