BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich

Holy f*ck this was good. I’m definitely a fan of jackfruit and love how it pulls apart so nicely. Very weird that it’s a fruit though…

This recipe is soooo easy like all I had to do was prepare the coleslaw. It’s one of my more simple and easy recipes, very suiting for a lazy ass day of not wanting to meal prep and cook an extravagant meal but still feel satisfied. My (non-vegan) brother also approved this message.

Ingredients:

Cabbage coleslaw:

  • 1 c green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 c purple cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1/2 c vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp celery seed
  • 1 package of BBQ jackfruit (I used Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit)
  • buns

Instructions:

  1. Empty contents of the BBQ jackfruit into a pan and heat it up. I added extra BBQ sauce because I like it saucy… your choice though.
  2. While it’s heating add all cabbage ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly so everything is coated. Place in fridge until jackfruit is ready.
  3. Pile the jackfruit on your bun, feel free to toast it, add a mound of slaw and enjoy!

Holy Sh*t Breakfast Tacos

Ummmmmmmm these are bomb af… there isn’t much more to say. You will not be disappointed and won’t want to share. But there is definitely enough to feed everybody. Try these b*tches out.

P.S. I’m really stepping my food photography game up… these look fiyaaaaa (;

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 3 red potatoes, diced size of dime
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 package of soyrizo
  • 1/2-1 14.4 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • tortillas

Secret Sauce:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 4 tbsp sriracha
  • 2 limes
  • chili powder
  • 1/4c water to thin

Optional Toppings:

  • salsa
  • avocado
  • cilantro

Instructions:

  1. Heat olive oil on medium-high heat in a large pan, once heated add onion and jalapeno, cooking until fragrant and soft. Add in potatoes and spices, stir and let cook 10 minutes without stirring, use a spatula and flip everything and cook another 10 minutes without stirring.
  2. While the potatoes cook make that saucy sauce. In a food processor add all ingredients and blend. If it isn’t thin enough add water until it’s the consistency you want. What’s nice about this sauce is you can add whatever you need to fix it to your liking. Need more spice just add sriracha and mix, more lime, add it in.
  3. Check your potatoes and see if they are tender by using a fork to pierce them. If not, do five minute increments of letting them cook and flipping with the spatula. Add in the soyrizo when the potatoes are ready, stir and cook about five minutes. Now for your spinach, fold it in until they’ve all wilted down about 30 seconds to a minute. It’s ready to stuff in some tortillas!
  4. Heat your tortillas either on the pan or microwave, pile this deliciousness on and top with the saucy sauce. Add any other toppings you’d like!
