Bucha Carrot Dogs

Don’t forget to follow my Instagram, @thekellydiet, for more recipes not posted on the blog! Like these ‘Pizza Dough Cookies’:)


Now, you’ve seen my carrot dogs before.

I’ve switched it up a bit to make them even healthier and more delicious by cooking them in kombucha!

I used Brew Dr. Kombucha’s new flavor, Vanilla Oak 🙂

Some things I would recommend:

  • Make sure you cook it until it is soft throughout. At my second attempt of the carrot dog I didn’t simmer it long enough.
  • I suggest marinating it for at least 4 hours. Some recipes say 2 hrs but I think the longer the better.
  • Have fun with it! I have used an eggplant, flatout & a sweet potato as a bun for it. All were delicious!

Bucha Carrot Dogs

  • Servings: 2-4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print




  • 4 large carrots
  • 1/2 c vegetable broth
  • 1/2 c kombucha
  • 1/4 c Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • 1 T dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric


  1. Cut off ends of carrots.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients (your marinade) to a large pot & stir. Add in your carrots and spin carrots in your marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight to marinate.


  1. After carrots have been marinated, place pot on the stove and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and let sit for 20 minutes or until soft through.
  2. Add carrots to a buddha bowl or serve in a bun of choice & add your favorite hot dog toppings. Enjoy!

Bun Ideas: I have used a roasted eggplant, Flatout’s Rosemary & Olive Oil flat, & a baked sweet potato. All were excellent!

Happy eating 🙂
