Carrot Dogs

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.
