These jackfruit sliders are one of my favourite things to make right now. Think pulled pork - but VEGAN. #mouthwatering
Now, before I get into the recipe, I would like to give a big shout out to Silver Hills Bakery. I love supporting companies like Silver Hills because of their dedication to making plant-powered foods from organic, sprouted whole grains (hi easy digestion!) and a simple list of ingredients! Their aim is to ensure that the nutrient-dense power of sprouted foods and their contribution to a healthy lifestyle is shared in as many places as possible.
A Little More on Sprouting…
Sprouting ensures your blood sugar levels stay steady and provides energy to power you through a full day’s work and play. When grains begin to sprout, vital enzymes are released, breaking down starch stores and digestive inhibitors. This is why sprouted grains have lower glycemic index levels as well as increased soluble fibre and protein. High starch foods leave you foggy and lethargic. But whole sprouted grains’ complex carbs fuel your most important organ - your brain. Plus, essential nutrients, like B vitamins and vitamin C, are made more available to the body, giving you a boost of focus and mental alertness.
Sautee jackfruit over medium heat and sprinkle on a few of your favourite spices (mine: cumin seed, coriander, smoked paprika, garlic powder, turmeric). Cook till soft/falling apart.
Now make the slaw: using a mandolin, shred red cabbage finely, then in a bowl toss with ACV, vegan mayo, and salt and pepper.
For the chipotle cream: blend together equal parts cashews and water then add a saucy chipotle pepper (or 2) with adobo sauce. Mix in with jackfruit.
Assemble: on buns (I used Silver Hills sprouted burger buns), pile on some hummus, slaw, jackfruit, greens and finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Enjoy!
