How to make crackers from juice pulp

 juice pulp crackers

By Nicole Klinakis

Now that we’re all working from home, the kitchen has become a total hot spot in our household. As we shuffle between the bedroom and living room wondering what snack to eat next, my daily juices inspired a new challenge – upcycling. Instead of dumping the pulpy goodness, I ventured into the land of juice pulp crackers. Pair it with hummus or guac for an equally tasty and nutritious snack!

Ingredients:

  • Leftover juice pulp from your juicer
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Turmeric
  • Flour or almond meal

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  2. Grab your juice pulp and pop it into a food processor with a splash of olive oil, some salt, pepper and any other spices you like. I went with turmeric for an anti-inflammatory boost.
  3. To get the right consistency you need to add some flour - I chose almond meal for a GF alternative. Add it to the mixture tablespoon by tablespoon until it resembles a dough-like mixture.
  4. When ready, I sandwich it between two sheets of baking paper and begin to roll it out until it’s half a centimetre thick.
  5. Peel off the top sheet and slide the mixture onto a baking tray. Grab a knife or pizza cutter and lightly create a grid (once baked, it’ll be easier to break into pieces).
  6. Pop it in the oven until they start to turn golden and crisp (approx 30 mins).
  7. Once done, leave in the oven to cool. This will dry them out completely for a nice crunch.
  8. Plate up with your favourite dip!
