Easy Meatless Hot Dogs

 Ever throw a summer party and find out one of your guests does not eat meat. You find yourself  scrambling around the kitchen because you don’t want to serve them some boring cauliflower dish. The good news is these days there are so many plant based options that go beyond cauliflower and soy. 

As you may already know I am following a mostly plant based diet with occasional meat dishes only 20% of the time. I have learned to create delicious meatless meals out of necessity and it has been a thing of beauty. Brands like Beyond Meat and Light Life have mastered the art of creating meatless products that make a mostly plant based diet easy for folks like me who are flexitarians. 

I have always used Beyond Meat products but decided to try the Lightlife brand to switch things around. I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. We made hot dogs using the Italian Sausage and Bratwurst flavor sausages toped with onions and peppers. It was so delicious even the hubby was pretty satisfied. 

So the next time you are faced with the decision of what to serve a non-mean eater for your next barbecue don’t sweat it. Just grab some plant based sausage or burger and you are good to go. They will love you for it.

  1. I’ve never heard of this brand before and it sounds like a delicious brand of a hot dog, I am going to check this out!

  2. Okay not something I would eat personally but surely something that I could have on hand for guests whose dietary preferences call for it!

  3. That was such a great options for vegans..! Someday when I have the enough patience and temper to be one of them, I wish more and more vegan options would be made.

  4. I love hotdogs. The pictures alone sealed the deal for me. This looks and sounds incredibly tasty.

  5. I haven’t tried lightlife yet. Just did the beyond meat sausage… it was good but had a little too much in terms of herbs for me. They’re still missing the mark a little. I’ll give these a go.

  6. I’ve never tried vegan hotdogs before, but I want to. These Light Life sausages will be the first brand I try!

  7. I’ve been faced with such a situation before with a vegetarian and I had to get some vegetable rice. But your idea about meatless hot dog is great! It look so delicious with the sauce and veggie salad. Yuum!

  8. Meat free alternatives are improving so quickly that I wouldn’t be surprised if the number of vegetarians was greater than the number of people still eating meat. It wouldn’t be a bad thing for the world if we went that way! I will have to try these out, they look great 🙂
