Vegan Pulled Pork Style Jackfruit Crescent Ring Recipe

Vegan Pulled Pork Style Jackfruit Crescent Ring

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 20 ounce can jackfruit in brine (not syrup)
  • 1/4 cup bbq sauce (I used a sweet Hawaiian BBQ sauce)
  • 1 container crescent rolls (I used Trader Joe's brand but most store brands are accidentally vegan)
  • 1 cup shredded vegan mozzarella style shreds (I used So Delicious brand)
  • 1 fresh jalapeno, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup red onion, sliced thinly
  • cilantro, to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Drain the canned jackfruit and shred the pieces with your fingers into a bowl. Discard liquid.

  3. Mix bbq sauce with shredded jackfruit in a bowl.

  4. Place a cup opening side down in the center of a baking sheet. Use the cup as a guide to create a layered circle with your unfurled crescent rolls, forming a crescent ring that looks like the sun.

  5. Place your jackfruit mixture onto the bottom overlapping section of the crescent dough.

  6. On top of the jackfruit evenly distribute the vegan cheese, red onions, and jalapeƱos.

  7. Fold the tapered edges of the crescent dough back over the filling to form a loop. Pinch the dough together so it sticks.

  8. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

  9. Top with cilantro and serve.
