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….advice, it’s good to fry the sauerkraut up before serving but it’s good raw also…After boiling the hot dogs, you can drain the water and fry the hot dogs slightly up also for taste..it’s very nice…add some pickles on the side and vegan chips and your good to go…Tsem Rinpoche

 

How to make:

1. Get hot dog buns can be wholewheat, relish (jar), mustard/ketchup (organic if you like), sauerkraut (can), vegan cheese or no cheese are ok, pickles on the side and chips, from Chinese Vegetarian shops you can get hot dogs (Nanking Court Restaurant has a veg store in PJ-SS2 selling these hot dogs…).

2. Boil the hot dogs for 3 mins or directly fry. 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 go in easier.. Frying is just 3 mins…Again you can boil it or fry it..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 dvd movie…nice surprise..

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 dog 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…

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..again up to your tastes..but MUST REMOVE THE WATER BY SQUEEZING HARD…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..

    wow, that looks delicious. i am craving now… it looks sooooo goooood! i am so hungry now because of looking at this picture. uncle SengPiow is so nice and caring, maybe one day he can make this for me… hehe.

  2. pavara on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    yum these hot dogs looks delicious.its so amazing that uncle seng piow can cook nice hot dogs.i would like to learn how to make these hot dog sausages one day.

  3. beatrix ooi on Jan 17, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    They sure look yummy! I didn’t know Uncle Seng Piow could do this. He must have put in a lot of efforts to make this. It makes me hungry by looking at the picture..hehe..
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  4. Jutika on Jan 17, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Yum yum! These hot dogs that Seng Piow has cooked looks very yummy!!! I wish i could make some too! It is just amazing to know how to learn how to cook these wonderful Hot Dogs.

    The sausages that Seng Piow used to make his hot dogs are also most likely to be sold in Mustafa as well. Rinpoche might want to try and get it there if you every run out! Hopefully more of this kind of foods that contains meat would also have a vegetarian version so that people who are just to addicted to meat can enjoy the taste of meat and at the same time be vegetarian.

    Thank you for sharing Seng Piow’s talent of making yummy Hot Dogs!

  5. Sean Wang on Jan 17, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Wow! These hotdogs look amazing. Seng Piow is really a Masterchef! I would love to cook this dish for Rinpoche. I eat vegetarian hotdogs on a biweekly basis. They taste like real hot dogs but they are more healthier and not just filled to the brim with preservatives. FUN FACT: Sausages are actually made from the meat that does not pass the quality test but are still okay to be eaten. The meat used in sausages are meat from places of the animals like the internal organs, throats and testicles.

  6. Julien Roth on Jan 15, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    OMG!! im so hungry now. I would love to have one of those. Its amazing to wake up in the morning and have such an amazing dish just like this one. I wanna try!!! The picture of it is just so tempting. Im gonna try to make this in my spare time. Thank you for sharing the recipe. And i hope that many people follow this, and eventually become vegetarian.

  7. edward ooi on Jan 10, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I didn’t know that Sengpiow can make such a delicious looking vegetarian hot dog. One day, I will try to make hotdogs with my friends. You don’t have to put meat make it taste better just like Rinpoche said It tastes really good…It tasted like the real thing. And Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these ingredients to all of us. Thank you for reading

  8. bengkooi on Sep 22, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    These hotdogs look almost as good as the real thing, but without the killing and suffering. I have had the privilege to taste these hotdogs a couple of times, courtesy of Chef SP and sometimes Chef KB.. and they are delish!

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us how easy it is to change from a meat to meat free diet. For showing us that we cannot say that we cannot not be vegetarian because it is inconvenient, because we are attached to meat, because the veg diet is not nutritious… etc etc etc. In so many of Rinpoche’s blog posts, we see again and again how much variety there is in a vegetarian diet, how nutritious it is, how it helps our health etc etc etc

    I hope everyone else gets the message too and makes a difference to the animal suffering in the world today

  9. Lily on Mar 17, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche on posting up all the vegetarian recipes on the blog. I am taking inspirations from them to cook up these dishes for the family.

