This is the summer of Easy CARROT Dogs I am so grateful for sites like forksoverknives.com and people like Johanna for sharing her recipe pictures with us!!
According to Johanna these Easy CARROT Dogs were. She ate two! If you like roasted carrots and you like the taste of hotdogs, the recipe accomplished that. Mustard, ketchup, sour kraut and onion pushed it even further into hot dog land. She liked these much better than the meat alternative dogs in the grocery store and will definitely make them again.

- 8 large carrots
- 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari

- ½ of a red onion, finely chopped (¼ cup)
- 3 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
- ½ of a medium cucumber, spiralized
- Peel carrots and trim to 6 inches long. Trim wide end to make a consistent thickness. Place carrots in a large saucepan; add water to cover. Cover pan and bring to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cook carrots 8 to 10 minutes, until just tender. Drain well.
- Place carrots in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a bowl combine the next 11 ingredients (through cloves) and ½ cup water. Pour over carrots; seal bag. Chill 4 to 24 hours, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade.
- Grill carrots, covered, over medium-high 5 to 8 minutes or until grill marks start to appear, turning occasionally. Or place carrots in a foil-lined baking pan and bake at 450°F 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.
- Place grilled carrots in buns. Top with red onion, mustard, and cucumber.
Some notes Mine are a working progress SOOOOOO I boiled mine in marinade til little tenter then put them in a marinade overnight. we will see how it goes. Add lots of tomatoes, red onion, slaw, mustard and banana peppers.
Bottom line try it! I’m not a huge fan of cooked carrots either, but I could eat these for days!
