hi! what a funny coincidence, I just made HeathyPace (from Raw Freedom Community Forum)'s Pumpkin Pie Spice Bars with leftover carrot pulp from juicing, but my version ended up tasting like a rawvegan carrot cake. Here was my version:
3 c carrot pulp
1 1/2 c pecans (*I used almonds, but would have used pecans if I had them)
1 c pitted packed dates (*mine didn't process too well, I should have soaked them first)
2 tbs maple syrup
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp salt (*I didn't use salt)
In a food processor, crush the pecans down to crumbs. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
Spread into a pan and chill.
Maple Cashew Frosting
1 cup cashews
� cup maple syrup (*I used less, but still too much - it doesn't even need maple syrup, it made the frosting too sweet for my taste).
� cup water
Blend until smooth and creamy in a high speed blender. Spread over pumpkin bars. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon (optional). Chill. Layered Cake: Spread half of the cake "batter" into a pan. Spread with 1/2 of the frosting. Spread the rest of the cake on top and spread with remaining frosting. See?! So simple! :)
I actually prefer them frozen, as a savory frozen treat. I was really happy with the icing. My food processor was too small for the recipe, but overall I think they turned out pretty good!
i freeze my carrot pulp for special occasions. I like russell james' carrot cake - but without so much nutmeg. I also found a recipe on here that i want to try soon - for a mock tuna. It's probably the same one as mentioned above. There's a crazy carrot bread recipe on here too... haven't tried it yet but it looks great! And, there's a Carrot Soup recipe you could probably try out. Just suggestions :) I love carrot juice!!!
Pulp from the juicer will decompose really quickly in the garden if you have one (or know someone who does). Dig a hole about 8 inches deep, dump the pulp, cover the hole. This will enrich the soil massively. Just don't plant anything in that spot for about two months.
Veg broth is another great use. Boil, strain, and use instead of water in anything you want. Though technically not raw, it would have more nutrients than plain water.
Any veggie or nut pulp is good dehydrated and then ground into flour in a coffee grinder. Keep the powder in the fridge and it'll last forever. You can use it for pates, crackers, sauces, soups, bread, cookies, etc. I sometimes juice or make nut milk just because I want the pulp!
With things like carrots & zucchini you can make cookies & breads in your dehydrator.
I just think of the flavors & ingredients in the original recipes then substitute them with raw ones. For flour I like to use a mixture of almond flour, ground flax seeds, & ground oats.
With the more vegi type stuff you can throw it in your green smoothies, make crackers with it, use it in soups, top your salads, include in recipes like raw burgers or loafs the possibilities are endless!
I use all kinds of vegetable pulp to make crackers, you can use just carrot or a mixture. I mix the pulp with a little salt, a handful of chia seeds (to stick it all together) and buckwheaties if I want them to have extra crunch. Then I spread them about 1/8 thick on teflex sheets and dehydrate until they can be flipped, usually overnight. Then I flip them directly onto the mesh sheets and score them. I then dry them the rest of the day, that usually does the trick. YOu can add all sorts of things to flavor them: nuts and seeds, herbs, dried tomatoes, spices. Get creative. I do love them with just a little salt though!
Love it, I'm exited to try it! What kind of maple syrup did you used? I went to the market to buy maple syrup and I didn't find it! Not one! I live in a small island where vegans are so rare!! Sometimes is very difficult to find products that I need. Do you use regular or diet? I don't know.. So please a little help, thanks! ;-p
