60g of plain soya yogurt

FOR THE SAUCE:

4. Next, rinse and drain the jackfruit. 

5. Prepare the BBQ sauce by adding all of the sauce ingredients to a saucepan of low heat for 22-25 minutes and cooking until the sauce has begun to slightly thicken. Stir the sauce throughout its cooking time to ensure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.

7. Season the cooking jackfruit with the garlic powder, salt and pepper and cook for up to 5 minutes.
