I do not know about you, but I love classic comfort recipes like these American Chili Dogs.
And since I'm married to an American (hi Schatz;) we often eat American classics like these chili cheese dogs in vegan.
And as a vegan you do not have to live without these classics. These plant based chili cheese dogs are an even healthier alternative to the classics.
And since my husband also decided to eat plant based, I do not want him to miss such recipes. And let's face it, it just tastes so good that you just cannot get enough of it.
Let us take a look into the ingredients of the vegan chili dogs. You will find the exact quantities in the recipe card below.
hot dog buns
Vegan sausages, homemade dogs or carrot dogs
Tofu or dried lentils or TVP
Tomato sauce / passata
Chili seasoning blend
Cashew nuts, raw
Plant based milk
Garlic powder, onion powder, salt
Ground meat substitute
In our case, we love variety in the kitchen. Therefore, I always try different ingredients here.
On the vegan chili cheese dog photos you can see the chili made with tofu. I think the right spice combination is the heart of every meal, how do you see that? Other times I take lentils or TVP.
Would you like to try lentils? Then try out black lentils, I find these give the whole dish, no matter this or others prepared with ground meat, an amazingly taste.
Simply cook the lentils in vegetable broth according to the instructions on the package.
Sometimes I put spices from the recipe in the cooking water. Just try how it tastes best for you.
When I use tofu I like to press it with my tofu press. And season it neatly with the spices from the recipe.
So the tofu absorbs the spices best. Try out here as you like it best. Individual tastes are known to vary.
Which hot dog for the vegan chili cheese dogs?
Again, you can take your favorite for the vegan chili cheese hot dogs. At VeEatCookBake.com you can find a delicious vegan seitan sausage recipe. If you want to prepare the recipe at short notice, then I have two options for you. You can buy a vegan sausage or you can make carrot dogs.
Are you wondering what carrot dogs are? You can easily make vegan hot dogs from carrots. Just peel the carrots and cut into length of hot dogs. For this, use thick carrots.
So you can adjust the thicker side to the thinner and they get the ideal shape for vegan hot dogs and go perfectly with the vegan chili cheese dogs.
Here I briefly describe how you prepare it: For the cooking water take 400 ml of water and season it as follows:
1 teaspoon smoked salt (½ tsp liquid smoke + 1 tsp salt)
¼ tsp garlic powder
Peel of half a lemon
¼ tsp pepper, white
½ tsp mustard
¼ tsp cilantro powder
½ teaspoon sweet pepper
¼ teaspoon nutmeg grated
¼ tsp cumin powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon miso paste or yeast extract (optional)
½ teaspoon locust bean gum
2 tablespoons tomato paste
⅛ teaspoon beetroot powder (optonal)
Cook the carrots in a pressure cooker for 3 minutes and remove the pot from the heat.
Now let the carrots in the pot with lid closed for about 20 minutes. If you do not have a pressure cooker then cook the carrots until they are tender.
Simply prick with a knife into the carrot. Would you like to read a detailed blog post about the carrot sausages?
