JUICE PULP CRACKERS
This is a great and easy way to use the pulp from vegetables juicing.
I don’t juice often because I don’t want too much fructose in my diet but it’s very hot here down under so felt like making a vegetable juice the other morning.
I don’t have a juicer but I’ve a Thermomix and then I strain the liquid through a nut milk bag.
So when I don’t juice, I make a smoothie that is very much “green juice” like 🙂 I blend it all up but don’t strain it. This way I also get the very healthy fibers that otherwise would be removed.
2 cups Vegetable pulp from juicer
1/4 cup Chia seeds
1/2 cup Quinoa flour (or other type of flour)
2 Tbsp Psyllium husk
3/4 cup Water
In a food processor blend juice pulp, chia seeds, flour and psyllium husks. Add some of the water and repeat until it’s wet enough to spread out.
You really want to purée the pulp to break up the fibrous threads as best you can but at the same time embrace the raw and hearty texture.
Spread out the mixture onto a baking sheet or greased tray.
Bake in the oven at 180 C (350 F) for anywhere between 30 – 40 minutes or until it’s dried up and crisp. You can also use a dehydrator for at least 6 hours.
Let the crackers cool and cut into squares.
This is probably the most successful crackers I’ve made and the easiest to make too, so I might have to juice more, that is vegetable juice 😉
