4.60 from 8 votes

Vegans are going crazy about jackfruit. Yes, jackfruit is a fruit as it has seeds but that's not the reason for the world going gaga about this fruit which is mostly cooked as a vegetable. The reason is when cooked, it has a "Pulled" thread like texture which is moist and gives the feel of BBQ "Pulled" Pork. It can replace the pork, tuna or crab for that matter in your burgers and sandwiches. Confused how? Well, we show you a simple Vegan jackfruit pulled pork burger for your Vegan party. Canned version of jackfruit is readily available in most of the super markets but to get the most benefits and the real taste, go for fresh, young and green jackfruit.
