2 large carrots- peeled, with the ends cut off
1/4 c Bragg's liquid aminos- or soy sauce
1/4 c water
1 T seasoned rice vinegar
1 T sesame oil
1/2 T apple cider vinegar
Dash liquid smoke
1 clove garlic- minced
1/4 t dried ginger
1/4 t black pepper
1/8 t granulated onion powder
Olive oil cooking spray
2 whole wheat hot dog buns
Hot dog toppings
Directions:   1. Boil carrots for approximately 6 to 8 minutes, or until fork tender but not mushy. After removing the carrots from the boiling water, run them under cold water to stop the cooking process.

2. While the carrots are cooking, whisk together the Bragg’s, water, vinegars, sesame oil, liquid smoke, garlic, and seasonings.

3. Combine the carrots and the marinade in a zipper gallon-size bag (I actually used two in case of a leak), or in an air-tight container. Shake gently until the carrots are coated with the marinade. Place the carrots in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.

4. To cook the carrots, spray a medium skillet with olive oil cooking spray. Turn the heat to medium and place the carrots and about 1/2 cup of the marinade into the skillet. Heat the carrots for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until warm.
