roasted vegan carrot hot dogs

Just like hot dogs … but made with carrots! These roasted vegan hot dogs are a must-try!

Having a cookout? You’ll just roast these carrot vegan hot dogs in advance, and then quickly heat them up on the grill. Mmm!




  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut off the tips and stem ends of the carrots, forming 8-inch long carrots. Trim and sculpt the 8-inch carrots with a paring knife and vegetable peeler until about 7 inches in length with an even thickness, about 3/4-inch diameter max. (Use the carrot scraps for another use, such as in a salad or stir-fry. I often make a Thai-inspired carrot slaw!)
  2. Whisk together the ketchup, olive oil, mustard, vinegar, soy sauce, paprika, salt, and pepper. Place carrot hot dogs onto an unbleached parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet and brush with half of this sauce.
  3. Roast until well caramelized and fully cooked through, about 1 hour, rotating carrot hot dogs and brushing with the remaining sauce halfway through the roasting process. (It’s OK for these carrot hot dogs to have a slightly firm “al dente” texture. But please roast until you reach your personal desired texture!)
  4. Serve each in a hot dog bun with condiments of choice. One of my favorite topping combinations with these hot dogs is baby arugula + caramelized onion + Hass avocado!


Hint: For a cookout, roast these hot dogs a day in advance and chill. Spritz the chilled roasted vegan hot dogs with organic or all-natural cooking spray and grill over indirect heat until heated through.
