Vegan Pulled Pork Sandwich


This plant-based pulled pork dish is out of this world. Jackfruit is the star of this recipe and you will be amazed how meat-like this miracle fruit actually is. When cooked, it easily shreds and gets a stringy texture, just like the one of pulled pork. Combined with some creamy vegan cheese sauce and some fresh & crunchy coleslaw, it is simply divine!
