  • 75g vegan egg-free mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy or nut milk

  1. Make the coleslaw and refrigerate a few hours before serving your burgers. Whisk together the vegan mayonnaise, vinegar, milk and salt and pepper until it forms a smooth and creamy dressing.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the vegetables, vegan mayonnaise and dressing, tossing it all together to mix well, making sure this is evenly coated with dressing.
  3. Allow your coleslaw to chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving.
  4. Rinse, drain, and pat dry the jack fruit, chop off the core portion of the fruit and discard it.
  5. Place the remaining fruit into a mixing bowl and set aside.
  6. Mix together the spices, seasoning, garlic powder and sugar and add to the bowl of jack fruit, making sure it is thoroughly coated.
  7. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of oil and add in the jack fruit.
  8. Cook for 2-3 minutes, making sure the jack fruit has some colour.
  9. Add the barbecue sauce and a dash of water to create a sauce-like consistency.
  10. Reduce heat to low, cooking for a further 20-minutes with a lid.
  11. 10-minutes into cooking, use two forks to shred the jack fruit and keep stirring occasionally.
  12. Once the jack fruit has simmered for 20 - 25-minutes turn the heat up to medium-high for 2-minutes and then remove from heat.
  13. Place a generous portions of coleslaw on the bottom buns and top with the jack fruit mixture, adding more barbecue sauce if you like.
