Meatless Dish- Smoked Carrot Dog

Wait a minute before you exit out of here. I know what you're thinking... Carrot Hot Dog??? This is outta control. I said the same thing when I saw this recipe floating around. When I kept seeing it pop up, it was a sign telling me to give it a try. Did I like it? Keep scrolling to find out.

-Hot Dog Buns
*For Marinade*
-Red Wine Vinegar
-Garlic (minced)
-Liquid Smoke
-Seasoned Salt & Pepper

Cut the ends of the carrots and peel; boil carrots until they are fork tender don't overcook them; once they are done drain and run under cool water to stop the cooking process; while the carrots are cooking start preparing the marinade; whisk together vinegar, garlic, liquid smoke, and seasonings; add the carrots and marinade to a zip style bag; refrigerate for about 24 hours; the next day brown them with olive oil and some of the marinade; serve with your choice of toppings.

I had mines two ways-
Vegetarian: with mayo, scallions, onions, tomatoes, and mustard
Vegan: I simply added Pikliz

My favorite was the vegetarian version. It's been a while since I've had a hot dog (not feeling the mystery meat) and I was shocked at how this meatless version tasted exactly like I had just eaten the real thing. I was like.....

How can this be???

Liquid Smoke is great for those of us who can't always do outdoor cooking. It truly gave the carrots that hickory smoke flavor. It's all natural, vegan, no additives, and gluten free. It can be used for whenever you desire smoke flavor.

This recipe gets two thumbs up from me. I will definitely be making this again and using the liquid smoke for other dishes. Don't knock it till you tried it.

This recipe was also featured on a well known natural living website.
