I don’t have a juicer – unfortunately. My friend Mary has one though and I’m blown away every time she makes me a juice: they are sooooo good! I feel energised and refreshed and could keep drinking and drinking all day long. Unfortunately a good juicer is so expensive that I don’t think I’ll get one in the near future. Until then, Mary has to make them for me whenever I visit her 🙂
And the best thing: even the pulp can be repurposed so there is no waste! When I first made crackers from the left over pulp I wasn’t too sure how they would turn out. Now I ask Mary to always save the pulp for me because these are actually the best crackers I have ever made! And so quick and easy!
What you need:
- about 2 cups juicer pulp
- 1 cup activated sunflower seeds
- 1/3 cup flax seeds
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1/3 cup sesame seeds
- Himalayan salt to taste (between 1/2 and 1 tsp for me)
- filtered water
- Put all the ingredients in a blender.
- Add water until you reach an easily pourable but not too runny consistency.
- Spread on your dehydrator sheets (or lined baking trays if you are using a normal oven).
- Dehydrate at 40° for about an hour.
- Cut up into squares (I use a pizza cutter) and put back into the dehydrator for a couple of hours (drying time depends on the water content and the thickness of the crackers).
- If you are dehydrating in the oven, use the lowest possible setting and stick a wooden spoon in the door so it stays open a little bit.
- Slather with your favourite spread and enjoy!
As always, be creative! Add nooch, herbs, pepper, chili, tamari, different seeds,… The possibilities are endless!
