Vegan Friday- Corn Dogs aren’t just for “Hillbillies”

Vegan Corndogs

Before you say that these corn dogs look like a science experiment, let me tell you that they were absolutely, astoundingly, delicious.

I had my doubts about veganizing this recipe but it was quite good, it could “look” better if more time was spent correcting it but since I was the only one eating it, the look of it wasn’t as important.  I only wish I could have presented a prettier picture for our readers!

This recipe was the veganized version of HillBilly Housewife’s Corn Dog recipe.  Paired down to a 1/4:

  • 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1/3 Cup of mashed tofu
  • 1 Tblsp Olive oil
  • Dash of Sugar
  • Dash of Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Corn Meal
  • 2 Tbsp Sorghum Flour
  • 1 tsp of oil for the mixture
  • 3 Tofurky Italian Sausage (this is the winning portion of this recipe)
  • flour for dusting
  • Pan of Olive Oil or Coconut Oil
  • Popscicle sticks (or in my case, any sticks you have laying around)
Hillbilly Housewife suggests coating the dogs with flour before putting your mixture on it and I recommend the same.
I suggest that you start your oil frying when you begin this recipe because it’s quick and you’ll need it to be hot (I put this on Medium heat and it was perfect but everyone’s stoves are different) when you put the dogs in.
First, mix the almond milk (you might need a bit more almond milk, just keep testing it when you dip in the dogs, if the mixture is too crumbly, put more in) and the next 8 ingredients. Stir together until you get a thick soupy mixture.
Dip the flour coated dogs into the mixture and then directly into the hot oil.  Watch them until they brown and put on a plate with paper towels to let some of the oil soak off.
Pair it with some spicy mustard or ketchup, eat and enjoy!

UPDATE:
You might try using Chia Seeds instead of the tofu in place of eggs, this might come out a bit prettier.
