If you know anything about making carrot juice, then you know that carrot juice production means carrot pulp production. And a lot of it.
You could throw away the leftover pulp—or you could make these awesome, healthy, cheap crackers!
(You should choose to make the crackers.)
I don’t know what I love more: 1) that this recipe utilizes a “waste product” and can be made packaging-free or 2) that this recipe is so cheap. I spend less than $3 on flax seeds, lemon, and spices for each batch—where can you find such a large quantity of raw, organic, grain-free crackers for less than $50?!
In my kitchen.
They’re free if you come over for tea.
Carrot Pulp Crackers
[raw, gf, vegan, grain free, zero waste]
12C carrot pulp
3C ground flax seed
1T curry powder
2T coriander seeds
1T onion powder
3T lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together in a very large bowl. Place mixture onto dehydrator sheets and either flatten evenly with your hands or roll out with a rolling pin. Score with a butter knife to your preferred cracker size. Dehydrate until crunchy (12-18 hours depending on thickness), checking once after 6 hours to break crackers apart.
Fills three full sheets (i.e. it makes a ton).
I make a batch every couple of weeks to keep them on hand at all times. I enjoy these crackers as a side of “toast” with quiche, paired with sunflower butter, and as a flavorful base for veggies and cheese. Anyone else have a staple vegetable pulp recipe to share?
