Peach Bbq Carrot Sliders
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
While I never was a bbq person, I love a good smokey sauce and grilling all my veggies!
Although jackfruit bbq concepts are in abundance, do you know how hard it is to locate jackfruit? HARD.
Even as an NYC gal, I saw it in Chinatown perhaps only a few times. That speaks volumes about its accessibility as this city is viewed as the epicenter of food. .
Fast forward to today, I was going to actually order it online, but even that is expensive, and not practical for anyone and the cans were even all said to be dented.
So what’s another great option?! Carrots!
Believe it or not carrots take on the texture of bbq when roasted and coated in sauce!
What do I love about this recipe? Just about.. everything! its sweet, savory, effortless, affordable, packs nutrients, aesthetic appeal, multiple textures, and is just an all around game changer!
If you’re looking to experience a vegan bbq option without having to order an overpriced can of jackfruit or consuming a vegan “food product”..
