Charcoal Bao Buns with Pulled Jackfruit

Created in collaboration with Healthy Luxe, these homemade charcoal buns are made using organic spelt flour, and we've used a combination of black tahini and activated charcoal to create the colour! Thanks to its powerful toxin-clearing properties, activated charcoal may be able to assist kidney function by filtering out undigested toxins and drugs.

For the pulled jackfruit filling, we have used Amazonia's Tender Jack, a tasty vegan option that could replace pulled pork or shredded chicken in savoury meals. For this Asian-inspired recipe, we've chosen the delicious pre-marinated Teriyaki flavour. All you have to do is heat it up in a pan for 5-10 minutes and add it to your bao buns with your choice of vegetable fillings. We recommend cabbage, carrot and sprouts – but you can customise them however you like!
