Lentil Carrot and Veggie Hot Dogs (Vegan)
Make your own quick and tasty carrot hot dog with pureed veggies and
lentils to give them a delicious taste and fine ‘veggie dog’-like
texture. They’re fast, easy, and full of goodness. Vegan and easily
Cook the lentils in the stock for 10 minutes or until tender, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat, then add the onion and sautee for a few minutes until translucent but not browned. Add the grated carrot and sauté for 3-5 minutes until soft.
Add the cooked lentils, carrot mixture, spices, salt, and pepper to a food processor and whiz until it’s thick and well combined.
Tip the mixture into a bowl and mix in 3 tablespoons of the flour. Add more flour, a tablespoon at a time, until a thick and manageable consistency. You may not need all of the flour.
Roll into hot dog-like shapes, place on a plate, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat 1 tsp of the oil in a frying pan over medium/low heat and add some of the hot dogs. Fry, gently turning often, until golden.
Repeat in batches.
Serve in a hot dog bun (I topped with mustard, ketchup & pickles)
