  • 1 C. TVP(Textured Vegetable Protein)
  • 3 C. Vegetable broth, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1/2 a Sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. Chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Celery salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Steak sauce, vegan
  • 1 Tbsp. Ketchup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6-8 Vegan Hot dogs
  • Buns
  • Raw onion for topping


  • First, bring one cup of veggie broth to a simmer in a medium sized sauce pan. Then stir in the TVP. Turn the heat off and set aside to let the TVP absorb all the broth. 
  • Now in a large pot, heat the olive oil on medium high. Then add the chopped onion and chopped garlic. Saute for 3-4 minutes, reducing heat as needed until the onion is translucent. 
  • Then stir in the tomato paste and saute for another minute. 
  • Next, stir in the TVP, then add the remaining 2 cups of broth. 
  • Bring to a low simmer, then stir in the chili powder, cumin, celery salt, steak sauce and ketchup. 
  • Let simmer stirring occasionally for 30-45 minutes or until the chili is the thickness you want. The TVP will continue to absorb the broth and thicken up. 
  • While the chili is simmering, grill, bake, or saute your vegan hot dogs. 
  • Once the chili is the thickness you want, taste and adjust seasoning by adding salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Serve your Coney Island dogs in a warmed bun with chili on top and raw onions or vegan cheese, or both!
