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…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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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….

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!!!

  7. terri on Mar 16, 2011 at 5:48 pm

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

  8. 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

    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. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

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

  17. Lucas Roth on Feb 16, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    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.

    I used to get upset and angry when my expectations were not met, but having learned the dharma, I have learned to control my anger and impatience. Anger is not pleasant and due to my selfishness I have hurt others.

    What is interesting is His Holiness the Dalai Lama is considered as the incarnation of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, therefore a highly realized and attained being. Whether the Dalai Lama is 10 years old or 70 years old, his mindstream is the same and attained. Attainments cannot go backwards and at any age or any lifetime (incarnation) as he is highly attained. If this is the case when His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed the prayer to Dorje Shugden years ago, his mindstream was the same mindstream as now. So how can he make a mistake that back then he saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being and now he doesn’t? I don’t mean disrespect to His Holiness the Dalai Lama with this, but examining the situation only.

    The Dalai Lama is one of the people who recognized my incarnation line as well as the abbot of Gaden Shartse. If I am a fake Tulku, then Dalai Lama is wrong?…….

    I am not a fanatic , I am very open mind , was in a budist group for a few years , but felt betrayed , because I had a lot of faith and afther years pased by , I realized that the group was more like the lamas bussines than a genuine intention to teach dharma , and he also teached some practices that do not exist in the tibetan tradition and presented them as buddist practice , so it is very sad to be lyed and abused money wise by some one that you had a lot of faith and love.

    Any way , I notice that you use the Dalai Lamas Autority to sustain your
    tulku title ( in that sence he ir write ) , but , he has no Autority over budist practice , sugden in this case.

    Today we met an ambassador of a Asian nation in his embassy. We presented Dorje Shugden statue and a printed Dorje Shugden thangka framed for his office. He was very happy with the gifts and thanks us profusely. He wants to meet up with us again after the next few weeks as there are dignitaries visiting and he will be pre-occupied with them. He told us he will place Dorje Shugden’s priceless statue in his office along with the framed picture. He told us he would like Dorje Shugden introduced to more of his countrymen. We will help in that. Nice. Tsem Rinpoche

    When you have something very helpful and excellent in your life that has benefitted you, naturally you want to share with others. Well that is how I feel. During the Lunar New Year’s we go travel the various parts of the city to distribute some love, blessings and protection. See the sample of what we have been distributing in the hundreds. We will continue and do more. Many contact us to sponsor these to be printed and framed and we are grateful for their contributions. Many wish to contribute because they see how it has helped them too. Many thank us for receiving this into their lives and blessed. I really enjoy being beneficial to others.

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.

His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche Losang Choky Gyeltsen predicted that when after Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen entered into clear light, he took rebirth as Kangxi Emperor of China. Kangxi help to build the great Ganden Sumtseling Monastery and the famous Amarbayasgalant Monastery for Zanabazar Rinpoche, the head lama of Mongolia. He was known to be kind and practiced dharma and benevolent to many other religions. Tsem Rinpoche

Ganden Sumtseling Monastery in Yunnan is beautiful surrounded by mountains. This monastery is known as 'Little Potala" because it resembles the potala in Lhasa. This place was built by the 5th Dalai Lama and financed by the Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi would visit often to oversee the construction which is very unusual. Kangxi was one of Dorje Shugden's previous incarnations. This is one of the earliest monasteries to adopt Dorje Shugden's practice. Also the in their chapel is where the famous sword bent by the previous oracle in trance of Shugden is kept. Highly blessed. Tsem Rinpoche (read more.

Would love to have some really authentic Tibetan food. I have ppl who can cook one or two dishes here, but nothing like the whole authentic spread. Kalmuck food too-it would be nice to have. Kalmuck (Mongol) and Tibetan food have similarities.. For the last 20 years Losar or Tsagan is something I am on my own always. There are no Tibetans or Kalmucks around for hundreds if not thousands of miles. I am always alone. As you know I am half Tibetan and half Kalmuck in heritage.Though the beautiful Chinese people where I am celebrate the Lunar New Year, it's done differently. I am not lonely or 'desperate' for Mongol or Tibetan food/culture, but it would be nice to be around it a little after so long of being on my own. Tsem Rinpoche

  • Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    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.

    Socialite becomes a volunteer in Malaysian soup kitchen
    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    They pump 'things' into poultry to make it look plump and bigger to attract you to buy. Then you eat whatever they've pumped and think how it builds up in your body? Is your taste buds worth it to risk your health? Tsem Rinpoche

    Look at this 2 minute video, while Hong Kong is having massive protests,right over the skyline of a city a UFO is spotted observing.. Incredible footage. UFO's are historically said to always gather where there is massive conflicts or congregations of people for hundreds of years.

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    The appreciation shown here is so deep and touching.
    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche
