  • Zucchini – 170 g
  • Tomato paste – 1 tablespoon
  • Smoked paprika powder – 0.5 teaspoon
  • Oat flakes – 2 tablespoons
  • Meat seasoning – 3 teaspoons

  • Spelt flour – 60 g


  • Hot dog buns – 4 pieces
  • Pickles – 3 pieces
  • Fried onions – 4 tablespoons
  • Ketchup – 4 tablespoons

Step 1: Prepare Ingredients for Hot Dogs

Cook lentils in water with bay leaf for about 10 minutes until tender. Then drain and discard the bay leaf. Grate the zucchini using a grater with large holes, sprinkle with salt, and set aside on a sieve to drain excess water.

Step 2: Sauté the Ingredients

Finely dice shallot and chop garlic. Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion until translucent. Towards the end, add garlic, tomato paste, and meat seasoning. Sauté for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Then add the well-drained zucchini and cook the ingredients for about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Prepare the Mixture for Sausages

Add the sautéed ingredients and lentils to a blender and pulse until combined. Then add flour and oat flakes and repeat the process.

Step 4: Chill the Sausages

Let the mixture cool. Then shape it into sausages, wrap them in plastic wrap, and chill for a minimum of 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Step 5: Grill the Sausages

Unwrap the chilled sausages and grill them after brushing with olive oil.

Step 6: Serve Hot Dogs

Grill the buns until lightly golden. Slice the pickles. Place a sausage in each bun, add pickle slices, fried onions, ketchup, and mustard to each.
