Vegan Carrot Dogs

I'm sure you have seen these on other blogs, And I'm not taking credit for the invention of these wonderful things, These are just my take on the Carrot Hotdog, I bet if you made these for the kids they wouldn't know the difference. A much healthier alternative to processed "meat"

med/large Carrots peeled and shaped 
2 tsp Liquid Smoke
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
Dairy free butter
vegetable oil
Onions sliced

In a pot over high heat bring carrots to a boil and check them regularly by inserting a knife in to them, They will be ready when the knife slides in easy but still with a little give.
Fry up the onions in some oil and butter till golden brown and set aside, 
When cooked put the carrots into a cold water bath to chill while you set about making the marinade,
In a long container or zip lock bag add the liquid smoke, onion powder, garlic powder, water, soy sauce and brown sugar mix well and add the carrots to it cover and refrigerate overnight or 2 days.
When you are ready to cook them, heat a pan over medium/high heat and cook them turning to brown them on every side, You can add some of the marinade to them while cooking but not a lot at a time as they wont brown just stew. I used mustard on my buns which gave it a nice savory flavor.  Enjoy!  =)
