Welcome to Vegan Nerd TV, Ep 1: Vegan Corndawgs

by Ainslie on June 4, 2012

Hey guys, check it out. I started a cooking show.

…ok not really. But sort of? I’ve seriously taken to video blogging + related activities lately, and last week I made my first proper cooking video. I mean, that time I made and ate vegan fish custard a la Doctor Who barely counts…because it was just an EATING video, not a COOKING video. (Hey – fun fact – did you know that when they filmed The Doctor eating “fish fingers” and custard…he wasn’t actually EATING FISH? It was some sort of coconutty thing made to look like fish fingers. The more you know!)

But I digress.

A few months ago I became obsessed with the idea of making vegan corndogs. What can I say, one day after an epic vlogbrothers marathon, complete with endless corndog references…I HAD TO TRY IT.

I’ve never had a “real” corndog. And as far as I can tell, there are no packaged vegan corndogs available (the Yves and Morningstar ones both appear to have milk + eggs in the cornbread part), soooo time to make my own?!

ANYWAY. I got some tofurky dogs. I got this recipe from The Hungry Herbivore, which I mostly followed…actually, pretty closely considering my usual disregard for recipes. And.

A WILD AND DELICIOUS VEGAN CORNDOG APPEARED. Ok, just watch the video already, ugh.

I’m thinking I might try making some vegan shawarma for my next episode…thoughts?

Great video! I didn’t think I had had corndogs either… until the end of the video and I realized we used to call them pogos as kids. ;)

Haha!! This is HILARIOUS!! I think I may start using the word “condimentia” btw. Also, I think we MAY have the same hair.

Psh, corndoggery doesn’t sound foolish, it sounds sophisticated! As in “Yesterday, Nigel and I went took a stroll around the estate, and then participated in a rousing bout of corndoggery!” or “Shenanigans, sir! That was nothing but some corndoggery!”
But, as a side note, those did look delicious. I too, have never eaten a corn dog (or Pogo, as I used to call them, because I only ever saw those ones in the freezer section of loblaws), but I may just have to give this a shot!
