What can you do with the pulp from your juice? Be creative! Use it in baking cakes, muffins and breads. Vegetable pulp is great for soups and sauces. Small amounts can be mixed with your pet’s food as a fiber supplement. Carrot-apple pulp makes a refreshing facial mask. At the very least, use it as compost – nature’s best fertilizer!
Here’s a simple and delicious recipe you can re-use your carrot pulp in (note: this is not vegan):
1/2 cup. bran
1/2 cup. carrot pulp
1/2 cup. whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2 tbs. vegetable oil
1/4 cup. molasses
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup. soy milk OR fresh apple juice
1/4 cup. raisins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Stir together oil, molasses, egg, vanilla and liquid until smooth. Add bran and carrot pulp, and let stand for a few minutes to absorb moisture.
Combine remaining ingredients and add to bran mixture. Stir until moistened. Add more liquid if too dry. Fill oiled muffin tins 3/4 full and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Makes 8.
