Yesterday I ate my solution to the carrot-dog attempts. I had tried all the marinades & didn't really like any of them. But I thought the Italian dressing idea was the best for me. But I'm no-oil so I bought the healthiest I could find, but don't think that was a good taste for a carrot dog. And I didn't like using oil. SO, my solution? The marinade I use is .... the sauerkraut and its juices! No clash of tastes with that. It worked really well, especially since I just cooked the sauerkraut at the end of the marinating process (a week). (Boil the carrot before marinating.)

Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.

Instead of boiling the carrots, I would try seasoning (maybe with Cajun Old Bay or Chili P and Smoked Paprika) and roasting the silly things. emoticon

I'm thinking of loading it up with some vegan chili...sounds awesome! : )))))
I don't like the idea of using fake meats and my family are not vegans (yet!).
It's nice to find recipes like this so that I can blend in a little better.

Yes, we were discussing carrot dogs elsewhere. Lots of fun, pretty easy. I reckon they need something like at least overnight in the marinade. And if you don't need to cook them straight away, don't worry, they'll keep in the marinade in the fridge for ages. I had some in there for 4 weeks.
Also it's fine to pan fry or barbecue them for the second stage. No need to overdo it or you'll dry them out, just warm them up and dry off the surface and they're done.

The recipe I used just called for marinating it in Italian Salad dressing. This one sounds good too; I will have to try this version.
