    Kary Osmond: These veggie dogs are next-level tasty thanks to a fun topping

    Veggie hot dogs have come a long way since they were first introduced, in both flavor and texture. That said, jazzing them up with a fun topping will take their flavor to the next level. My favorite topping is a mixture of quick pickled carrot, cabbage and onion. And when I cook a veggie dog, I prefer to boil or steam them to keep them tender. That tenderness paired with a crunchy pickled topping and drizzled with a tangy Dijon mustard will make you want a second.

    Slaw Dogs

    Serves 5


    1/2 cup rice vinegar

    1/4 cup water


    3 tablespoon white sugar

    1 carrot, peeled and grated

    1/2 cup thinly sliced cabbage

    1/2 cup thinly sliced onion

    5 veggie hot dogs

    5 buns

    Dijon mustard

    1. In a small pot, combine rice vinegar, water and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat, allow to cool.

    2. In a small glass container, combine carrot, cabbage and onion. Pour the cooled vinegar mixture over the vegetables and use a fork to press down the vegetables until they’re covered by the marinade. Set aside for 30 minutes, or longer. Then drain and set aside.

    3. While the vegetables are marinating, fill a small pan with an inch of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer (light bubble) add hot dogs, cover and cook for 2 minutes.

    4. If you like, toast the hot buns until golden, or place them in the microwave for 2 seconds to soften them up. Fill each bun with a cooked veggie dog, top with a spoonful of the drained pickled slaw, and drizzle with Dijon mustard.

    Tasty tips

    • Have fun with garnishes. I live using crispy fried onions, crumbled plain chips, avocado or cilantro.
    • Veggie dogs cook very quickly, so keep an eye on the timer.
    • You can substitute cabbage with grated daikon
