It’s that time of year again! We all want to be outdoors and cooking food on the grill. I adore hot dogs, and these yummy Lightlife hot dogs are super delicious, high in protein, low in fat and salt (comparatively)… and vegan!
Are you ready for this awesomeness? Start your grill and make some of these today!
Of course you can use a stove top grill pan if you don’t have a grill or are just hungry and in a hurry to eat.
for one serving (two hot dogs)
2 of your favorite vegan hot dogs (I used Lightlife Smart Dogs, but I also like Field Roast Frankfurters)
2 lightly toasted hot dog buns (with a little vegan butter or mayo if you wish)
approximately 1/2 cup chopped, spicy kimchi
2 Tablespoons sweet chili sauce (I used Mae Ploy)
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese (such as Daiya)
pickled onion or raw onion, chopped
toasted sesame seeds
Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet. Once hot, add the chopped kimchi and garlic. Saute for a few minutes, or until the garlic is golden and fragrant. Add the sweet chili sauce and stir until heated through. Cover, remove from heat, and set aside.
Toast your buns, and spread a little vegan butter or mayonnaise on them (if you wish.) Top with shredded cheddar, the grilled hot dogs, the kimchi mixture, onion, mustard, and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
