EASY Carrot Dogs | Gluten Free + Vegan |

8:00 AM

I've been craving these Carrot Dogs since I made them on the 4th of July (where they were a hit with vegan/non-beef eaters). So on Monday when I tend to plan for easy to make meals, I whipped out the recipe and made them for myself since the hubs was getting his beef hog dog fix thanks to AppleGate.

This recipe is SO EASY. Like so easy a monkey could do it if you happened to have a monkey. The key is to have that smoked paprika on hand. Thats the power to this carrot dog. It gives it that meaty hot dog taste.

Carrot Dog - Gluten Free and Vegan
Easy Carrot dogs that are perfect for those non-meat eaters at your cookout
  • 4 Medium Carrots
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Broth
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoon Gluten Free Soy Sauce
  • 2tbs+2tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon Yellow Mustard
Peel the carrots and trim them to fit your buns (I used canyon bakehouse GF buns).In a pot with a steamer basket. Steam your carrots till they are fork tender*.While they are steaming make your marinade.Whisk together the broth, vinegar, soy sauce, mustard, garlic powder, and paprika in a dish that can fit your carrots or a plastic bag.Once the carrots are done and cooled. Add them to the marinade. Marinate for at least 3 hours to 1 day. Turning the carrots twice.When you are ready use a grill or grill pan and heat to a high heat.Add the carrots to the pan, turning once or twice till grill marks appear and the carrots are hot. Serve on buns immediately with your favorite toppings!NOTES: *This requires some watching. You want them soft but not too soft. I've had both. Its better to have them on the softer side. *If you don't feel you have enough marinade to cover the carrots. Just add more veggie broth.
