Best Roasted Carrot Hot Dogs

roasted carrot hot dog - vegan


It looks like a hot dog- but is it really  a roasted carrot ? 

Looking for a vegan and gluten free hot dog alternative for your next BBQ?
Well first look in your refrigerator for a bag of carrots.

Yes, marinated roasted whole carrots look like hot dogsand fit perfectly on a hot dog roll ( gluten free of course). Add some ketchup, mustard and even a little sauerkraut and you now have the star of the BBQ- 

Healthy, tasty, easy, gluten free and vegan!

Easy Recipe
All you need to do is marinate some carrots in a roasting pan. Then roast until tender and serve.

The result really looks like hot dogs and they taste good.

My son and his family were visiting for dinner, and I made these cute little hot dogs ( along with a full meal) just to see their reaction.

Kid Approved

My two granddaughters ( ages 10 and 7) couldn't wait to taste them. We put them on a hot dog roll, added some sauerkraut ( which they both love) and they took their first bite.

Surprisingly they were both pleased! I asked the 10 year old if it tasted like a hot dog.
She gave me the rolled eyes and said , "No" - but then added it still tasted good and she liked it!

So there you have it for your next BBQ- If you have a vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free guest ( and who doesn't?) you don't have to run out and search for a vegan hot dog ( that is also gluten free for me) !!! Try these marinated carrots topped with sauerkraut, ketchup, or mustard. If you really want to be nice, open a can of black beans to serve on the side or make my incredibly delicious black beans in your Instant Pot. ( no soaking of beans and cooks at 45 minutes) 

I used Udi GLUTEN FREE Hot dog rolls which they stock in the freezer section of a local supermarket. I you can't find gluten free hot dog rolls, they sell other brands of gluten free hot dogs rolls on Amazon gluten free hot dog rolls .

Ingredients; 
8 organic carrots
1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave syrup
3-4 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of smoky paprika
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
** I used a Pyrex pie plate to roast

Directions: 
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Steam organic carrots for 10-15 minutes until they begin to be a little soft. While steaming-  mix the honey, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and smoky paprika and place in a small pyrex roasting dish. Remove the carrots from the steamer ( do not over cook- just slightly soft)  and add hot whole carrots to the small roasting dish and mix well. Allow to sit for half hour and then cover and roast at 425 for 15 minutes. Remove cover (or foil) and roast another 5 minutes.

Happy Memorial Day- How will you be celebrating??

  1. Looks very real :-) Can't get my husband to eat any cooked veggies (no problem with salad, just no cooked veggies), but I definitely love this idea.

    1. Shirley,
      They are surprisingly good but taste nothing like a hot dog- its the mustard, sauerkraut, and bun that give it the hot dog taste

  5. HI Judee,
    What a unique idea to use carrots and it looks very tasty. I love grilled carrots. We will just stay home and as long as it not raining or having a thunderstorm will grill out. We will probably make grass fed organic beef hamburger & organic hot dogs that my husband likes. Might put a few carrot and other vegetables on and grill them too. Have a healthy, happy & blessed Memorial Day weekend. Shared on twitter, G+, and pinned.

    1. thank you April. I think it's actually the toppings that do it- ketchup, mustard and sauerkraut on anything might taste like a hot dog

    1. I finally had a sandwich to share on Souper Sunday. Being gluten free, I don't eat a sandwich very often as the bread has lots of carbs and is mucho expensive
