Meat free BBQ jackfruit plate with Walmart hushpuppies

Meat free BBQ might sound crazy, but it can be damned tasty with minimal effort. An of course who has time to smoke pulled pork from scratch every day right. What brings this together for us are the Walmart hushpuppies – dense little nuggets of deliciousness that add a richness to the overall plate. 

Aside from that we like to use:

  • BBQ jackfruit from Upton’s Naturals
  • Home made slaw 
  • Quick pickled cucumbers
  • Bush’ BBQ beans
  • BBQ sauce, home made here
  • Bread roll, also home made

Slaw: take some shredded cabbage, mix with Duke’s mayo (the best!), season with salt and pepper, refrigerate. Best left to chill for an hour

Quick pickled cucumber salad: thinly slice cucumbers, add 50/50 mix of rice wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar, season with salt and a little sugar. Best after chilling for an hour. Serve without pickling mix.

BBQ sauce: tons of recipes online for this. At its core I find myself mixing ketchup. mustard, soy, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika and garlic powder. From there, whatever else my mood takes me. The benefit of home made is that it’s far less sugary than store bought.

Bread roll: I had some home made rolls already laying around here. Store bought is obviously easier duh.
