Pulled Jackfruit in Raw BBQ Sauce with "Cheesy" Kale Salad

It is cook out season, which means watching other people eat charred meat while you eat watermelon. While watermelon is delicious, hydrating, and full of nutritional benefits, if you are like me, you want more. With this recipe the meat eaters will want to switch to what you are having!

Pulled Jackfruit in BBQ Sauce

1 can of young green jackfruit packed in water
1/2 cup of sun-dried tomatoes, soaked
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons coconut aminos
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/3 cup spring or filtered water
dash of white pepper
dash of salt

Drain jackfruit in a colander and rinse. In a medium sized bowl separate the jackfruit into strings resembling pulled pork. Some pieces around the seeds may be salvageable, but most of the seeds will need to be tossed since they are too hard. Set aside. In a food processor, combine the sun-dried tomatoes, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, coconut aminos, honey, maple syrup, paprika, chili powder, water, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Add extra water if necessary. Mix sauce together with jackfruit until evenly covered.

"Cheesy" Kale Salad

1 lage bowl of kale
2 tablespoons of hemp oil
1/2 cup of hemp milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon paprika
dash cayenne pepper
salt to taste

Rinse kale and remove leafy bits from stalks. Tear into small pieces and put in a large bowl. Add hemp oil and massage kale until the texture is closer to that of cooked kale. Add hemp milk, nutritional yeast, paprika, cayenne and salt. Mix thoroughly.
