Just the other day, I happened to catch Bobby Flay’s hot dog Throw Down and thought, how could we do an Asian style dog? I mean, hot dog! Easy enough – let’s find a low calorie hot dog (found these at Whole Foods – 110 calories per serving), wheat buns, and fresh veggies. The green chutney is common – I found this recipe online. Chutney was very easy to make and certainly packs flavor. I’d estimate 2 hot dogs topped with fresh veggies and green chutney around 500 calories. Give this quick recipe a shot – and don’t forget to let me know what you think!