  10. tsemtulku on Mar 17, 2011 at 3:26 am

    In everything we do, there is positive and negative effects due to the nature of our existence. It is 100% correct you don’t eat meat. HH the Dalai Lama, the highest authority within Tibetan Buddhism recommends we do not eat meat, so that is all we need to remember. Buddha said, we should not lie, or get attached to drinking, singing, dancing, intimacies,entertainments and that we should spend our energies to become enlightened. Are we doing all die and not just the meat part?? People tend to pick what is convenient from the Buddha’s teachings to suit themselves. If we are going to follow Buddha’s teachings or quote, we may ask are you following everything Buddha says? If you are not, then rejoice when others follow the best they can and as much as they can. Since it is the right path for 21st century Buddhists to follow the no meat path, let’s do it. We have so much variety of food. Let’s eat the no meat diet and get on with our practice and basically compassionately go passed the criticisms. It is very simple, do not kill. So hence animals will not die in front of you to eat them…There is no good karma in eating meat..full stop, but definitely there is good karma refraining from eat. Many of the tantras when engaged in the practice prohibit meat as taught by Vajradhara. Many rituals we do in the great Monasteries prohibit meat so the rituals are more effective…..Many who are not monks or not living in the monasteries would never understand that. Reading from books, net or from dharma centres would never be the same as in the monastery. Again, eating meat does not gather good merits for our spiritual practice, avoiding does. Listen to some of wonderful Tenzin Palmo’s views on not eating meat. She is the great yogini who meditated for the longest time in the mountains.TR

    Om nom nom yumyummy I’m so jealous. No one cooks for me anymore except the fast food place

  12. patsy on Mar 15, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Yum Yum, the hot dogs look nice and tasty. Didnt know that Seng Piow can cook too…. A computer wizard turned Master Chef!!!

  13. Sean Wang on Mar 14, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    Wow! The sausages look tasty. I have got to try to make them some day. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, Rinpoche. Now, I have more and more choices of food to make to bring to school to eat. It looks extremely tasty. Now, there is more of a variety of vegetarian food that everyone can enjoy. YAY!

  14. Anila on Mar 13, 2011 at 5:38 pm

    Yes, that’s right. Western food are much easier to prepare especially hotdogs whether they are hotdogs prepared with meat or with vegetables. Seng Piow has turned from operating the computor to being a Master Chef making burgers and hotdogs for Rinpoche. Very soon he will be specialising into something else too. Since Rinpoche is brought up with an American diet Seng Piow will not have a problem with making meals for Rinpoche. I would like to try to make this hot dog for myself except I have to minus the tomato sauce and the pickles. Thank you Rinpoche for putting the Recipe of Seng Piow hot dog on your blog.

  15. tsemtulku on Mar 13, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I don’t like the taste and texture of meat at all…It makes me sick to my stomach. Unfortunately many out there who are trying to kick the meat habit, need to come off their addictions slowly, so let’s be skillful with them and offer them …something that taste like meat but is not FOR NOW..Let them be weaned off slowly….also most of these meat ‘substitutes’ do not taste like meat to me at all, or else I could not eat it. Whether we stop meat eating for altruistic, environmental, health reasons is up to us, but leave the reasons open so more can participate in this movement. Leave all options and all motivations open and not restricted..our goal is a meat free diet, how we get there is not so important at this time….

  16. Josh Akers on Mar 13, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Thank you, Your Eminence that clears up a lot of questions and will save me from perhaps even arguments in the future… I have to be very nice to people and treat them the same even if they eat meat.

    Weaning myself off meat is how I succeeded so I agree with the method for people like me, who just ‘could not’ quit at first.

