Vegan Carrot Dogs

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 4


  • 4 thick carrots
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke I used hickory flavor, but you can use anyone you'd prefer
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Peel the carrots. For true hot dog resemblance, when peeling, round the edges (like a hot dog.)
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the liquid smoke, soy sauce, maple syrup, onion and garlic powder. Place the carrots in a shallow baking dish and pour over the liquid mixture. If you have the time, cover and let them marinate for at least 2 hours. If not, that’s okay, just roll the carrots around in the mixture, using your fingertips to massage the marinade into the carrots. When the carrots are coated in the mixture, season with pepper and transfer to the baking sheet. Roast for 35 minutes or until fork tender. Every five minutes, brush the carrots with the remaining marinade mixture.
  • Once your carrot dog is done, place it into a hot dog bun and top it with your favorite hot dog toppings.
