Anyway, I was then reminded of my bookmarked recipes when a fellow blogger shared on Facebook a link to Buzzfeed Food of a film clip called BBQ Pulled Jackfruit That'll Fool Meat-Eaters.
I've had Jackfruit a few times in a curry, but it never crossed my mind to share it on my blog as its one of those dishes that I take for granted and don't think of it being overly unusual or exotic, but when I saw Jackfruit being used as a substitute for meat and in a BBQ type dish, well like any greedy vegetarian person, I wanted to try it.
I finally got round to making vegan BBQ Pulled Jackfruit last year, but never got round to photographing it as it was made always late in the evening and scoffed down very quickly. The other delay in sharing it with my readers is Jackfuit is not easy to come by. Fortunately I found some at a Bangladeshi Greengrocers and have stocked up.
I am not going to post a recipe here as you get the idea from my blog post and the links including one from my fellow blogger Sarojini who blogs over at The Yogi Vegetarian has a awesome seitan variation of BBQ pulled pork which I have also bookmarked to make, it has me drooling. So expect to see that appear on my blog soon for a weekend brunch or lunch.
Here is a link to More Vegan Blog who also made a recipe inspired by many other vegan bloggers, but I think her blog post is insightful for those of you not familiar with Jackfrruit.
