BBQ Sauce
 5 tbsp tomato paste
 1 tsp dijon mustard
 ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
 1 tsp garlic powder
 ¼ cup maple syrup
 1 tsp onion powder
 1 tbsp fancy molasses
 1 tbsp smoked paprika
 4 pitted medjool dates
 1 tsp salt
 1 tsp pepper
 Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

 1 tbsp olive oil
 1 tbsp minced garlic
 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

'Pulled' Jackfruit

Drain, rinse and de-seed the jackfruit.


Heat olive oil in medium saucepan on med-low heat.


Sauté garlic and red onions with a pinch of salt until till soft (approximately 5 minutes).


Add the jackfruit and ¼ cup of water to the pan and cook for 6-8 minutes on medium heat.


Add prepared BBQ sauce. Reduce heat to med-low and simmer for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally, using a wooden spoon to break up the jackfruit to give it a pulled texture. Slowly add ¾ cup of water throughout cooking time as the sauce reduces. Jackfruit is ready when the core of the jackfruit is fork tender and jackfruit has a pulled texture.


Spoon on to buns, serve as is or add toppings of your choice.
