POST #761

Here’s what we did for July 4th – kind of simple, but still yummy.

RAW VEGAN HOT DOGS yummies.html
Raw whole food hot dogs
Makes 6-8
We put mustard and fresh-made sauerkraut on some of them, and mustard and cole slaw on the others. Both ways, YUMM!

1-1/2 c walnuts
¼ onion
¼ beet
½ carrot
2 clove garlic
2 T agave (to taste)
2 T soy sauce/tamari
2 t hickory smoke flavor*
1 t marjoram
½ t celery seed
½ t salt
½ t smoked paprika
sprinkle cayenne pepper

Blend till smooth in food processor.
Form dough into hot dog shapes on teflex (6-8).
Dehydrate 105 about 4 hrs.
Flip onto grid dehydrate to the texture you like. (Another hr or so.) Roll lightly into shape.
Serve warm.

*Carmella’s Notes:
~ Hickory/ liquid smoke can be found in health food store, usually alongside other savory sauces.
~ This is pretty intense stuff so I would recommend starting with less than what’s called for.


  • 3/4 1-lb cabbage
  • 2 T mayonnaise (more or less, depending on how soupy you like it. I don’t like soupy)
  • 1/4 C finely chopped onions
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • cayenne paper (to taste, if you choose)


( I also sometimes make my cole slaw with just extra virgin olive oil, instead of mayonnaise)

We also had sauerkraut (I served it as a side, but we put it on some of the hot dogs)
This was a 3-day sauerkraut, and it came out PERFECT!
