M&S Plant Kitchen Chorizo Puppies

You get eight vegan sausages in this pack. They are mildly spiced with smoked paprika, chilli powder, and roasted garlic. Ingredients include mushroom, red pepper, soy, and caramelised onion sausages, so tasty and filled with flavour.

For the best results, fry these sausages or place them under the grill following pack instructions. They will also crisp up nicely on the outside if you choose to cook them in an air fryer.

Gluten-Free & Vegan goodness!

Moving Mountains Plant-Based Hot Dogs

Vegan Hot Dog

The Vegan Society Trademark approved Moving Mountains Plant-Based Hot Dogs contains four hot dogs in this pack; they are uniquely made from sunflower seeds, which means they are high in protein, have a natural smokey flavour, and a bouncy hot-doggy texture.

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 20 g vegan butter we used Vitalife Dairy Free Spread
  • 6 red onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard


  • Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan on medium heat, once hot, add the chopped onions and fry for 20-25 minutes until they become very soft.
  • Turn up the heat slightly, add the sugar and mustard until they are caramelised. This should take around 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place it on top of the hotdog! Enjoy!

Hot dog mustard

Mustard goes really well with hotdogs and fried onions. Luckily for mustard lovers, most brands and varieties are vegan! The exception to this is honey mustard and in some cases Dijon mustard. You can check on the product search function to see the variety of mustards that is suitable for your dietary requirements. We like to mix English mustard and tomato ketchup.

However, if you are not a mustard lover, you can check to see our Top 10 Vegan condiments that might work well on your hotdog such as ketchup, HP sauce…
