What Is A Vegan Burger Made Out Of?

  • 1 can (20 oz) young green jackfruit in water or brine, drained and rinsed

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

  • 4 whole-grain burger buns

  • 1 cup shredded lettuce

  • 1 ripe tomato, sliced

  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to your spice preference)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

How To Make Independence Day Vegan Burger?

  • Prepare the Jackfruit: To make the Independence Day vegan burger, the first thing that you’ll need to do is to prepare the jackfruit. Using your hands or a fork, shred the jackfruit to resemble pulled pork. Remove any seeds or hard pieces.
  • Season the Jackfruit: In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and shredded jackfruit. Sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat the jackfruit with the spices.
  • Cook the Jackfruit: Cook the seasoned jackfruit for about 5 minutes until it begins to brown slightly.
  • Add Barbecue Sauce: Pour the barbecue sauce over the jackfruit and stir until all the pieces are evenly coated. Let it simmer for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  • Toast the Burger Buns: While the jackfruit is simmering, lightly toast the burger buns on the grill or in a toaster.
  • Assemble the Burgers: Start with a handful of shredded lettuce on the bottom half of each bun. Add a generous portion of the BBQ jackfruit on top of the lettuce. Top the jackfruit with sliced tomatoes and red onions. Optionally, add pickles for extra tanginess. Serve and Enjoy.
