The other day I wondered what to do with the pulp after juicing 1 celery root, 2 apples, 1 golden beet, and a few carrots. I hate throwing out all of that material, although I have curbside composting. All that Michigan hard work and goodness! So, I decided to add it to a few other MI ingredients to make crackers in the dehydrator.
½ cup flax seeds soaked for 30 minutes in ½ cup water, then drained
2 cups juicer pulp
½ cup buckwheat seeds
½ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup red onion
1 large garlic clove
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
½ teaspoon salt
- Combine the onion and seeds in the food process and break them down.
- Add the other ingredients and break them down to desired texture. It should not be completely smooth.
- Spread the mixture on a dehydrator sheet; score the crackers if desired.
- Dehydrate at 115 degrees for several hours.
- Flip them and dehydrate until dry. You can leave them a bit moist if desired, but then store them in the refrigerator, and eat them within a few days.
If you have a dehydrator, I hope you give it a try. It may work in an oven at low temperature, but I’ve not tried it. I’ve found that as long as I get the wet to dry ratio right there are endless combination possibilities with this recipe.
