Ingredient List

Jackfruit: 

  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil (or use a non-stick pan)
  • 1 10.6-ounce package Upton’s Naturals Original Jackfruit
  • 1/4 cup tomato puree
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp hickory liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Salad:

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil (or use a non-stick pan)
  • 1 8-ounce package Upton’s Naturals Bacon Seitan
  • 1/2 head cabbage, shredded
  • 3-4 cups salad greens
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1/3-1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4-6 tablespoons vegan ranch dressing, or to taste
  • 4-6 tablespoons barbecue sauce, or to taste
directions
Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the jackfruit, tomato puree, soy sauce, maple syrup, onion powder, liquid smoke, paprika and salt to the pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until the sauce is absorbed into, and caramelizing on the outside of the jackfruit. Set aside to cool and wipe out pan.

Heat the vegetable oil over a medium flame in the same pan you just used, and pan fry the Bacon Seitan for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and chop into small pieces. Set aside to let cool.

Combine the shredded cabbage, salad greens, shredded carrots, corn, roasted red peppers, and cooled Bacon Seitan in a large salad bowl. Add the jackfruit, breaking it into bite-size pieces. Add the chopped fresh parsley and toss to evenly distribute the ingredients.

Add the ranch dressing and barbecue sauce, and toss to coat the salad, adding more dressing or sauce if desired before serving.
