Nutribabe Not Dogs

Want to impress friends and family this summer? These NOT DOGS are the way to go!! They are relatively easy once you get the technique down and truly are reminiscent of hot dogs [but without the carcinogens]! These are perfect for when guests come over or to bring to a friends barbecue. I made and served thirty of them to many hungry twenty & thirty-something year old men and I apparently didn't make enough because they disappeared so fast!
Pair with your favorite toppings and you have a wonderfully healthy meal <3

Prep Time25 minsCook Time10 hrsTotal Time10 hrs 25 mins
 12 Carrots
 ½ cup Water
 ¼ cup Braggs Liquid Aminos
 1 tbsp Mustard
 1 tsp Oregano Flakes
 ½ tbsp Smoked Paprika
 ½ tsp Chipotle Powder [it adds a smoky flavor, but omit if you do not like any spicy]
 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
 1 tbsp Onion Powder
 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning Mix
 12 Whole Wheat Buns [or 1 large head of Romaine]
 Your choice of toppings [ketchup, mustard, guacamole, beans, slaw, etc]
1

Fill a very large pot half way with water. Bring to a boil.

2

As the water boils, peel the carrots. If desired, round the ends into a hot dog shape with the peeler.

3

When the carrots are peeled and the water is boiling, add the carrots to the pot and turn the heat down to a very gentle boil. Cook for 8 minutes or until the carrots can be pierced with a fork but are still firm. Drain in the sink and allow them to cool.

4

When the carrots are boiling, add the remaining ingredients to a bowl and mix until combined. Add the marinade to a long airtight container that fits the carrots or a large sandwich bag. Add the cooled carrots to the container or bag and shake until they are all coated.

5

Place in the fridge and allow them to marinate for at least 10 hours [you can marinate longer and get a stronger flavor].

6

After they have marinated and soaked up all the yummy the flavor, place on the grill and cook as you would normal hot dogs or veggies. Once they have grill marks, place the Not Dogs on your choice of whole wheat bun or lettuce boat and add desired toppings! I enjoy ketchup, mustard, guacamole, and a homemade cabbage slaw!

    Does this really take 10 hours?

    This would be great to serve at Amalea’s 3rd Birthday on July 6 OR 4th of July!!!

    Is that simply a carrot ?

      Hey Christine! It takes 10 hours to marinate if you want the real smoky flavor. I make them the day before I want to eat them and let them soak up all the flavor over night! Then I grill them the following day 😀 I hope Amalea enjoys them <3
