Happy Herbivore’s Vegan Corndogs
When I first decided to go vegan, I was not very creative when it came to my meals and I worried I would get bored from eating the same things all the time or relying too much on frozen meals.
Thankfully, it wasn’t long after I started my journey that I found the Happy Herbivore blog and her incredibly easy and tasty recipes!
Last night, I made her Baked Vegan Corndogs for the girls to take to our Wednesday Night Potluck.
I only had to buy a couple ingredients, including the dogs, dry mustard and onion powder.
And finally, after 7 months of vegan eating, I purchased my first box of Ener-G Egg replacer!
The box costs about $5, but there are 113 servings in the box! This is equivalent to 113 eggs!! It’s CHEAPER THAN EGGS! This box should last me a while 🙂
I followed the recipe exactly, which I rarely do. But, I still had a hard time getting the batter to coat the Smart Dogs, so it took a little effort and getting my hands dirty.
I also got the batter to cover 8 dogs, instead of the 6 called for by the recipe.
While they were cooking in the oven, I couldn’t believe how much my apartment smelled like “real” corndogs! I knew we were in for a treat.
When the corndogs came out, the coating wasn’t the prettiest and it had cracked in a few places.
But, I am pleased to say that these tasted very good. I tasted one first to make sure they were edible 😉
To go with our “dogs” we had sweet potato fries, mixed vegetables…
and white wine.
Then for dessert, “sparkling” pink wine and a Tofutti mini ice cream sandwich.
On my way home from work I was hungry (and thirsty!) so I stopped at Whole Foods and picked up a snack 🙂
This tea was okay, but not as “refreshing” as I had hoped for. I think next time I’ll just get a venti iced green tea from Starbucks 😉
