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
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..
