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.

Canned Jackfruit: You can buy this from most supermarkets now but if not you can get it on Amazon (link is below).

Gochujang: Korean chilli paste which you can usually get in supermarkets.

Jackfruit Sauce Ingredients: Rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil go into the jackfruit to make it super flavourful.

Grain: I made these bowls with rice but you could use whatever grain you like.

Veggies: Add shredded red cabbage, avocado slices and spring onions to these bowls.

Kimchi: This adds the best funky tang to the bowls, I can’t get enough!

    I have always wanted to try jackfruit but was never quite sure what to do with it. This was a great recipe! I loved the spice of the kimchi and the creaminess of the avocado. So good!
