Just because we have gone to a WFPB way of eating, does not mean we have to give up our beloved hotdogs. I never thought I'd say this, but carrot dogs are a great substitute! And I promise, once you have piled on the mustard, ketchup, relish, onions and your other favorite toppings, you'd never know you were eating a carrot! We can replace the high fat, cholesterol laden, processed dead animal parts hotdog with a nutrient dense, antioxidant and beta carotene rich beautiful carrot!!! No more dead animal parts sitting in your gut, wreaking havoc on your body!
Choose organic carrots that are not real skinny. Wash well, and cut them into hotdog length pieces. No need to peel if they are organic. Boil them in a pot of water until a fork can pierce them. Don't get them too soft or mushy, as you will be cooking more at a later time. Drain and let cool. Once cool, pierce each one several times with a fork, which will allow for the marinade to penetrate the carrot. Marinate for 4-6 hours, or overnight. Cook in fry pan over hot fire, or grill outside for more smoky flavor! Whatever you do, MAKE SURE to cook at least a dozen carrot dogs! We keep them in the fridge all week to have on hand for a quick snack or meal! To prepare the marinade, watch my youtube video below!
