Vegetarian Hotdogs by ‘Master Chef’ Sengpiow
I woke up this morning and guess what? Sengpiow made me vegetarian hot dogs American style! What a nice surprise! Yes the ‘meat’ is made from Vegetables!! It tastes really good…It tasted like the real thing actually better with relish, sauerkraut, mustard, ketchup, etc…it was delicious. They have non-dairy cheese too available these days. Some advice, it’s good to fry the sauerkraut up before serving but it’s good raw too. I liked the sauerkraut fried. After boiling the hot dogs, you can drain the water and further fry the hot dogs slightly up also for taste just for a few minutes. It’s very nice…add some pickles on the side and vegan chips and your good to go!
How to prepare:
1. Get hot dog buns which can be whole wheat or whatever choice of buns you like, relish (jar), mustard/ketchup (organic if you like), sauerkraut (can), vegan cheese or no cheese is ok, pickles on the side and chips. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia you can get the hot dogs from the Chinese Vegetarian shops (Nanking Court Restaurant has a vegetarian section in PJ-SS2 selling these hot dogs).
2. Boil the hot dogs for three minutes or directly fry it. Place into boiling water directly. Do not put into the water before the water boils or if overcooked can be soggy. Slice the hot dogs alittle on the surface so heat can penetrate easier. Frying is just three minutes. Again you can boil or fry them..it is up to you…up to your taste buds..experiment….try it with your friends next time you get together to watch a ball game or movie…nice surprise! If you don’t say anything, I’m sure no one would know the difference. Fun to test it out!
3. Spread the ketchup, mustard throughout the bread as much as you like. Then put the hot dog ontop. Add the relish, sauerkraut last so the bread doesn’t get wet and soggy. Soggy buns are not delicious. You can have pickles on the side or organic chips go nicely…even a salad with this…it’s a light and filling meal with no guilt….I love it…No animals are hurt.
4. Optional, you can take the sauerkraut and squeeze the water out and lightly fry it before adding to the dogs. Or it can be added straight on but MUST REMOVE THE WATER BY SQUEEZING HARD as wet hot dog buns are not fun or delicious.
Good luck and enjoy this delicious vegetarian hot dog..We can even make one and offer up on our altar for Buddha and Kuan Yin…it’s clean!
