Carolina BBQ & Avocado Sandwich

Okay, last Wednesday I made Carolina Jackfruit BBQ for the Lenten potluck, and I burned it, and I wanted to throw it away and I couldn’t believe anyone wanted to eat it! But they did. I had the leftovers in the fridge for a few days before I could bring myself to try the BBQ again and see if I could figure out why everyone liked it so much. You know what? I really liked it leftover and cold! And as I mentioned, I had a bunch of avocados to use up.

So I made this really simple sandwich with the leftover BBQ, thinly sliced onion, and sliced avocado in pita bread. I didn’t add anything else, it was great just like this. I still think I would prefer the jackfruit Not blackened, but this is really good!

By the way, this is still oil free and perfect for a strict fasting day.

  1. I always hear about people using jackfruit, but I never even consider trying it because fruit is sweet and why would I want a meat substitute that is a chewy sweet fruit? I’m sure it’s good, and I will open my mind and get some.

    • The recipes you’re seeing are most likely using young jackfruit in brine, so it’s actually not sweet at all – that’s what I’ve used in all my recipes so far. I am going to experiment with the ripe sweet kind, though – could be a nice base for a sweet BBQ sauce!
