Margo DeMello

  • This is an easy meal that you can feel good about giving your children. No nitrates here! Meredith Lee/The HSUS

Serves 3

1 cup tomato puree
One 15-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
3 tofu or veggie hot dogs, sliced
 

In a medium saucepan, mix all the ingredients except for the hot dogs.

Bring to a boil and let simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.

Stir in the sliced veggie dogs and heat for another 5 minutes.
