  • skillet



  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Poke the sweet potatoes all over with a fork and place on a baking sheet or glass pan. Bake for 45 – 80 minutes until cooked all the way through. 
  • In a skillet, combine jackfruit, water, and buffalo sauce on med-hi until it starts to simmer, then turn to med-lo. Cook the jackfruit for about 30 minutes, stirring every 5-7 minutes to keep the mixture from sticking from the bottom. As the jackfruit continues to cook, you’ll notice it starts to break apart resembling pulled pork. You can also jab it with a fork to help it separate if you get impatient.
  • Cut the sweet potatoes open hotdog style and stuff them with jackfruit. Optionally, drizzle with Oil-Free Hemp Seed Ranch and top with scallions.
