This Easy Vegan Sticky BBQ ‘Pulled Pork’ is incredible! It’s easy to make, it’s made out of vegetables and spiced like you would a pork. Can be used as taco filling, sandwiches, as side – anything you fancy. It’s gluten-free too!
Now I know you tend to see a lot of vegan recipes out there saying “Look at that fried carrots, tastes just like a hot-dog” and it normally doesn’t. Now, this is not obviously going to tastes 100% like pulled pork, but what I am trying to do is somehow replicate the tastes, using the same sauces and spices you would normally use on the pork. So it just ends up reminding you of the pulled pork, but its far from being the same.
I like trying to replicated certain meat dishes, because there are a lot of vegans out there who miss those dishes, especially the new vegans. So, it’s good in way to try to find a replicate that can satisfy the craving for this food, without dropping everything and start eating meat again.
In this recipe, ideally you would use Jackfruit – it’s incredible for reminding you of pulled pork, but I decided to try something different, less expensive.
So I simply used:
2. Red onions
No expensive stuff here, although, I would recommend using a good quality BBQ sauce – it does make a difference!
