I’ve seen pictures on social media of all these carrot dogs and they always look so good I knew I had to give them a try. Once they were done, it was time for the moment of truth. They looked like hot dogs. I put one carrot dog on a bun which made it look even more like a hot dog. What a great idea to enjoy a hot dog without soy, gluten or any ingredients at all other than the marinade! I can’t wait to make them again!

Ingredients

  • 8 large carrots
  • ¼ cup gluten-free tamari
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • A few dashes Liquid Smoke
  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 8 gluten-free hot dog buns
Toppings:
  • Mustard
  • Sauerkraut
  • I Heart New York Red Onion Sauce (See recipe HERE)

Preparation

  1. Peel the carrots, cut off the ends and cut them into the shape of hot dogs that will fit your buns. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the carrots until they are just fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain them and run them under cool water to stop the cooking.
  2. In an air-tight storage container, mix the tamari, water, vinegar, garlic powder and liquid smoke. Marinate the carrots in the fridge for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the carrots from the marinade and arrange them in the skillet in a single layer. Add a few spoons of the marinade and cook until the carrots begin to caramelize. Rotate them often.
  4. Serve on buns with mustard, sauerkraut and red onion sauce or your favorite toppings.

  1. I tried these for the first time last week. So delicious, and yes, hard to believe they were carrots. I\’m sold!!! The true test will be when I serve them to some of my non vegan friends. I won\’t tell them until afterwards.
    Mind you I never did like the other hotdogs that much, I found the skins were way too chewy and as for the filling, hmm, questionable. These are way healthier and it\’s good to know what you\’re putting in to your body

  2. What a great idea! My local Mexican grocery always has the larger, stubbier carrots at 3 pounds 99¢ –perfect for this. But I will microwave my carrots rather than boil them — 6 min vs 15. Takes less time and no boiling water. Veggies are very high in water so they are perfect for the microwave.
