Juicy BBQ Jackfruit Burger

A smokey, juicy BBQ style jackfruit bap to get you in the summer mood. This is as tasty as it looks and oh so easy to make. Those of you who have never cooked with jackfruit before don’t worry its not complicated. Where do I buy jackfruit? well, I pick it up in my local market canned or try the asian markets by you for a fresh alternative. This recipe also goes great in a buddha bowl, rice bowl or a wrap.
