BBQ Pulled Hearts of Palm

BBQ Pulled Hearts of Palm/

This recipe comes together very quickly. So, if you stock your pantry with a few cans of Hearts of Palm, lunch and/or dinner can be ready in 25 minutes. I can’t believe how delicious this tastes: smoky, spicy and soo yummy. After I took this photo, I sat right down and ate the whole burger. Just like that! For large appetites (like mine) this recipe just makes enough for two. Enjoy, over and over again!


Serves 2-3

Prep time: 10 minutes     Cook Time: 15 minutes


 2  cans of 14 oz whole hearts of palm, drained & rinsed

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. smoked paprika

½ tsp. chili powder blend*

½ tsp. garlic powder

½ tsp. onion powder


  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat
  • Over a medium bowl pull apart the hearts of palm with your hands, so they look shredded and “pulled”.
  • Mix all the spices together and then pour over the hearts of palm.
  • Toss well; to make sure spices coat hearts of palm evenly.
  • Spread pulled hearts of palm in a single layer onto lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly crisp and slightly browned.
  • Use with condiments on a whole grain bun, in a wrap or on your favorite bread, or eat it as is. Enjoy!
