Carrot Dogs Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 large carrots
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp low-sodium tamari
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • ¼ tsp liquid smoke
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 4 whole-grain hot dog buns, toasted if desired

Instructions

  • 1. Peel the carrots, trim the ends, and cut them to the length of your hot dog buns.
  • 2. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the carrots and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, until tender but not mushy. Drain the carrots in a colander and put them under cold running water. This shocks them and prevents them from getting any softer.
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, water, tamari, molasses, liquid smoke, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper. Transfer the marinade to a large ziptop bag and add the cooled carrots. Toss gently to coat. Refrigerate overnight.
  • 4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 5. Remove the carrots from the marinade and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until heated through and slightly browned.
  • 6. Serve the carrots in the hot dog buns with your choice of toppings.

Cooking Tips

  • 1. Top your hot dog with any of the following toppings: ketchup, mustard, diced onion, plant-based coleslaw, saurkraut, relish or a plant-based chili.
