A Vegetarian twist on a BBQ Classic

BBQ has been a long-standing favorite of mine and summertime sure seems to bring with its arrival, the faintest scent of barbecue. Since transitioning to a plant-based diet a few years back, BBQ has been my most missed flavor.  We have definitely used creativity to implement classic favorites into a plant-based diet and believe me when I tell you not all of them have been successful or palatable for that matter.

Processed veggie burgers aren’t really my thing and homemade veggie burgers can be time-consuming to make before a last-minute gathering so the carrot dog found its way into my top favorite creative classics with a twist. Yup, carrot dogs are just as they sound! A cooked carrot on a hot dog bun of your choice with whatever fixin’s your heart desires. And they couldn’t be more simple!

• Buy a bag or a bunch of large organic carrots

• Buns of your choice

• Onions, sauerkraut, cucumbers, lettuce, sweet peppers, whatever sounds delectable to you!

Lets be honest, it’s all about the right texture:

• Wash carrots and cut each carrot in half (vertically)

• Boil carrots for near an hour or until soft

• Drizzle olive oil over carrots and place directly on grill rack or lightly coat a cast iron pan and place carrots side by side, flipping until evenly charred, or to your liking.

• Put that carrot on a bun and dress it up like its going somewhere fabulous (your stomach is pretty fabulous, right? I hope you said yes).  The more color the better!

• Add a side of hickory, maple baked beans, a crisp green summer salad, fresh fruit, and an ear of organically grown sweet corn. You’ll be just as happy as your fellow barbecuers and a lot more festive with your plate of vibrant color!
