Found this recipe on line. It's made with carrots. I had doubts. I can't believe how great it tastes.
2 cups water
2 tbsp. liquid smoke
1/4 cup tamari
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup veggy broth
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp. maple syrup
Heat water to a boil. Add carrots, cover and simmer for about 8-10 minutes or until fork tender. Do not over cook.
Combine the marinade ingredients.
When carrots are cooked, drain and run under cold water to stop cooking process.
Add carrots and marinade in air tight container for 6-24 hours.
Place carrots and a few tbsp. marinade in a hot non stick pan, cook allowing to carmelize, until they are a nice brown colour.
