BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Crostini

Appetizers are our jam at Two Market Girls. Smaller portions of bigger type meals so that you can taste an array of different flavours is the best. That’s why when New Year’s Eve rolls around we like to opt for appetizers versus meals. This warming and rustic appetizer is essentially a mini pulled jack fruit sandwich. Basically it’s the best.



The sweet BBQ sauce paired with the acidity in the vinegar pairs perfectly and all on top of a crunchy crostini, basically makes this the best thing ever. Anything on a crostini is pretty damn delicious.


For those that have never had jackfruit before, you truly do not know what you are missing! You will never believe that what you are eating is actually Β a fruit! This is a great recipe to trick all of your omnivore friends and family.
