Easy Vegan Carrot Lox

Easy Vegan Carrot Lox is something that I have been wanting to make for the longest time ever since i tried it at a cafe years ago! instead of salmon, this recipe is made with carrots, which i think is so cool! you’re going to love this recipe.

on top of the carrot lox, i made an easy yogurt schmear made with vegan coconut yogurt.

you will want a VERY thick yogurt for this. the best that i can recommend is coco june.

that’s already a thick yogurt, but i even placed it in a cheese cloth to drain some of the excess liquid to make it thicker.

then, i added a little bit of lemon juice, fresh dill, sea salt, garlic and onion powder. super simple but incredibly delicious.

the carrots are to be roasted for about 48-50 minutes, or even a little longer if you want them super soft. i find that about 50 minutes is perfect because they’re soft but still a bit sturdy.

you don’t want the carrots to be too mushy that you cannot slice them, but again, 52-55 minutes should be fine and get them a bit softer than mine!

the carrots, after cut into very thin slices will marinate in a homemade brine for a few hours-overnight.

Easy Vegan Carrot Lox is really easy to make and the ingredients are incredible. while the carrots don’t totally mimic smoked salmon, i think that i did a good job with the ingredients!

the flavors are really outstanding, bold, but not overpowering. there’s no added salt to the carrots or brine because the liquid aminos are pretty salty.

this way, you can still enjoy all of the flavors but it feels reminiscent of it’s non-vegan counterpart.

you can keep the marinated lox stored in an airtight container 3-4 days, and beyond that, i’m not sure what it will be like.

if possible, i do recommend letting the freshly roasted and sliced carrots marinate in the brine overnight. this will create a greater depth of flavor and better texture.

however, a few hours works too! whatever you can do :).
