Fresh Recipe: BBQ Jackfruit Sliders

Jackfruit is an exotic fruit grown in tropical regions of the world and a great vegan meat substitute.  It contains some of almost every vitamin and mineral that you need, as well as a decent amount of fiber and shown to help fight cancer.  Jackfruit is also shown to help control blood sugar which is why this SUPERFOOD is my Fresh Pick for this week’s Fresh Tip Tuesday.  I made a version of this BBQ Jackfruit Sliders – IE the BBQ Chicken Sliders – in the pressure cooker on WBTV and it had rave reviews.

Try it out and let me know what you think 🙂
