INGREDIENTS::

  • 6 - 8 peeled carrots

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos

  • 1 table spoon maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon of the following: garlic powder, salt, mustard powder, smoked paprika, turmeric

  • 3 teaspoons liquid smoke

  • 1 tablespoon grape seed oil

  • 2 tablespoons water

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Boil the peeled carrots until they are soft enough to pierce with a fork, but be careful not to overcook them.

  2. Remove from water and cool.

  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a large zip lock bag, then add the cooled carrots.

  4. Let the carrot marinade in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours. I normally prepare the carrots in the morning and they are ready by dinner. The longer they marinate, the more flavorful they will be. You can let them marinate for a day or 2 as well.

  5. Once the carrots have marinated, they are ready to grill! If you can not grill them, you could alternatively heat them in a skillet for several minutes until cooked through.
