2x 400g cans Biona Organic Jackfruit

BBQ seasoning :

2 Tbsp Biona Coconut Sugar

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp chili powder

180ml Biona Organic BBQ Sauce + more for topping

Avocado Slaw:

400g shredded cabbage + carrots

1/2 ripe avocado

1 Tbsp Biona Organic Maple Agave Syrup

1 teaspoon Biona Organic Lemon or lime juice

Salt + pepper to taste

Water to thin

For serving:

4-6 whole-grain, or gluten-free buns

1/2 cup roasted organic cashews


  1. Rinse, drain, and thoroughly dry jackfruit.
  2. Mix together BBQ seasoning and add to jackfruit. Toss to coat.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil and seasoned jackfruit and cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly charred.
  4. Add BBQ sauce and thin with enough water to make a sauce. Stir and reduce heat to low- medium and cook for about 20 minutes (up to 35 minutes on low for a deeper flavor).
  5. Remove lid and stir occasionally. TIP: For a finer texture, use two forks to shred the jackfruit as it cooks down.
  6. In the meantime, make slaw by adding all ingredients except vegetables (avocado through salt + pepper) to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Thin with water until a thick sauce is made, then add veggies and toss to coat. Set in the refrigerator until serving.
  7. Once the jackfruit has been properly simmered, turn up the heat to medium-high and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  8. Place generous portions of slaw on the bottom buns, top with a generous serving of BBQ jackfruit and cashews. Serve with extra BBQ sauce!
  9. Leftovers? This jackfruit mix keeps for up to a couple of days in the fridge, so add to your sandwich or salad for lunch the next day!
