Carrot Dogs

So, this hot dog replacement has been floating around the plant-based boards lately and we gave it a try while camping.  It was part of a PERFECT camping meal served on some bread.  And it tasted so yummy!  This is a quick meal, but you need to prep the night before.


  • 4 carrots, scrubbed and ends cut off and cut in half if long
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium tamari
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • hot dog buns or bread
  • toppings of choice – I like mine plain

Boil whole carrots until fork tender, but not mushy.  You may need to take carrots out at different times.  Run under cold water once removed.

Combine tamari through onion powder and mix well.  Pour mixture into a ziploc bag.  Add carrots and seal well.  Allow to marinate overnight.  (I actually hung the ziploc in our fridge.)

Heat a pot on medium heat.  Add carrots and about 1/3 of the marinade.  Cook uncovered until marinade is pretty much gone and carrots are somewhat browned.  Serve immediately on hot dog buns/bread and top as you wish.  Enjoy!

**Chef’s Note**  I bet you could grill these too!
