Carrot Dogs

Adapted from

6 hot dog sized carrots, peeled and ends removed

1/4 c Bragg’s liquid aminos

1/4 c water

1 T seasoned rice vinegar

1/2 T apple cider vinegar

dash of liquid smoke

1/2 t minced garlic

1/4 t ginger

1/8 t onion powder

freshly ground black pepper

6 buns and condiments

Combine all ingredients except carrots, buns, and condiments to make a marinade.  Heat the carrots in the marinade until the carrots are fork tender.  This takes about 8 minutes at a slow boil or about 5 minutes in the microwave.  Refrigerate the carrots in the marinade for at least 24 hours.  Grill the carrots or sauté with some of the marinade, turning every few minutes, until the carrots have darkened or have grill marks.  Serve in buns with your favorite condiments!
