Fry’s Sea Octopus Pasta with Funky Seaweed  

Recipe by Fry’s
 
Serves 2-4 
Cooking time: 40 min
 
Ingredients
For the pasta
½ box Fry’s Original Hotdogs
250g conchiglie pasta (shell shaped ) 
2 slices vegan cheese
½ cup rosa tomatoes, sliced                             
 
For the Food dye:
1 head red cabbage
¼ tsp baking soda                              
 
For the seaweed:                 
2 cups shredded red cabbage
1 cup carrots, grated
1 cup pineapple, diced
1/3 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds etc)
¼ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup vegan mayonnaise                                                     
 
Method
Cook the pasta according to the packaging instructions. Set it aside.
Slice the red cabbage into chunks.
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add the sliced cabbage in the pot and simmer for about 15 minutes.
Strain out the red cabbage (the cabbage will be used for the coleslaw).
Simmer the purple water for another 15 minutes until the consistency is becomes like syrup.
Gradually add the baking soda to turn the water from purple to blue.
Add the pasta to the blue water and allow the pasta to absorb the colour until it turns blue.
Fry the Hot Dogs up according to the box instructions. Allow to cool. Cut slits ¾ of the way up the Hot Dog to make the octopus tentacles.
Cut the vegan cheese into star shapes using a cookie cutter.
To make the coleslaw, combine all the ingredients together in a bowl, ensuring the mayo is mixed through well.
Place the pasta in bowls, with the Hot Dog Octopus on top, along with the cheese stars and tomatoes. Serve the funky seaweed coleslaw on the side.
