5. Once the potatoes are cool to the touch, add them to a large mixing bowl with the diced veggies and the dressing and mix well. 

6. Adjust seasonings to taste. 

7. Pop the finished potato salad into the fridge and let it sit for at least 2 hours (overnight is best). 

8. Before serving, sprinkle the top with a little smoked paprika for style. Enjoy!

THE BEST VEGAN CARROT DOGS

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE 

INGREDIENTS: 

For the dogs

  • 6-8 large carrots

For the marinade:

  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive or sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup Bragg's liquid aminos (soy sauce and tamari work too!)
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. liquid smoke (hickory style is best!)
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

DIRECTIONS: 

1. Peel and cut the carrots to fit the size of buns you're using. 

2. Boil the carrots for 10-20 minutes (depending on the size of your carrots), until soft, but not mushy. 

3. Drain the carrots and immediately run cold water over them to stop the cooking process. 

4. While the carrots are boiling, make the marinade by whisking all of the ingredients together in a bowl until combined. 

5. Once the carrots are cooled, put them into a ziplock bag and pour the marinade in. 

6. Pop 'em in the fridge for AT LEAST 18 hours. The longer the better! I usually let mine marinade for 24-48 hours. Make sure to flip the bag every so often to evenly coat the carrots. 

7. When you're ready to cook your dogs, either grill 'em or sautè 'em until they're heated through and a little bit crispy on the outside (or however you prefer 'em!). #norules 

BOOM. 

Heavenly, mother-effin carrot dogs! 

Go make some ASAP! 

Have a delicious summer!
