What To Do With BBQ Jackfruit

This National BBQ Month, think beyond the bun.

Savory, sweet and saucy BBQ Jackfruit is the perfect way to celebrate National BBQ Month, and it couldn’t be easier to enjoy. Simply heat it in a pan and add it to your favorite bun or platter with plant-based sides and sauce, or try one of these delicious recipes.

BBQ Jackfruit, Kale & Quinoa Bowl

We love the ease and versatility of a grain bowl. In this one, quinoa and black beans provide a hefty dose of plant protein while kale, bell pepper, corn and red onion add some pretty (and tasty!) color. Top with our BBQ Jackfruit Meal Starter, and you’ve got a satisfying meal for any day of the week.

BBQ Jackfruit Bao Buns

For a fun spin on the classic BBQ Jackfruit slider, try these Asian-inspired buns. Crunchy veggies meet chewy steamed buns and sweet-and-tangy sauce for an explosion of texture and flavor that beautifully highlights young jackfruit. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with some extra sauce for dipping.

BBQ Jackfruit Quesadilla

So simple it doesn’t really need a recipe, this one’s sure to make it into your weekly dinner rotation—especially if you’re cooking for kids. We love the addition of black beans, fresh cilantro, and diced red onion for nutrition and texture—and we strongly suggest topping the whole thing with a scoop of homemade guac.

BBQ Jackfruit Pomegranate Dates

Perfect for serving at a dinner or cocktail party, these jewel-like stuffed dates pack a ton of flavor into an adorable bite. Ingredients like plant-based goat cheese and fresh pomegranate arils complete the sweet-and-savory BBQ Jackfruit, resulting in an unforgettable treat.

Hawaiian BBQ Jackfruit Pizza

If the party you’re planning is of the pizza variety, we recommend trying this tropical twist featuring BBQ Jackfruit, BBQ sauce, sweet pineapple, and fresh cilantro. The result is basically a beach vacation for your taste buds, and who doesn’t want that?

Pulled BBQ Jackfruit Salad

If you’re anything like us, you sometimes crave a big, hearty salad—and nothing else will do. When that hunger strikes, mix up a batch of Ashley Melillo’s vegan Cashew Ranch Dressing and create this leafy entree starring our BBQ Jackfruit. It’s reminiscent of a salad you’d find at a favorite restaurant, but better.

BBQ Jackfruit Tacos

Our beloved BBQ Jackfruit meets creamy coleslaw and a dash of heat (thanks to fresh jalapenos) for crowd-pleasing tacos that taste like summertime. These beg to be eaten outdoors in the sunshine, and definitely deserve a spot on your Memorial Day Weekend menu.
