8 medium carrots (peeled and trimmed to hot dog bun length)
1 cup Tamari, gluten free, reduced sodium
2 tbsp liquid smoke
2 tbsp vegan Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp Maple syrup
2 tbsp Tomato paste, organic

In a medium saucepan, whisk together liquid ingredients (tamari, liquid smoke, worcestershire sauce, maple syrup, tomato paste, and water).
Add all 8 peeled carrots and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a medium simmer and cook carrots until barely fork-tender, 8-10 minutes depending on thickness.
