Vegan BBQ Pulled Pork Burgers with Jack Daniels Sauce

My boyfriend and I visited a gorgeous pub recently that served the most incredible looking food from vegan burgers to proper English gluten free fish & chips and aromatic curries to pasta bakes. One thing I noticed on the menu was a Pulled Pork Burger, now of course I didn't even consider this option (being veggie!) but it caught me eye because I'd never thought to recreate this meal option Nourishing Amelia style before, until now.

This recipe for a vegan BBQ Pulled Pork Burger is absolutely the best vegan alternative ever. I used jackfruit (available in many supermarkets & health food shops) to create the pulled pork texture and flavoured it with the most amazing BBQ sauce from Jack Daniels. The flavours are irresistible, the texture is unbelievable and it's just so more-ish! I can't wait for you to recreate this meal at home yourself.

As I mentioned above, I used Jackfruit as the pulled pork substitute - it's completely vegan and gluten free! Then I used a BBQ sauce from Jack Daniels to give it a wealth of flavour. I used their Full Flavour Smokey barbecue sauce (which is vegan and suitable for coeliacs!) for extra smokiness and that gorgeous hint of J.D Tennessee Whiskey is so rich and luxurious tasting. I also found the texture of the barbecue sauce to be perfect for this recipe - sticky as BBQ sauce should be but also wonderfully smooth and heats well.

I served the BBQ pulled pork in a gluten free seeded roll with a generous dollop of coleslaw and fresh ice-berg lettuce. Perfection!
