DIY Vegan and Gluten-Free Lentil Hot Dogs

DIY Vegan and Gluten-Free Lentil Hot Dogs

These homemade vegan, sugar-free, soy-free, and gluten-free hot dogs are made with nutritious ingredients and are a great healthy alternative to the processed store-bought version.

This post was created in partnership with Little Northern Bakehouse.

You can easily find vegan hot dogs at most grocery stores these days so why in the world would you want to make your own?

Well, for starters, virtually every brand is made from gluten and/or soy. Not exactly ideal for those with food allergies. Secondly, processed faux meat isn’t really the healthiest option considering it’s not made from whole food ingredients.

Luckily, making your own at home is easy and only requires a few key ingredients!

When you see the total time for this recipe it might seem daunting but nearly half the time is allowing them to set in the refrigerator. The recipe itself takes about 45 minutes to make. Not the quickest but considering you get eight hot dogs, it’s worth the investment.

Sure, I could always post a recipe for gluten-free hot dog buns but I don’t see a reason to do that when there’s an awesome store-bought option like Little Northern Bakehouse’s Millet & Chia Hot Dog Buns. The texture is soft and fluffy, and I love that the team infuses them with nutritious ingredients like whole-grain millet and chia seeds.

I’ve decided to partner with Little Northern Bakehouse this year because I’m a huge fan of the philosophy behind the brand. Little Northern Bakehouse’s entire line of products is plant-based and certified gluten-free (suitable for celiac disease). The company also uses a peanut and nut-free facility. Little Northern Bakehouse is Non-GMO Project Verified and has Non Glyphosate Certification from BioChecked.

Best of all, its products actually taste good! Trust me, I’ve tried A LOT of gluten-free bread and Little Northern Bakehouse’s is by far my favorite. The texture is incredibly similar to regular bread.