  17. Shirley Maya Tan on Mar 13, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    Wow…they look great! Very impressive that Seng Piow knows how to cook too!

    I definitely want to learn along with KC staff, then I can also cook and volunteer at KC, serving customers veggie hot dogs!

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche!

    This year I have contemplated even deeper and more stronger on the non-reliance toward beings/phenomena and karma in samsara. What does that mean? It means nothing that is based on karma is reliable. So don’t force karma to be the way you want it to be as it’s not possible. If we keep believing beings/phenomena are reliable, then we will suffer the outcome when the truth of this nature shows up again and again. Due to this, my faith and refuge in Buddha is even stronger and firmer. I only take refuge in Him and Enlightened beings as their actions/motivations can not be controlled by karma and therefore not subject to impermanence. Realizing all beings, their environments and all phenomena arises from and is controlled by karma, I trust nothing and hence develop more renunciation. Nothing that is impermanent can be relied on and if we rely on them, then our samsara will not end soon. Tsem Rinpoche

    When we do research into our minds and the minds of others, we find we need love, respect and a sense of purpose. The purpose must be broad. Then we find we have lived our lives in the truest sense of living. Tsem Rinpoche

    When our bodies break down or become sick, we know it is teaching us that it does not belong to us truly and it will degenerate further and it is something borrowed. So while we have it, how much we take care of it, in the end it will have to be abandoned. It’s like putting all our investments into a hotel room we have to vacate soon. Why invest in a room we don’t own? With this temporary body, we should use it to have spiritual developments. The body is a method and not an end in itself. This is most important. Without those developments we are always going to be not ready for the inevitable loss of our body in the end. Tsem Rinpoche

    Every morning it would be wonderful to start the day by reciting Tsongkapa’s holy and sacred Migtseyma mantra at least 21 times minimum. This will bless our day. Take refuge in Lord Tsongkapa who became fully enlightened and was predicted by Lord Buddha Shakyamuni Himself. While reciting think of how we can let go of anger and be kind to all that day. To see, hear and contemplate on Lord Tsongkapa a Tri-Cosmic Buddha earns one great waves of merit propelling the practitioner closer to their final goal of liberation. Homage to Tsongkapa whose body, speech and mind are worthy of respect and refuge. Tsem Rinpoche

    I guess my one wish now is to establish Kechara Forest Retreat to be a dharma learning centre. Where we have learned sangha who will teach philosophy, rituals, pujas, special rites to live there. I wish to produce among my friends and students dharma meditation teachers, people engaged in retreats and practice intense. I wish to have many local sangha there doing dharma work, learning and benefitting the public. I wish this place to have special emphasis on Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s texts, Vajra Yogini’s tantra, Nagarjuna’s texts, Manjushri, Tsongkapa and Dorje Shugden. To be a premiere place of learning of these subjects and practice. This is my goal. So it produces teachers and practitioners to benefit others. I wish to achieve this once phase two of the building is complete. Tsem Rinpoche

    One of the favorite places I liked to visit was Kathmandu last time. I liked the four holy Vajra Yogini temples in the vicinity. Many of these holy places are not far from Kathmandu. I’ve always had wishes to live in the mountains surrounding Kathmandu. Offering items, spiritual wares, incense, juniper, ghee and whatever is necessary is so easy to obtain. I love making butterlamp offerings daily. Everywhere you look are stupas and reminders of the enlightened mind with temples, statues and holy places. I would have loved to live in the mountains there. When I consulted with my protector via the oracle, he told me not to stay there. I guess I can see why now. But I still long for those mountains very much. Tsem Rinpoche

    When we do our sadhanas and meditations on our Yidams daily and consistently, we collect much merit to overcome life’s vicissitudes. We also sharpen our mind and keep our minds focused. It is very important to do our sadhanas to our Yidams daily without a miss. This should be our daily priority. More than anything else as this prepares for today, tomorrow and the hereafter.

What Am I Writing Now


 

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.
