1 (10.5-ounce) can jackfruit, drained ¼ cup vegan barbecue sauce
2 teaspoons agave
4 drips liquid smoke
¼ teaspoon salt
1/4 milligram black pepper
¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/4 milligram garlic powder

1 tablespoon coconut sugar
½ teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of white vinegar 1/4 teaspoon of salt 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
How to prepare four toasted slider buns
What you must do is heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion for five minutes, or until it has softened. Add jackfruit and simmer for an additional 5 minutes, or until pieces are slightly soft. Shred the jackfruit while it cooks in the pan.
Add barbecue sauce to the skillet and toss to evenly coat the meat. Constantly whisk in agave, liquid smoke, salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, and garlic powder. Continue cooking for eight minutes, then remove from heat.
To make the slaw, combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss.
On four slider buns, divide the jackfruit and top each with an equal amount of slaw.
