  • 2 large carrots
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 sprigs fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • 1 teaspoon nori flakes


  • Using a veggie peeler, shave the carrots into carrot ribbons.
  • In a small pot, add the rice vinegar, water, liquid smoke, soy sauce, lemon juice, and salt. Bring it to a boil. Add the carrot ribbons. Let it simmer for 3 minutes with the lid on.
  • Prepare a pickling jar, add fresh dill, capers, the carrot ribbons with the hot pickling liquid as well as nori flakes.
  • Let it cool off for a bit, then place it in the fridge and let the carrot ribbons soak up the flavor at least overnight.
  • The next day, you can enjoy it with e.g. bagels and vegan cream cheese!
