These taste just like hot dogs! They are plant based and very economical. I halved the recipe and just put mustard on with no bun.

If you save your vegetable scraps, you will be able to make your own vegetable broth for free.


Prep Time: 4-24 hours

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 4-24 hours

Yield: 8 carrot dogs


  • 8 large carrots
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
  • dash ground cloves
  • 8 whole wheat hot dog buns, toasted if desired
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped (¼ cup)
  • 3 Tbsp stone-ground mustard
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, spiralized
Ingredients for Carrot Dogs


  1. Peel the carrots. Place in a pot,cover with water, put the lid on and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook 8-10 minutes, until just tender. Drain well.
  2. Clean carrots in a colander.

  3. Put the next 11 ingredients (up to cloves) in a zip lock bag. Add the carrots and make sure they are covered. Refrigerate 4 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
  4. The spice mixture for the carrots.

  5. Grill 5-8 minutes on medium high until grill marks form. You can also bake at 450 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, which is what I did.
  6. The baked or grilled carrots.
  7. Serve on buns with mustard and cucumber, or as a side dish.
