Units Scale
  • 2 large, peeled carrots
  • 30 ml of chopped capers
  • 15 ml of caper brine or pickle juice
  • 30 ml of lemon juice
  • 5 ml of liquid smoke
  • 15 ml of olive oil
  • 1 heaped tsp of store-bought minced bottled garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 or 2 Baguettes sliced or bagels
  • 1 tub Vegan cream cheese
  • Fresh dill


  1. Fill a pot with water (enough to cover the carrots) and bring it to a rolling boil.
  2. Peel the carrots
  3. Lower it in the pot of boiling water.
  4. ONLY cook the carrots for 10 minutes, as you do not want to overcook it as it will get mushy.
  5. In the unlikely event that it’s not soft enough, keep boiling until your carrots are fork-tender but NOT all the way through.
  6. Meanwhile, use a large Ziplock bag and combine the capers, brine, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, liquid smoke, salt, and pepper in the bag.
  7. When carrots are done, take them out and add them to a pot of cold water as this will stop the cooking process.
  8. When you can handle the carrots, use a potato peeler, and start to shave off thin slices.
  9. Mix the sauce in the Ziplock bag well.
  10. Take the carrot slices and place them in the bag but make sure that they all well coated in your marinade.
  11. When you seal the bag, do your best and remove as much air from the bag as possible and leave it on a plate in the fridge.
  12. I left it for 2 days to ensure the flavor seeped into the carrots and get that nice smoky flavor.
  13. You do not have to leave it that long as I did, but make sure by taste-testing it prior to serving.


  1. Slice your baguette and liberally spread it with vegan cream cheese
  2. Take the strips and place them on top of the cheese spread
  3. Add some marinated capers and decorate with fresh dill.
