The folks at Whole Foods Markets asked me to come up with a holiday recipe using ingredients from their stores. This recipe is vegan… and organic. It’s quick and easy. Perfect when you need something simple to serve guests.
I started thinking about my carbon footprint and frankly I was mesmerized by the selection of plant based meats I’d never heard of. Then I looked up and saw: Farmhouse Culture Organic Smoked Jalapeno Kraut. My mind started to churn. I love sauerkraut. Below it was Viana Smoked Veggie Frankfurters. I had a change of plans. This recipe is vegan… and organic. The veggie dogs non-GMO verified. It’s quick and easy. Perfect when you need something simple to serve guests.
- Cut the veggie dogs into 1/2 -1 inch long pieces. Cook in 1/4 cup water in a saucepan over medium heat until brown and heated throughout, about 5 minutes.
- Drain the kraut completely. Stuff each shell with about 1 teaspoon of kraut, and top with a slice of hotdog and garnish with a squirt of mustard. Enjoy!
But, then…I walked a little further, saw these, and bought them too! I adore hushpuppies and they smoke their own salmon in the store!
