Easy, inexpensive kid-friendly recipe for vegan dogs from "Quick and Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Food." I use these with Vegan Dad's corndog recipe:

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Process soy sauce, oil, ketchup, garlic, onion, and brown sugar in blender until smooth. Slowly pour in water and blend until combined.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add soy sauce mixture to the gluten mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until combined and a soft wet dough forms.
  4. Divide dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into 6-inch log.
  5. Wrap each log tightly in aluminum foil (they will burst out while cooking if not wrapped tightly enough). Twist ends of foil to seal.
  6. Steam for 30 minutes.
  7. Unroll and enjoy!

These are great! I've made them before although a little different on some of the ingredients. Definitely get the texture right and perfect for corn dogs!!! I've had to steam mine a little bit longer though to firm them up properly.

Great way to get a hot dog fix! I smiled the whole time I was making these. It was fun recipe to make. The dough smelled like hot dogs, so that was encouraging. The dough was really sticky. I used some flour on my hands to roll them. I only made six and think they would have been better smaller to get the eight that the recipe said it would yield. I'm not a huge fan of cumin, so I cut that in half and added a little dry mustard. I think next time I might add a bit more ketchup. They were really good served on a bun with some kraut, just what I was craving. The texture might take some getting used to, but they were fine with the kraut. I'm not sure how I well I'll like them plain. They looked great, much better than I expected. Thanks for posting this fun recipe!
