I still remember the taste of hot dogs. I grew up with them, loaded with sauce and cole slaw. Well, actually cole slaw on hot dogs didn’t come until much later. So, I wanted to re-invent it vegan style, right down to the sauce. I finally came up with something, which my husband agrees as I do, is much better. Neither one of us could handle the meat taste anymore.
Soy Chirzo was something we discovered quite by accident at Trader Joe’s. My husband wanted to try it because other people seemed to be swooping them up. When I tried to use it, it just crumbled. Idea! Add a little water and heat it up to make hot dog sauce. Very easy.
I use Smart Dogs for the wieners. Just cook them on the stove top. A little oil might be necessary. I just brown them on a cast iron griddle.
My cole slaw is simple – shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, mixed with Follow Your Heart Original Vegenaise Dressing and Sandwich Spread.
Mustard – Trader Joe’s Organic Yellow Mustard
Relish – Trader Joe’s Organic Sweet Pickle Relish
The buns I found were also organic – Rudi’s, however, I don’t want to recommend them since every time we’ve purchased them they have been stale. Perhaps we just always bought them at bad times, but after three times I question this. So, I’m on the lookout for something better in the bun department. I’ve also tried their hamburger buns – also stale tasting.
