The BEST Vegan Carrot Hot Dog ever....yes.. a CARROT. 😲🥕🌭

Updated: Sep 20, 2020

Stop whatever it is that you're doing....scrap whatever plans you had for lunch or dinner... and make 👏 these 👏 dogs 👏.

You won't regret it. I'm shook. The husband's shook. We are officially shooketh. 😲

We'd seen some hype about carrots being substituted as hot dogs and bacon (oh we are so trying that next)...but didn't really take it seriously until we saw our Vegan Spirit Animal, Tabitha Brown's video on it. She too, was shooketh. We quickly ordered liquid smoke from Amazon (Doha folks...I just couldn't find it out here!). We went with Stubb's Hickory Liquid Smoke.

I'm not lying to you, I 100% want to try and trick the carnivore family members into this because at this point, I truly believe no one on planet earth would NOT love these. Please fellow vego's...try this. 🤗 🌭

The recipe that we used (and Tabitha used), was from passtheplants.com and by the look of the reviews, we all seem to be in the same carrot-loving boat. All credit to you passtheplants! 💚

Here's what you'll need:

  • 8 carrots, peeled and trimmed to hot dog bun length

  • 8 hot dog buns

  • 1 cup soy sauce or tamari

  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke

  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce or vegan Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup or tomato paste

  • 2 cups water


  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together liquid ingredients.

  • Add peeled carrots and bring to a boil.

  • Reduce heat to a medium simmer and cook carrots until barely fork-tender, 8-10 minutes depending on thickness.

  • Remove from the heat and let sit for 15-20 minutes.

  • Remove from the cooking liquid and serve with desired toppings.

And there you have it. We have tried straight up onions, ketchup and mustard...but the hands-down winner is a good old fashioned Chilli Dog!! Also, try it with our side of creamy crunchy coleslaw ( see https://www.addictedtoveg.com/post/creamy-crunchy-vegan-coleslaw).

AMAZING. Thank you once again https://passtheplants.com/easy-carrot-dogs/ for this absolute Megatron of a recipe. Whispers* I love you.......
