You won’t miss hot dogs at the next Barbecue. You can even bring these in a container to throw on your friends grill!

Thanks to our Green Star members Beverly & John for this awesome, “Tastes like a hot dog!” recipe as demonstrated here on BeGreenWithAmy YouTube.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted vegetable broth (store-bought, or homemade vegetable broth)
  • 1/2 cup tamari soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup liquid aminos
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 cup date paste
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder 
  • medium carrot (peeled, skinny ends trimmed, carrots cut the length of the buns)
  • hot dog buns (whole wheat)
  • mustard
  • ketchup
  • onions
  • relish

Toss carrots in sauce then transfer all to the Instant Pot. For smaller carrots, turn the Instant Pot on manual for 4 minutes, then quick release. For larger/thicker carrots, cook on manual for 6 minutes and then quick release.

You can sear them on a grill pan or grill (optional).

Beverly likes to save her left over marinade in the refrigerator.
