These BBQ jackfruit bowls are so easy to make and are full of healthy ingredients. Top with kimchi, avocado and a big drizzle of sriracha mayo for a delicious vegetarian dinner!
I am so excited about these bowls!
Building bowls like this is one of my favourite ways to eat. You start off with a grain then top it with veggies, protein and sauce of your choice until you’ve created a big bowl of deliciousness.
For this one I wanted to go with a Korean BBQ vibe but keep it vegetarian (and easily made vegan!) so I decided to make it with jackfruit and it turned out so well.
You can add pretty much any vegetables you like but I went with shredded red cabbage for plenty of crunch, creamy avocado and loads of kimchi.
I used rice as a base but you could use whatever grain you like.
Why we love these BBQ jackfruit bowls…
They’re vegetarian and are easily made vegan by switching the mayo to your favourite brand of vegan mayo.
You can easily customise these bowls to add whatever vegetables and other toppings you like! I went for red cabbage and avocado but you could use some roasted veggies or crunchy cucumber and carrots.
They’re so easy to make and the BBQ jackfruit comes together pretty quickly. You can even make it ahead for meal prep.
They make great leftovers so you can make a big batch at the beginning of the week ready for serving up everyday for lunch and dinner.
