Make Vegan Hot Dogs: What Ingredients Do You Need?

Simple, minimally-ingredient recipes are always a hit.  Although this isn’t a difficult recipe, it does have a few ingredients that are a bit longer than usual.  

We genuinely believe that each ingredient is essential for making a delicious vegan hot dog recipe. Below are the whole ingredients and amounts.

The ingredients that you need for this recipe are: 

  • Carrot
  • Lemon juice 
  • Spinach
  • Dried lentils
  • Garlic
  • vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • Liquid smoke
  • Vegetable broth
  • Dried Marjoram
  • Nutmeg
  • Mustard powder
  • Red onion 
  • Smoke Paprika
  • Celery Salt
  • Tomato paste
  • Italian seasoning
  • Black Pepper
  • Oat flour
  • Ground flaxseed
  • Cumin

There are quite a few ingredients in this list.  The majority of them are spices though, so it’s easy to see that there aren’t many ingredients that are difficult to work with. 

How Do You Make Vegan Hot Dogs

Vegetarian hot dogs are not difficult to make overall, but there are a few moving parts. 

Your first step is to boil the lentils in vegetable broth for about 30 minutes until they become soft. 

If you didn’t purchase store-bought oat flour, you want to make it while cooking.  Simply process it in a food processor until it forms a fine powder.  

In a food processor, combine all your remaining ingredients, including the cooked lentils when they’re done, and puree until everything is well combined.  

After combining your ingredients, refrigerate the mixture for four hours or overnight. Refrigeration fosters the blending of the ingredients.  Without it, the ingredients will not hold together well. 

The meat can then be rolled into hot dog shapes after the mixture is chilled.  Afterward, air fry the mixture for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees F, frying it once at halftime. 

After removing from the heat, place the hot dog on hot dog buns with your favorite toppings. 

Can I Make These Vegan Hot Dogs In The Oven?

Definitely! They are more temperamental in the oven than in the air fryer. Moreover, they are not crisp as fried in the air fryer. We recommend using an air fryer instead of the oven to make these vegetarian hot dogs. 

We recommend baking them at 350 degrees F for 23-27 minutes if you do not have an air fryer. 

Flip them over halfway through making them.  You may find that they stick.  You should leave them out and wait for a few minutes until they cool down before carefully flipping them over and returning them to the oven for the remaining cooking time.

Ten years ago, vegan hot dogs looked a lot different. Seitan and pea protein-based meaty links that sizzle and snap with every bite have evolved since tinted tofu squished into a sausage shape. The meat batters stuffed into synthetic casings always falls short of the meat batter you bring to the barbecue. You have everything you need to know about vegan hot dogs.
