If anyone had ever told me that a carrot could taste like a hot dog before I tried these, I would have told them they were crazy! Throw one of these in a bun, add ketchup and mustard, and you have yourself a seriously delicious vegan hot dog. I had this for dinner last night and I felt like a kid again. Pair with some sweet potato fries, chips, or a tasty kale salad and you have yourself a filling, nourishing, and scrumptious meal! YUM.


Vegan Carrot Hot Dog

Makes 4 hot dogs | Prep Time 15 minutes


4 carrots (remove ends and cut into length of bun)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp Bragg's liquid aminos (soy sauce will work, too)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 dashes liquid smoke


Fill pot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Add carrots and reduce to medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes (until you can pierce through it with a fork).

Combine apple cider vinegar, water, Bragg's liquid aminos, garlic powder, and liquid smoke in a container large enough to hold the carrots to create the marinade.

Once carrots have cooled, place them in container with marinade and let them marinate overnight.

The next day, warm them up and enjoy!
