Vegan BBQ Pulled Pork, Refried Beans, Brown Rice, and Cabbage & Carrot Slaw🔥🔥.

I know, I know, the star is the jackfruit pulled pork with the homemade BBQ sauce.

And you can’t even tell I burned myself using a blender today! 😋😂

Sometimes there’s benefits to doing live classes, and watching a slip ups is worth the price of admission😂😂😂!

Still tasted amazing though🙌🙌.

  4. Allow to stand and cool for about 10 minutes, and then transfer to a blender.  Pulse until smooth.
