Flatiron Foodies: The Little Beet's BBQ Jackfruit

The Little Beet is a fast-casual, vegetable-forward restaurant located in New York, Washington, D.C., and Miami. Their Flatiron location at 1140 Broadway (between 26th & 27th Streets) doubles as their test kitchen and is always bustling with new recipes from Executive Chef Geoff Korberg. 

Little Beet's culinary team explores alternative, plant-based proteins inspired by healthy, delicious food trends. This month's Flatiron Foodies recipe features a hot summer food trend with their signature BBQ Jackfruit.

The Little Beet's BBQ Jackfruit

  • 40 ounces canned Jackfruit, in brine (found in Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, etc.)
  • 3/4 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 cup white onion, sliced and charred
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method: In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, add jackfruit and break apart with a wooden spoon until your desired "pulled" texture is achieved. When fully heated, add BBQ sauce, black beans, and the charred onions, and cook until warm. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
