We love these!! We have made them several times. I haven't eaten a meat hot dog in years...its a texture thing. These are a delicious and healthy alternative!!
Marinated the carrots for 24 hours. Overall taste was excellent, except some thought they were a bit too vinegary. Most guests were afraid to taste them. Notes: They tasted much better on a bun and served with mustard. The second day, they were even better when reheated. On the third day, enjoyed leftovers cut in 8ths and reheated with a can of vegetarian baked beans. Would try them again for vegans.
Tastes like a carrot in a bun...
I loved these. I served them for a BBQ party we had, and the only person brave enough to try them was a teenage girl. She loved them as well. The texture was a little off, obviously, but the flavor was fantastic. Will definitely do these again! We wish could add a picture because they look so much like the real thing.
Just tried these for the first time, and we were so impressed. They're delicious and easy. As we experiment further, we'll likely steam these a bit longer and marinate them overnight (we only had time to do the minimum 3 hours.) Thanks for the great recipe!
Ok, I tried these out on my family: two kids and a hot dog loving hubby and I'd say they were a success! I steamed and marinated the carrots the night before, so all I had to do day of was grill up the dogs for a super-fast dinner. My eldest child, who prefers raw veggies to cooked ones, took a few bites and was done. But the toddler gobbled it up and the hubby went back for seconds. Will definitely make them again. Note on the cooking time: I steamed the carrots for a few minutes longer than the recommend time. I wanted them to be soft enough for my kids. It was more like 16-17 minutes.
I am obsessed with these carrot dogs. They are so packed with flavor and so much tastier than fake meat hot dogs. An awesome veggie option for BBQs and cook outs.
