boil or steam the whole peeled organic carrots

I got this recipe from a lovely woman that I met at Summerfest 2012.  Penny told me her sister-in-law originally made these as a joke.  Penny and husband liked them so much, they started eating them regularly.  I made them last night for the first time, LOVE THEM.  They are meant to be served on a whole wheat roll with "the works" but I served them as a side dish.  Next time I'll try the rolls.


4 carrots - cut bun length
1 Tbsp. sesame oil or olive - I do not use any oil
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. tamari
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. liquid smoke
pepper to taste


Boil water, add carrots, cook till you can pierce with for, run cold water on them, drain. (or steam)

Mix together the marinade and add the carrots for a few hours or up to several days.

Grill or may heat in 350 degree oven 10 - 15 minutes.

Penny says to save the marinade and boil more carrots so that you can have a continuous supply.  We both use the Forman electric grill.  It's sooooooooo easy.
