These Vegan Chorizo Hot Dogs are bound to satisfy even die-hard carnivores! They're:
- full of flavour
- secretly healthy
- super easy to make!
These Vegan Chorizo Hot Dogs were inspired by these Gluten-Free Vegan Sausage Rolls - they're made using protein- and fibre-rich kidney beans, and packed full of delicious herbs, spices and seasonings.
- sweet sundried tomatoes
- pungent garlic
- smoky paprika
- earthy cumin
- fragrant oregano
- spicy cayenne
- tangy vinegar
- umami-rich miso and soy sauce
I like to use kidney beans because the colour closely resembles chorizo, but if you're not into kidney beans they can easily be substituted with white beans or black beans.
This recipe uses tinned kidney beans, which are already cooked. If using dried kidney beans, you must be very careful to soak and cook them according to the instructions on the packet, because uncooked kidney beans contain toxins and will cause digestive problems!
All you need to do to make the hot dogs is throw all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and whizz them together! Then just mould them into hot dog shapes and cook them in a frying pan.
I love to serve these Vegan Chorizo Hot Dogs with lashings of vegan mayonnaise - this is my favourite recipe!
