Lettuce Cups with Avocado Aioli and Crunch Slaw


1 Bag Taylor Farms Coleslaw

1 head Cos Lettuce

1 Can Jackfruit

1 Large ripe avocado (for topping)

BBQ Jackfruit

1 Tbsp avocado oil or other cooking oil

1 Small yellow onion, chopped

2 Cloves garlic, minced

2 Cans young jackfruit, drained, rinsed, and pulled apart by hand (in water, not syrup)

Salt and pepper to taste

3/4 Cup of your favourite BBQ sauce (suggest one that’s not too sweet)

1/3 Cup water

Crunchy Slaw

1 bag Taylor Farms Coleslaw

1/4 cup olive or avocado oil

2–3 Tbsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, to taste lemon zest, optional

1 Tbsp coconut nectar, sugar, or other sweetener of choice generous pinch of salt and pepper

Avocado Aioli

1 large ripe avocado, peeled and pitted

1/4 cup olive or avocado oil

1 garlic clove

1/2 lemon or lime juice, use more or less to taste

2 Tbsp plain, unsweetened yogurt (can use dairy-free) or mayonnaise

Generous pinch of salt and pepper, to taste

Water, enough to thin


Pull apart cos lettuce leaves and wash well. Pat dry and set aside. Make the dressing for the slaw by combining oil, lemon juice/vinegar, zest, sweetener, salt and pepper. Mix and adjust seasonings, to taste.

Place the dry coleslaw into a large bowl and pour the dressing on top, tossing until coleslaw is evenly coated with the dressing. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Can be made up to a day ahead of time.

For the BBQ jackfruit, place a large frying pan over medium hight heat and drizzle with oil. Add chopped onion, cooking a few minutes until translucent. Add jackfruit, BBQ sauce, and water, cooking until the BBQ sauce cooks down and coats the jackfruit, about 5–8 minutes. Season BBQ with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and keep warm until ready to use.

To make the avocado aioli, place avocado, oil, garlic, lemon juice, yogurt/ mayo, and a pinch of salt and pepper into the high powered blender or food processor. Blend until creamy, then add water a little at a time, until aioli is thin enough to drizzle.

Putting lettuce wraps together: Place a generous spoonful of BBQ jackfruit onto a romaine leaf, top with slaw, slices of avocado, and avocado aioli.
