Vegan Mofo: Frankfurter and Pineapple Salad

Apologies for the late post today, I had a Mofo fail  and had to quickly whip up something else from my plan. Luckily the Daily Mail Book Of Party Time Cookery had something to offer.

I know, looks horrible doesn’t it? I had a feeling cooking from this book would only lead to badness. The Daily Mail does not know how to party or have a good time and when I was flicking through, I was genuinely surprised I didn’t come across any casual racism amongst the recipes. I decided to make the Frankfurter and Pineapple Salad because it sounded gross and I was lucky enough to have all the ingredients lying around the kitchen.

Frankfurter and Pineapple Salad
  • 220g rice
  • 1 pack Taifun tofu weiners
  • 1 small pineapple
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 pack of tempeh/faux bacon
  • french dressing
  1. Bring some water to the boil and cook the rice. Once cooked drain and run under cold water until cool.
  2. Heat some oil in the pan, chop the tempeh into bitesize pieces and fry until crisp.
  3. Slice the tofu weiners, chop the pineapple and slice the tomatoes.
  4. Put the tempeh, tofu weiners, pineapple and tomatoes into a large bowl
  5. Stir through the rice and splash on a generous amount of french dressing and give it a good mix
Serves 6

This salad just reminds me of some of the weird meals I came up with when I was at uni and didn’t have much money or motivation. It wasn’t exactly disgusting but it definitely wasn’t exciting either. I did like the fried tempeh, that was nice. I don’t have tempeh often so it was good to include that for the ‘bacon’ flavour the recipe called for. I’m really not a fan of fruit in savoury stuff though so I did not like the pineapple in this at all.
Unfortunately I made the full amount, so it looks like I’ll be eating this boring, weird, fruity salad for the next 5 days. Boo!
Anyone wanna come over for lunch?!
Whilst crying over my horrible salad, I came across this great recipe for Cauliflower ‘Fish’ n Chips by Soy Division. It looks ace and definitely something I’ll be trying when I can eat normal food again!

  1. I had really hoped you would like this because I have bought hot dogs and trying to organise myself to eat them in bread rolls but I think I would have more luck of making salad. Well I guess that is what you get for doing a Daily Mail recipes – ha ha! Seriously, hope you have some nice stuff and you can just eat this salad on the side


  2. I kind of want to try this. I like the idea of tempeh bacon, sausages and pineapple… but add in some black olives and some cheese…
    Actually, I just really want a Hawaiian pizza, which is what some of the ingredients in this recipe are making me think about. LOL
