These BBQ pulled pineapple lettuce wraps are not some kind of practical joke! Pineapple can be turned into “shreds” in a similar way to jackfruit, and its natural sweetness makes it a great vehicle for a healthier barbecue sauce flavor profile. These wraps are flavor bombs that are tangy, sweet, smoky, and nutritious too!
You may have noticed I haven’t posted a new recipe in a while… I listened to a rather compelling podcast about digital minimalism and started to worry about my technology habits. I deleted most apps (including Instagram and Facebook) from my phone, tried to limit my computer usage to certain times of day.
Honestly I feel happier! But, it’s hard to keep up with the blog when I’m not online, plus my day job has been quite busy. (In between testing vegan cakes 14 billion times, I still have a 9-5 as a software engineer). Still figuring out my ideal balance, a perpetual work-in-progress!
I made these lettuce wraps back in July during my WFPB/oil-free/sugar-free month. I would have given a lot of side eye in the past to the idea of a BBQ dish with no added sugar*, but this BBQ pulled pineapple is seriously ridiculous. The natural sweetness and juices from the pineapple do the trick, and everything else was already in my pantry.
