Barbecue Jackfruit Recipe

Barbecue Jackfruit


"I discovered Jackfruit as a savory component while doing some research for my vegan customers. With a growing consumer interest in plant-based healthy eating, vegetarian and vegan options, we want to create something that tastes great and has health benefits", Executive chef Alexa Lemley of Artisan Foodworks. Chef Alexa's Barbecue Jackfruit recipe has become the most popular choice if you are new to vegan or vegetarian diet.

Featured on the Food Truck Summer Special (click here to view menu)

Serves 4

·                     1 can (20 oz) Young green jackfruit in brine
·                     1 yellow onion, diced
·                     4 cloves garlic, pureed
·                     1/2 can chipotle peppers in adobo, pureed (omit if you don’t want spicy)
·                     1 tablespoon olive oil
·                     2 teaspoons kosher salt
·                     2 cup BBQ sauce (your favorite brand or homemade)
·                     1/2 cup water

1.            Drain Jackfruit! Place the jackfruit in bowl, cover it with cold water, and soak for 15 minutes. Drain, rinse, and soak again. Do this 4 times. 
2.            Heat oil in sauté pan.  Add garlic, jackfruit, chipotle peppers, and salt. Sauté on medium heat for 5 minutes or until fragrant.
3.            Add BBQ sauce and water. Put sautéed items in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, shred and enjoy! (You can’t really overcook it, so give it a full 8 hours to really develop flavors)
4.            Eat

Mexican Street Corn Salad Recipe

Mexican Street Corn Salad

One of our most popular requests from La Flama Blanca (The Flaming Food Truck)! 
Chef Alexa’s Mexican Street Corn Salad is inspired by her love of Mexican street food.


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups fresh corn kernals
1 tablespoon Kosher salt
3 tablespoons extra creamy mayonnaise
1/2 cup finely sliced scallion greens
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
4 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon hot pepper flakes
3 ounces cotija cheese

Directions
Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over high heat until shimmering. Add corn kernels and salt. Toss once or twice, and cook without moving until charred on one side (about 2 minutes). Toss corn, stir, and repeat until charred on second side (about 2 minutes more). Continue tossing and charring until well charred all over. Let cool.
Stir in mayonnaise, scallions, cilantro, jalapeño, garlic, lime juice, and hot pepper flakes. Place in a pretty dish and top with crumbled cotija. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
