2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic powder (or 1/2 clove garlic, minced)
Dash of liquid smoke
Pepper, to taste
4 whole-grain vegan hot dog buns
Hot dog toppings as desired (ketchup, BBQ sauce, mustard, relish, etc.)
Fill a large pot half full of water and bring to boil. Lower the heat to medium and cook the carrots until you can barely pierce through them with a fork. (You can experiment here--some may like them less firm.) Be careful not to cut the carrots when testing! Combine all the other ingredients together in a plastic container or baggie to make the marinade. Place the cooked carrots inside, shake up, and set aside to marinate for at least 3 hours. You can marinate for up to a few days—we marinated ours for about 4 hours, and they turned out very flavorful.
When you’re ready to serve, pour the carrots and marinade into a large pan on the stovetop, or grill on medium heat, for 5 to 10 minutes, rotating periodically until carrots are heated all the way through. Place on a hot dog bun, add the toppings of your choice, and enjoy!

A Rabbit Noticed My Condition
I was sad one day and went for a walk;Rabbit_in_Field.jpg
I sat in a field.
A rabbit noticed my condition
and came near.
It often does not take more than that
to help at times--
To just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing,
ao full of love
that they don’t
They just gaze with their
