Last weekend, we hosted Los Angeles' newest all-vegan food truck, Word of Mouth. While they were in front of the store, we asked them to give us a behind-the-scenes look in the truck as they made one of their menu favorites—the BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwich.
Owners Chris + Staci happily obliged. Watch below as Chris walks up through the process of getting the perfect jackfruit, how to get your BBQ sauce as thick or thin as you like, and how he makes Word of Mouth's excellent pickled celery. Full recipe courtesy of Word of Mouth below.
