Ingredients

Directions

    To Make the Cabbage Slaw:
    1. In a large bowl, stir all slaw ingredients, except the salt, together. Season with sea salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

    To Make the Smoky Jackfruit:
    1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat tamari, tahini, pure maple syrup, molasses, cider vinegar, liquid smoke, black pepper and sea salt, whisking occasionally, until mixture comes to a gentle boil.

    2. Add jackfruit and continue cooking until much of the liquid has burned off and jackfruit is well-coated and hot.

    To Make the Sandwiches:
    1. In a skillet, add olive oil and sauté kale over medium heat for about 2 to 4 minutes, until wilted and soft.
    2. Load desired amount of sautéed kale, smoky jackfruit, and cabbage slaw on the sandwich rolls. Serve and enjoy!

     

    CHEF TIPS:

    Use honey in place of pure maple syrup.
    Use low-sodium soy sauce or liquid aminos in place of tamari.
    Serve on a gluten-free bun or sandwich bread or turn these into lettuce wraps for a low-carb version.
    Toast the bread if desired.
