Five spice jackfruit on housemade bao buns with sweet & sour hoisin sauce, cucumber, carrots, cilantro and chopped peanuts. Served with a slaw, ginger coconut long grain rice and garlic orange broccoli.


  • 12 housemade bao buns
  • One pan jackfruit
  • 4 ounces sweet and sour hoisin sauce
  • 4 ounces chopped peanuts
  • One container julliene carrots
  • One container sliced cucumber
  • One bag cilantro 
  • One container slaw
  • 4 ounces salad dressing
  • One pan coconut long grain
  • One pan garlic orange brocolli


  • Add a couple tablespoons of water to the pan of rice then heat in the covered pan in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Brocolli can be cooked alongside rice in the oven with the pan uncovered for the last 15 minutes of cooking time. Alternatively you can put both in a microwave safe container and heat in a microwave, stirring every 60 seconds until internal temperature of 165. 
  • Jackfruit can be heated in the oven in a covered pan at the same time rice is cooking for 20 minutes or until 165 degrees. Alternatively it can be heated on the stovetop in a fry pan or in the microwave in a microwave safe dish. 
  • Warm bao buns wrapped in a towel in microwave for 30-60 seconds or until just warm.
  • Toss dressing with slaw.


  • Split rice and brocolli amongst four plates.
  • Split jackfruit on to bao buns amongst the four plates.
  • Dress the pinch buns with veggies, peanuts and hoisin sauce.
  • Place slaw in seperate plates or bowls.

Notes from Sara:

Our Pastry Chef, Katie, made up some bao buns a few months ago for a Friday Funday meal and they went over very well. We have been asked to repeat that meal more than any other we've made. We decided to mix it up a bit this time though, and feature it for a Meatless Monday Meal. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
