Image result for bbq carrot dogs

I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these for the first time yesterday.  Maybe you will be, too!


  • 8 medium carrots
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 tbl. reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tbl mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 8 hot dog buns, toasted, if desired
  • ketchup, mustard, relish and or sauerkraut


  1. Peel carrots and trim to fit the length of your hot dog buns.  Bring a couple inches of water to a boil in a large pot with a steamer basket.  Add carrots, cover and steam until barely cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk broth, vinegar, soy cause (or tamari), mustard, garlic powder and paprika in a sealable 1-gallon plastic bag.  Add the carrots, seal and place the bag in the refrigerator, keeping the carrots in a single layer.  Marinate for at least 3 hours or up to 1 day, turning twice.
  3. Preheat grill to high or heat a grill pan over high heat.
  4. Remove the carrots from the marinade.  Grill the carrots, turning once or twice, until they’re hot and have grill marks, about 5 minutes.  Serve on buns with your favorite condiments.

We really enjoyed this.  I’m not even a huge fan of carrots and am weird about textures. Definitely give this recipe two thumbs up!
