As I mentioned last week, I’ve been juicing more often lately. One of the problems I’ve been dealing with is what to do with all of the pulp that’s leftover after making a juice. Throwing it away seems so wasteful. I could put it all in the freezer for and use it the next time I make vegetable stock, but where’s the fun in that? In addition to sending me the juicer to review, Tribest sent me an amazing dehydrator to try too, so it seemed fitting that I use my leftover pulp in something raw. I experimented with raw crackers, and I’m pretty happy with the results. These crackers make a great snack with raw cashew cheese or hummus. It also makes a great flatbread, if you’re in the mood for a raw sandwich.
I haven’t tried to make these in the oven, but I think if you spread the mixture onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and then bake it on the oven’s lowest setting, you’ll see results similar to dehydration.
Green Juice Pulp Crackers
- 1 cup green juice pulp tightly packed (you can use the pulp leftover from my Favorite Green Juice recipe)
- 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon tamari
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 cup water
Mix everything together in a food processor until thoroughly combined.
Spread the mixture evenly onto a dehydrator tray lined with a non-stick sheet.
Score into crackers or flatbread shapes.
Dehydrate for 5 hours at 115.
Flip and remove from the sheet. Dehydrate on unlined tray for another 2 or 3 hours, until the crackers are dried throughout.
Break the crackers apart on the score lines. Enjoy!
