Vegan Hot Dogs with Homemade Veggie Sausages

Bringing together vegan substitutes and soy intolerance is sometimes quite difficult. A lot of vegan „sausages“ and „steaks“ are made of soy protein or tofu. So you either have to search for other products (which is sometimes really stressful) or simply try to make the products by yourself. When it comes to vegan hot dogs, we already showed you our version for vegan carrot dogs. Today we show you a second option: homemade sausages made of vegetables.

Since this recipe is published as part of our IKEA week, we had a closer look at the ingredients lists of the IKEA veggie dogs. So we mainly processed peas, kale (or savoy cabbage), corn, and chickpeas. By pureeing the mass and adding chickpea flour (soy flour works too) and breadcrumbs, you can form small sausages. But be careful to let the sausages set before and after frying.

Vegan Hot Dogs with Homemade Veggie Sausages

10-12 Hot Dogs
45 minutes (+ 30 minutes waiting time)


  • 10-12 hot dog buns


  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • roasted onions
  • sliced gherkins

Homemade veggie sausages

  • 100 g red lentils (cooked)
  • 50 g quinoa (cooked)
  • 50 g carrot
  • 50 g kale or savoy cabbage
  • 200 g chickpeas (canned)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • salt&pepper
  • 35 g breadcrumbs
  • 75 g chickpea flour


  1. Boil quinoa and red lentils (according to the package instructions) and drain well.
  2. Wash the kale (or savoy cabbage), peel the carrot and cut both very finely. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic.
  3. Put quinoa, lentils, kale, carrots, onions, garlic, and chickpeas in a bowl and add the mustard, tomato paste, salt, and pepper and mix well.
  4. Use an immersion blender to “purée” the mixture a little (about 1/3). This way, you get a “dough“, and it’s possible to form sausages.
  5. Knead in the breadcrumbs and chickpea flour and form 10-12 sausages. Place the sausages on a plate. If the mass is too lumpy, puree again. If the mixture is too sticky, add more chickpea flour and breadcrumbs.
  6. Keep the sausages in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to set.
  7. Heat a pan with a little oil and fry the sausages for about 8-10 minutes. After frying, it is best to let the sausages rest in the pan for about 5-10 minutes. This way, they set again.
  8. Heat the hot dog buns in the oven according to the package instructions and serve the sausages with ketchup, mustard, sliced gherkins, and fried onions.
