This summer Adrienne joined our community of hearts and brought with her a passion for good quality health food. One day she mentioned carrot hotdogs and I thought wow, what a great idea, but how would they taste? So, I set out to make the best tasting carrot hots anyone had ever tasted. And I believe that we successes! I took this great recipe and brought them to our family camp (where there are usually 35-70 dedicated meat eating veggie resistant, salt of the earth souls. The hotdogs were an overwhelming success, 35 out of 36 taste testers were blown away by the taste and texture and all agreed that they would eat them again and many wanted the recipe!
Feeling brave or adventurous today, try out my recipe.
Carrot Root Dog Recipe
Let’s assume that we are all getting the best quality ingredients that we can afford. Organic, natural and as fresh as possible.
Boil Carrots (use the number that you need, make extra, you will want more) to the firmness that as per your taste. Marinade the carrots 2-3 hours in a mixture of organic soy, apple cider vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, spices and capers (optional). I prefer to marinade them overnight so that they are ready when I want them or when I need them. Take Root’dogs out of marinade and place on a med/high warm BBQ (could also be done in the over or stove top as in the picture above but my favourite so far is on the BBQ).
- Carrots (6-12)
- 1/4 cup organic soy sauce (I like Braggs),
- 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar,
- 1/4 cup of sesame oil,
- 2 cloves of crushed garlic,
- equivalent in grated or chopped ginger,
- tablespoon of capers (optional),
- pinch of black pepper,
- pinch of garlic powder,
- pinch of celery seed.
- Other spices according to taste 😉
Now for the best part, top them with what ever your favourite toppings are. This is a limitless list. Come back soon and I will make some suggestions for fabulous toppings.
For those who what to get really really real here, use kale or other leafy green as a Root’dog wrap and if you really want a bun, try the Eziekial buns, spouted grains and good nutrition value.
Soon, to come I will post the nutrition values for each recipe we post. This blog is a work in progress, much like my life.
Love & enjoy wild soulful food,
