I’ve been juicing loads lately and I always feel slightly sad at the immense amounts of juice pulp that I inevitably end up throwing away as I am at a loss of what to do with it. I have started to freeze some of it, and then make my own crackers by adding some things into it.
Firstly I made the juice, I juiced 1/4 cucumber, 2 sticks of celery, 1 apple, 1 beetroot, 1 carrot, 1 orange, some ginger and lemon. Then from the pulp I made these crackers- although they have more of a bready doughy texture. I guess baking longer or dehydrating them might make them crisper?
My juicer is only a cheaper one so I guess the pulp is already quite wet not completely dry, so maybe adding less liquid would work for crispier crackers, but I actually quite like the texture of these.
Beetroot + Orange Juice Pulp CrackerBread
2 cups Juice pulp leftover from juicing, really you could you use any flavour combination you desire.
1/2 cup of flax or chia seeds ( I have tried it with both and liked it)
1/2 cup of water (Adjust depending on how wet your pulp is)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
Sprinkle of salt/herbamere
I left this to sit for around 15 minutes so the chia/flax binded the mixture then I spread it thinly on parchment paper and baked at 180 for 35-45 minutes. Watch it carefully from 25 minutes onwards as it does have a tendency to burn quite quickly.
