Organic BBQ Jackfruit Sliders

We'd go as far to say that these Jackfruit Sliders are a grand slam of plant based flavour.

They are 100% vegan but you wouldn't know unless we told you because they are meaty, juicy, smoky, and slightly spicy like most carnivorous dishes. With just one skillet to cook with, this dish is easy to make and even easier to clean. 

This Meal Kit comes with everything you need to make a healthy #glutenfree, #nutfree, and #vegan meal for 2 people! This recipe uses organically grown and locally sourced produce. We assume you have basic kitchen tools, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Please note that allergy preferences and substitutions cannot be accommodated.
