4 medium carrots cut to bun length

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup water

1 tbsp sesame oil

2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp liquid smoke

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp salt

4 hot dog buns whole wheat


**Let's Cook the Carrots

Fill a large flat skillet or pan with water and bring to a boil.

Cut the carrots to bun length.

Reduce the water to a simmer and add the carrots. Cook for 10 minutes or until the carrots are fork tender but still firm. Cook the spare carrot parts, too, or eat them raw.

**Let's Prepare the Marinade

Prepare the marinade by adding apple cider vinegar, water, sesame oil, tamari, garlic powder, liquid smoke, black pepper and salt to a sealable container large enough to fit 4 carrots. You can also use a ziplock bag.

Add the carrots to the marinade and shake to coat. Let them soak for 4 hours or overnight if you like a stronger flavor.

**Let's Cook the Carrot Dogs

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the carrot dogs on a baking sheet spaced apart.

Cook the carrot dogs for 10 minutes or until they are sizzling. You can also put the carrots in a bun, wrap with a paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds.

Put the carrots on a hotdog bun and add with your favorite hotdog toppings like ketchup, mustard, relish, chili, onions, jalapeños, etc.
