These hot dogs are not only made from purely plant-based ingredients, but also gluten-free with corresponding gluten-free rolls, oil-free, sugar-free.
I would like to show you how you can create a real taste experience from simple ingredients such as carrots and tofu.
Let's take a look at the ingredients that go into these great vegan Chili Cheese Dogs. As always, the exact quantities can be found below in the recipe card.
Let's take a look at the ingredients for the Carrot Dogs first.
Peel half a lemon
Miso paste or yeast extract (optional)
Beetroot powder (optional)
Tomato sauce / passata
Chilli spice mix
Hot dog bun
Vegan queso sauce
Let's take a look at which ingredients you can replace.
Instead of carrots, you can also prepare super vegan hot dogs from seitan, for example. You can also buy and use vegan sausages.
If you don't want to use tofu, you can also chop mushrooms, celery and carrots in the food processor and use this as a tofu substitute.
Let's now take a look at which variants of this recipe are possible in order to adapt it to other forms of nutrition.
If you serve the Chili Dogs without the queso sauce, it is a nut-free recipe. In my queso recipe I also give examples of how you can make these nut-free.
Serve the Carrot Dogs in gluten-free rolls or between lettuce leaves to prepare it gluten-free.
To make the vegan Chili Cheese Dogs soy-free. Just leave out the miso paste.
You can also use mushrooms, lentils or vegan minced meat instead of the tofu.
Start making the carrot dogs:
Peel the carrots and cut them into hot dogs. To do this, I take the peel and peel the thick side until the carrot is equally thick at the front and back.
I use the thickest carrots I can find and match the thick side with the thin side.
Take the vegetable broth and add all the spices and heat the broth. Now add the carrots and cook the carrots in a pressure cooker for about 3 minutes.
Keep the lid closed and cook in the pot for another 20 minutes.
Cook the carrots in a normal saucepan until they are soft. To do this, prick the carrots with a knife.
You can serve the potatoes like this or you can briefly grill them in a grill pan.
Next, start with the chilli:
Press out the tofu and crumble it. Now fry the tofu vigorously in a coated pan with the chilli spice.
Now add the remaining ingredients and stir it vigorously. Taste again with the chilli spice.
While the chilli is cooking, you can prepare the queso sauce. I have a detailed post on this.
Toast the hot dog buns if necessary. Take a hot dog bun and put a carrot in it, now add the chilli and the queso sauce.
Prepare in advance
You can prepare the queso sauce, the chilli and the carrot dogs about 2 days in advance and then just warm them up.
Would you like to serve something with the vegan chili cheese hot dogs? Here I will show you a few examples of what goes well with it:
Coleslaw (red cabbage or white cabbage)
First of all, only put together the hot dogs that you want to eat.
The remaining ingredients such as chilli, queso and carrot sausages can be stored separately in airtight containers.
How to refrigerate it?
The ingredients can be kept in the refrigerator for about 5 days. So you can also prepare it as a meal prep and prepare it during the week.
How to freeze it?
You can also put the containers in the freezer and it will keep there for 2-3 months.
You can also make the carrot dogs in larger quantities and then freeze them if you have
you can have some on hand when you feel like a hot dog.
Instead of the queso sauce, you can also make the nacho cheese sauce. Both are delicious and incredibly tasty.
