I did not invent carrot sausages, there are many recipes on the Internet that have inspired me to season them as I season my vegan sausages. And I have to say they taste heavenly and you don't miss sausages anymore. We’ve already had them as hot dogs with large carrots.

How do I make vegan sausages in a blanket?
Start by mixing the water with the yeast and maple syrup.
In another bowl, stir the almond butter and the water until creamy.
Now weigh all dry ingredients, except for the salt, and put them in a mixing bowl and stir them.
Add the moist ingredients to the dry and knead with a dough hook for about 7 min. Add the salt and knead again for about 3 min.
Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and put it in a warm place and leave it for 90 min. Beat the dough once after 45 minutes to let the air escape.
After 90 minutes, put the dough on a floured surface and divide the dough into 4 parts.
Now roll out in a circle, about 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. And divide the circle into triangles like a cake. Just look at how big you cut them so you can wrap the carrots in them but you can still see the tops of the carrots.
Baby Carrot Sausages
Prepare the baby carrots the night before.
Put the baby carrots in a steamer and steam them for about 15 minutes or until soft. They should not be too soft as they are still marinating and baking. I always do a test with a knife, if the carrots give a little resistance when I stab them with the knife, they are perfect.
Prepare the marinade, mix all the ingredients and place in a large bowl with a lid with the carrots and shake well. It's best to leave the carrots in the fridge overnight.
Heat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
Now take a triangle and place a baby carrot on top and wrap it up as if you were making a crescent roll. Continue with the remaining carrots. Place them all on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
If you still have dough left, just roll it up as crescents and bake it with the carrots.
Brush the dough with a little Aquafaba or almond milk and bake the pieces for about 10 minutes until they are golden brown.
Which dough goes best with these carrot sausages?
For a wfpb alternative, I make the dough myself. If you want to use purchased dough, make sure that the crescent dough is vegan; just read the ingredients.
Can you prepare these vegan sausages in a blanket in advance?
You can also prepare the dough an evening before and after the 90 min rise just put it in the fridge and remove from the fridge about 2 hours before you want to bake the next day and then continue as described.
How can I store baked vegan sausages in a blanket?
You can simply store them in the refrigerator in a closed container or freeze them.
How can you warm up vegan sausages in a blanket?
You can heat them in the microwave or in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
