These pulled jackfruit bao buns are really easy to make in less than 30 minutes! The vegan recipe makes the most of beautifully seasoned pulled jackfruit nestled in fluffy bao buns topped with quick pickled onions.
Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, then add the onions and garlic and cook until soft - about 4 minutes.
Stir in the ketchup, vinegar and spices.
Add the drained jackfruit and simmer for 20 minutes, gradually pulling the jackfruit apart with tongs or two forks. When it's ready, stir in the marmite (if using) and soy sauce. Taste and add more cayenne if desired. Set aside.
Meanwhile, make the pickled onions by placing the onion, vinegar, water, sugar and salt in a pan and bring to the boil. Take off the heat and allow to cool.
Steam or microwave the bao buns (or slice burger buns in half and lightly char them on a grill). Fill with the pulled jackfruit, pickled onions, cucumber, cabbage and a dollop of vegan mayonnaise.
