Vegan BBQ Jackfruit Sliders

These are so good. The jackfruit is super tender and it all sort of melts in your mouth. Paired with a cool coleslaw and option to meal prep. 


  • 1 20oz canned jackfruit packed in water, drained and rinsed
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 garlic clove , minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke, (optional)
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 12 small dinner rolls or hawaiian rolls

Mixed Veggie Slaw

  • 1 11oz bag of broccoli, brussels, and kale slaw, (or any slaw you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo, (or less)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup, (add extra if you like it a bit sweeter)
  • salt/pepper to taste


  • pickles
  • hot sauce for desired heat


  • Drain and rinse the canned jackfruit. Massage the jackfruit to break the pieces apart.
  • In a medium saucepan heat up the avocado oil and onion and cook until the onion is translucent about 5-6 minutes. 
  • Add in the jackfruit and and the rest of the ingredients except bbq sauce (save that for the end). Stir frequently so it doesn't stick and if you noticing drying out you can add a bit of water. Let it cook for 15 minutes. 
  • Once the 15 minutes is up add in the cup of bbq sauce, lower the heat and it simmer for another 10-15 minutes or until sauce is heated through. 
  • Now that the jackfruit is cooked through you can mash it up even more with a fork as it will be super tender and will shred more easily.
  • For the slaw mix all ingredients together until well combined.
  • Scoop bbq jackfruit onto a small roll and top with slaw. Serve and enjoy!
    You can also skip the bread and eat the bbq jackfruit with the slaw alone, totally meal prep worthy.
