This recipe for Vegan Smoked Salmon is a great alternative to traditional lox. Thin strips of carrot are marinated in sauces and spices to make the perfect compliment to a bagel or served as a healthy vegan appetizer with crackers. Perfect for a Christmas breakfast or party food.
Preheat the oven to 350f (175c) and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Peel the carrots and roll them in lots of salt, then place on the baking tray and bake for 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until soft. Allow them to cool.
Rub the salt off the cooled carrots, then use a vegetable peeler to cut the carrots into ribbons.
In a medium bowl, combine the carrot smoked salmon marinade ingredients.
Add the carrot lox strips to the bowl of marinade and refrigerate overnight or a minimum of 30 minutes (the longer the better as it gives more time for the flavors to infuse the carrots).
Serve on a bagel with vegan cream cheese and top with a sprig of dill.
