Vegan BBQ Jackfruit Grilled Cheese Sandwich


  • 1 can young jackfruit. I got mine from Trader Joe’s. (Drained and patted dry)
  • 3 tbsp of avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 salt
  • 4 tbsp of good quality BBQ sauce
  • 2 cups of spinach blanched
  • 4 sliced of multi grain bread or whole wheat bread
  • 8 slices of daiyafoods cheese
  • 1 tbsp of earthbalance buttery spread


In a sauté pan, brown the jackfruit with some avocado oil. Use your fork or a spatula to break the jackfruit so it looks like shredded meat. Add the paprika and onion powder. Sauté until nice and brown. Add the bbq sauce and let is simmer for 5 min. Meanwhile blanch the spinach and set it aside. Make sure spinach is not too wet. Drain well and dry it. Meanwhile take 4 slices of bread and assemble with 2 slices of vegan cheese on the bottom, then layer it with spinach, bbq jackfruit and two more slices of cheese then put the second slice of bread on top. Repeat the process with the second sandwich. In a sauté pan, melt the vegan butter and grill the sandwiches over a medium heat on both sides pressing it on top. You can also use a panini maker. Serve the grilled cheese sandwiches with baked fries.
