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

    The best anyone can do if not enlightenment for now, is to gain mastery over taking rebirth coupled with developing Three Principle Paths. Where you want to take rebirth can be determined by yourself if you practice the sacred Vajra Yogini Tantra thoroughly.

May you be blessed. May you be protected by the mystical, magical, peaceful, wrathful and secret emanations of Lord Manjushri until enlightenment.

    Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains – drima to enlightenment.

    Reincarnation forms the basis of Buddhism. It is the pillar of belief which gives rise to the cause and effect way of living or karma. Reincarnation has been followed not only by Buddhism but by the one billion Hindus currently and also in the past many religions including Christianity.

    From time to time we come across some very special people who have many huge challenges in life. I’ve not met him or had the pleasure to inquire further, but the documentary is touching. Whatever they wish to do, their surroundings are not easy or conducive. But they don’t give up. They don’t just say it’s too hard. They continue and persevere and then they succeed under the most trying circumstances.

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for your extensive works for living beings. Beautiful.

    I’ve just completed notes from an oral commentary on Samayavajra I received from the attendant to the late Trijang Dorjechang, Gelong Losang Choepel, and searching images found a link to your Samayavajra Puja page where you offer to perform various pujas for others.

    I’ve completed this preliminary many times, practice it daily within Lama Chopa, and was surprised and curious to see your mention of it as it is generally not talked about much…hence my request and receiving the commentary from Gen-la.

    I see mention on your page of a small and medium sized puja. Does this mean you have short and long sadhanas of Samayavajra, or is this referring to the length of the puja performed for others? Having a special connection, I am interested in any information or other sadhanas about this Guru-Deity. I use the sadhana included in Guide to Dakini Land, with slight augmentation based on Gen-la’s commentary.

    Thanks again.

    Yours,
    james

    The secret of a Master. ….. There was a silence. Then he said in a soft, almost shy voice, “You see, I don’t mind what happens”.

    I don’t mind what happens. That is the essence of inner freedom. It is a timeless spiritual truth: release attachment to outcomes, and deep inside oneself – one will feel good no matter what. One will feel good because one is connected to, one with, the energy of the universe, the beauty and power of creation itself.

    Or as the Master put it: “‘When you live with this awareness, this sensitivity, life has an astonishing way of taking care of you. Then there is no problem of security, of what people say or do not say, and that is the beauty of life.’

    do not say sweet things to someone for benefit

    Where we live it is as if through our understanding of indigenous voice
    and vision and the nasty way the english stole the country away from the indigenous ones that time is near where we can ask everyone to not visit here and let this island repair itself

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

This person in the picture with me is a very humble, kind and knowledgable senior monk. I have the great merits to be considered his friend. He has been very kind to me on many occasions. I have the deepest respects for him and he has been serving others for nearly 40 years as the personal authorized oracle of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Setrap, Shidak Gyenze. He was trained up as a monk oracle by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He is fully qualified and benefits many with his oracular abilities. You can see him here in full trance in the monastery with hundreds of monks and people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xbghs-mdNc I thank Dorje Shugden for appearing in oracles to speak to us and I thank this oracle monk for his services.

How fortunate to meet these holy and erudite beings. To be in the presence of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is result of merits. To be student of erudite Geshe Kelsang is fortunate. Respects to them. 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

    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
    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

    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
