Ingredients

Smoky Carrots

Blanket

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1-2 tbsp plant-based milk oat or soy work best

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 395°F/200°C. Wash and peel the carrots. Leave about 2"/5cm of the green tops on the carrot and cut away the rest (store the greens in your fridge for decoration later).
  • Mix all ingredients for the sauce, place the carrots in a baking dish, and pour the sauce over. → Brush each of the carrots with the sauce using a pastry brush. Bake the carrots for 15 minutes and turn them a few times while in the oven.
  • Take them out of the oven and let them cool down for about 30 minutes. There will be thick excess sauce in the baking dish, brush each carrot with it (for extra flavor). → Switch off the oven in the meantime but leave the oven door closed.
  • Cut the puff pastry in thin (0.2"/0.5cm) long strips. Take a carrot and roll one strip around the carrot. Use a second or third strip to cover the entire carrot, push the dough slightly together at the ends. Lay on a with parchment paper lined baking tray.
  • Heat the oven again to 395°F/200°C. Brush each carrot with the milk (optional) and bake for 15 minutes until golden.

Notes

  • Liquid Smoke is essential for smoky carrots. However, leave it out if you don't have it. You could swap the ketchup with a smoky barbecue sauce.
  • Most storebought puff pastries are vegan, but better check the label to be sure.
  • You can decorate the carrots with the green tops after baking.
  • The carrots are best if fresh. Leftovers can be stored for one day in the fridge and reheated in the oven.
