  • 2 tsp. soy margarine
  • 1 medium shallot, julienned
  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tsp. vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 oz. Marsala cooking wine
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Hot Dogs

  • 6 vegetarian hot dogs
  • 6 whole wheat buns
  • About 6 oz. shredded Swiss, Muenster or soy mozzarella cheese


  1. To make Marsala Mushrooms: Heat margarine in small skillet, add shallots and mushrooms and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and browned. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and wine; cook 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat electric or stove-top grill.
  3. To make Hot Dogs: Split dogs lengthwise until nearly halved. Spray grill with cooking spray. Open each hot dog out almost flat, and place on grill. Weight down, if possible, to increase amount of surface touching grill; turn to grill other side.
