The Challenge: Hot Dogs

Happy Labor Day!

Today, we are releasing vegan hot dogssss! The all-american classic that is about as far from vegan as possible. But, we're going to change that today. This vegan hot dog recipe I first featured as part of pigs in a blanket. Now, we are modifying the recipe some and improving it to make it way better and normal "hot dogs."

If you are grilling out or have a summer event / fall event - this is the perfect recipe. Made using wheat gluten + oats as the base, we mix in a ton of great spices / give you a perfect cooking method to make it juicy and moist. Then, you can put any of your favorite toppings on it to make it the perfect vegan dog. Yum! Yum! Yum!

Unlike other recipes you may have seen, we won't be baking our seitan dogs ... that will dry them out! We want to steam them to make them super moist and yummy. You'll love this recipe, and it will be the perfect addition to your recipe box! Smothered in mustard / ketchup / relish / pickles / whatever you want. These are the prefect doggg dawg.

Its an easy process of blending together all the ingredients. Kneading with wheat gluten + oats. Then, we steam the dogs in foil for 45-50 minutes. Voila! Its that easy.

Let's get into it!
