Hello fellow foodies! We have something extra special for you in this blog post. Vegan Smoked Salmon (Carrot Lox)!
I’ve personally never been a big fan of smoked salmon, but Josh said he used to love it! – so another reason to give it a go!
The liquid smoke is pretty essential in this recipe for giving it a nice smoky flavour. You can usually get this at a health food shop, cruelty free shop or buy it online! I blanched the carrots before I baked them – it helps give them a softer consistency.
If you leave this in the fridge for a couple of days it softens up a bit more and tastes even better!
You know what – this Vegan Smoked Salmon goes really well in salad too. You could try it on our Atlantis Salad. It also pairs really well with crackers or rice cakes.
Please share this recipe with anyone you know that will love it. Yay to having more vegan alternatives out there!
We made Vegan Smoked Salmon (Carrot Lox) - marinated carrot with some smoky goodness to pair perfectly with bagels and vegan cream cheese.
- 2 carrots peeled
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp liquid smoke
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 1/2 tsp peppercorns
- generous sprig of fresh dill
Pre heat oven to 180℃
Peel carrots thinly. I used a standard peeler for this. Once the carrot gets thinner it gets a bit harder to peel so I eat that bit! Steam the carrots for 5 minutes on a double boiler. Then add the carrots and all other ingredients in a baking dish and mix well. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes. Let cool and transfer to a container. Keep refrigerated. Enjoy on a bagel with vegan cream cheese!
