Ingredients

  • 8 chicory leaves (Tip: carefully cut a slither from the bottom of each chicory leaf. That way the ‘boats’ won’t go wobbling around the plate!)
  • 150g/5oz thawed chicken-style pieces (e.g. Fry’s chicken strips)
  • 70g/2½oz canned mandarin pieces, quartered
  • 70g/2½oz fresh pineapple, cut into small chunks
  • 4 tbsp dairy-free mayonnaise
  • 4 tbsp dairy-free yoghurt
  • 1 spring onion, very finely chopped
  • ½ tsp of paprika
  • ½ tsp of onion salt
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cress for decoration
  • Rocket leaves for serving (optional)

Instructions

1. Blend the mayonnaise with the yoghurt, spring onion, paprika and onion salt.

2. Cut the mock chicken into small bite-sized pieces.

3. Add the mandarin segments and pineapple.

4. Combine with the mayonnaise dressing and season to taste.

5. Divide between the chicory leaves and sprinkle some cress over the top. Garnish serving plate(s) with rocket if using.

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding.
