Are you kidding me?

Carrot dogs?

When I first heard about carrot dogs I was very skeptical.  As a long time plant eater (10+years) I thought this sounded crazy…that is, until I tried it.

I have had more fun serving them to my friends and family and watching their reactions.

The taste and the texture are remarkably similar to a boiled hot dog.

Who doesn’t love a hot dog with all the fixings?  Well, now you can have carrot dogs and know that you are feeding you and your loved ones nutritious and delicious food.

  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke
  • 1 tso Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tbsp Tamari

Instructions

  1. Prepare the carrots to be the size and shape of a typical hotdog.

    Combine and mix well, all of the remaining ingredients for the marinade.

    Marinate the carrots in a shallow dish.

    Leave carrots in marinade for 30 minutes to overnight (the longer the better for flavour), turning the carrots a few times to ensure they are marinated on all sides.

    Once the marinading is finished, place the carrots and the marinade in a larger baking dish and bake covered for 30-45 minutes testing the carrots for perfect done-ness with a fork.

    Remove the carrots from the baking dish and BBQ a few minutes to achieve grill marks (optional).

    Serve in your favourite hot dog bun with all the usual condiments and be prepared....these Carrot Dogs truly are incredible.

    Delicious and packed with nutrients. Long live the carrot dog!!
