  • 8 carrots hot dog sausage sized
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke flavouring seasoning
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika powder
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 8 hot dog buns


  • Using a peeler, peel the carrots, taking care to round the two ends and even make a few star-shaped notches (we want them to look like hot dogs/sausages as much as possible).
  • In an oven-safe bowl add the broth, cider, soy sauce, maple syrup, liquid smoke, paprika powder and garlic powder. Mix well and then add the carrot.
  • Marinate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 ˚F.
  • Place the bowl with carrots and marinade in the oven and cook covered for 40 minutes, uncover and cook for another 20 minutes.
  • Toast the buns.
  • Put a carrot in each bun and the condiments of your choice.
