Ingredients

Directions

For 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.
For the 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.
For 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's Notes:
  1. Honey can be used in place of pure maple syrup.
  2. Low-sodium soy sauce or liquid aminos can be used in place of tamari.
  3. Serve on a gluten-free bun or sandwich bread or turn these into lettuce wraps for a low-carb version.
  4. Toast the bread if desired.
