BBQ Sauce with or without Jackfruit

BBQ Sauce with or without Jackfruit

Jack fruit is a growing trend in the plant based world and if you have ever had it at a restaurant you know how good it can be.  So I have created a recipe so you can bring this amazing taste into your home and enjoy without having to eat out.  Not into Jack fruit? That’s fine! This recipe is also good to just have on its own as a barbecue sauce to spread on burgers or wraps or even add it to a bean or rice dish.

BBQ Sauce for Jack fruit

  • 56 ml can of organic tomato paste
  • 5 dates
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp pepper


Add all ingredients into a food processor or high speed blender and blend until smooth.

This sauce can be used on its own as a dip or spread.  Or you can mix it with a can of drained jackfruit (in water not juice)and sauté it, once it is warmed up you can add it to top off a salad, burrito bowl, have it with other ingredients in a wrap, or made into a burger.   You can store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.  This sauce also freezes nicely so you can freeze the leftover sauce and pull it out when you need to use it again.
