Our fast and Easy Carrot Dogs are a healthy, plant-based alternative that’s made even better when served on a Silver Hills Bakery Sprouted Hot Dog Bun. The buns alone are packed with loads of nutrients—boasting 5 grams of protein, 14 grams of whole grains, and 4 grams of fibre in every bun! Complemented by the smokey, comforting flavour of these deliciously easy carrot dogs, this recipe tastes just like a traditional hot dog.
It’s totally fine to reach for a pack of veggie dogs for speedy summer picnics and spur-of-the-moment backyard barbecues. But if you’re home and craving an easy summer recipe for a healthy, whole-food meal, these carrot hot dogs are a fun and flavourful plant-based choice to enjoy with your family.
It’s also a fun and creative way to get your kids to eat their veggies! Even the most veggie skeptical kids can be converted to try carrots in the context of a dish they already know and love. With the power of this plant-based hot dog recipe, eating healthy can be fun! Most kids find absurdity hilarious—and what could be funnier than using a carrot to replace a hot dog?
The best part about this recipe is how easy it is to make. For health-seeking parents who don’t have a lot of time to make complicated, multi-ingredient recipes from scratch, this carrot hot dog recipe offers a feel-good, whole food, plant-based meal that’s fast, easy, and uses ingredients you likely have at home already. You’ll need to let the carrots marinate overnight, but with just the tiniest bit of planning, you can have a tasty healthy meal that’s fully cooked and ready to eat in less than 10 minutes! Top it with your favourite toppings and you’ll have a tasty, healthy meal that everyone can enjoy.
