  • 2 cans young jackfruit (in brine)
  • 4 tbso spicey bbq sauce
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp hot pepper flakes (or more to taste)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 can diced stewed tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Few drops liquid smoke
  • 1/2 package tofu (crumbled), optional

Put all ingredients in a slow cooker and place on low for 4 hours, or high for 2.  Once it is done cooking, shred the jackfruit with 2 forks.  Want to have it in a taco?  Preheat the oven to 300 degrees (I did this in the toaster oven).  Taking a soft tortilla, and place in the oven over two rungs of the rack, allowing the ends of the tortilla to hang down.  Allow this to cook for about 8 minutes or until slightly browned. Enjoy!
