Juicing is great – but what to do with leftovers?

6 Mar

So you are juicing every day (or every other day? Once a week?) like me and don’t know what to do with pulp or leftovers?

Here are my few solutions.

If you use carrots – juice them first, take this pulp away and use it for

-baking cookies (use apple pulp as well);

-veggie burgers;

-thick soups (never tried, but I’d add it to lentil soup)

Lately I’m juicing fennel bulb, and all the fennel that is left simply is not possible to use fresh. So I collected the fennel from 2 bulbs, dehydrated it (temperature under 40 C to make sure it’s “live”) – for about 8 hrs. Then I milled it in a coffee grinder, collected in a jar, stored in the refrigerator for better times. It is a very fine powder, I think I’ll use just a bit for anything I will be cooking.

Hope this works for you too!

    We are lucky we are raising chickens and feed the leftovers to them. Makes great chicken food.

    I used the carrot fibers in my home made oat bars. It had to be refrigerated of course and it was a hit. You have to dry them first before adding. I will try it in soups next.
