Carrot Hot Dogs

Vegan hot dogs made from carrots? Yes, please! They're marinated so they pack a ton of flavor, and they grill up nicely, but you can cook them in a pan too. Yum!

Total Time 3 hours 30 minutes
Servings 4

What you'll need:

  • 4 whole carrots, peeled and cut into bun–length pieces with ends removed
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (or 1 clove garlic, minced)
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Desired condiments/toppings/buns

What you'll do:

  1. Fill a large pot halfway with water and bring to boil.
  2. Lower the heat to medium and cook the carrots until you can barely pierce through them with a fork. Be careful not to cut the carrots when testing.
  3. Combine all the other ingredients (except for condiments) together in a plastic container or baggie to make the marinade. Place the cooked carrots inside, shake up, and set aside to marinate for at least 3 hours, turning the carrots every once in a while to marinate all sides. You can marinate for up to a few days.
  4. When you're ready to serve, pour the carrots and marinade into a large pan on the stove top and place on medium heat, rotating periodically, for 5 to 10 minutes, until carrots are heated all the way through.
  5. Add the toppings of your choice and enjoy!
