Carrot dogs are one of the most trending foods currently-social media is full of it and they really look awesome. So, it’s time we also give them a go, don’t you agree?!
Carrot dogs are a plant-based way to enjoy something similar to hot dogs. They even look so similar to it that one wouldn’t know that they’re actually free of meat.
They’re so easy to make and the whole family will enjoy them-whether on a bun or not. It’s a great option for those who want to avoid gluten, soy or meat in general.
It’s also a dairy-free recipe so people sensitive to dairy or those who avoid it because of some reason can make this recipe a staple in their kitchen.

Homemade Vegan Carrot Dogs Recipe
For 8 serves, you’ll need:
8 big carrots
¼ cup of gluten-free tamari
¼ cup of water
¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
A tsp of garlic powder
A dash of Liquid Smoke
A tbsp of veggie oil
8 gluten-free hot dog buns
Red onion sauce
Peel the carrots and cut off the ends. Cut them as you would a hot dog to fit the bun.
Boil them in a pot of water to be fork-tender, somewhere around 15 minutes. Strain them and run them under cool water.
In an air-tight container, combine the water, vinegar, tamari, garlic powder, and liquid smoke. Then, use it as marinade for the carrots. Keep it in the fridge for 4 hours at least, up to 24 hours.
To prep the carrot dogs, heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and set the carrots in a single layer.
Pour some of the remaining marinade on top and cook until they’re caramelized. Rotate them regularly while cooking to cook them evenly.
You can serve them on the bun with sauerkraut, mustard, and red onion sauce or any other ingredients you want.
