  • 1x 565g tin young green jackfruit
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. dried sage
  • 1 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. garlic granules
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • ¼-½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 70ml Unsweetened Almond Breeze Almond Milk
  • 120g BBQ sauce

To serve:

  • Coleslaw
  • Gem, cos or iceberg lettuce lettuce
  • Bread buns


  1. Drain the jackfruit and pat the pieces dry on kitchen paper. Transfer the jackfruit pieces into a large bowl and add the lime juice and spices. Mix together and leave to marinade for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium frying pan. Add the marinated jackfruit and cook for a couple of minutes on each side. Pour over the Almond Breeze Almond Milk and spoon in the BBQ sauce. Stir and slowly bring to a simmer. Cook for 25 minutes, stirring regularly.
  3. As the jackfruit cooks, it will soften and you will be able to gently break it apart with the back of a spoon (or use 2 forks to pull the jackfruit apart).
  4. Serve immediately in bread buns with lettuce and coleslaw or on its own with salad.
