Here are three more testers from Joni's new book, Vegan Fusion! This is an amazing Pull Apart Bread filled with Spicy Korean BBQ Jackfruit. I made all three recipes (the BBQ sauce, the Jackfruit and the bread itself) yesterday!

This was made from three recipes...
The Spicy Korean BBQ Sauce:
The BBQ Jackfruit Story:
This was my first time working with jackfruit, it is very hard right out of the can.
Here it is just starting to cook with the sauce, etc.
I couldn't really begin to break it up until it had been cooking a good while, though I got some of the pieces apart a little using two forks at the beginning. Next time I may chop up the jackfruit with a chef's knife before adding it to speed up cooking a bit (I was a little impatient last night, if I had more time I wouldn't have worried about it, it gets soft as it cooks).
After 45 minutes and a bit of effort (with two forks as well as cutting it up with my spatula--I wanted to make those buns!) to break apart the chunks of jackfruit, here is the finished Spicy Korean BBQ Jackfruit! It was delicious!
And, I needed a snack while I was making all this, so I put some of Joni's Sweet Chili Sauce on my tofu from the Asian Market (the homemade tofu, which is always amazing) and had it over some organic "marathon" bread from Wegmans.
A super tasty snack!! That gave me enough energy to finish the buns!
And here are pictures of the bun making and baking and eating:
This dough is so smooth and silky, a joy to work with!
