I'm always trying to figure out ways to use that nice pulp left over after juicing my vegetables. In the past, I've made baked carrot muffins, soup, and even a raw carrot cake and a raw burger mix. But I think my favorite way of using the nutritious pulp is to make raw crackers. Flaxseed crackers have many healthful benefits, but adding the veggie pulp just raises the bar a bit. Of course, a lot of the nutrients were in the juice I drank, but there is still quite a bit left including some great fiber.
These crackers turn out better when using a dehydrator.
Here are just a few of the benefits to consuming this type of food:
Here are the ingredients:
Put all ingredients in a Vitamix and process until well blended. Spread the mixture onto the Paraflexx lining on a dehydrator tray and spread evenly, about 1/4". Dehydrate at 105 degrees for approximately 10 - 12 hours. Transfer to a mesh tray and continue to dehydrate for an additional 2 - 4 hours or until firm and crisp. Cut into cracker shapes and store in an air-tight container or ziploc.
