Juicer-Pulp Fritter Recipe.

Juicer with juicer pulpRecently, a friend of ours loaned us their juicer. When we went to set it up, we noticed the large pulp catcher and hesitated about juicing. What do we do with all that pulp? We could compost it but juicer-pulp is made up of normally edible food and we didn’t want to waste it. In the end, Jubbling juice-blocked us and we used our blender instead. Then I read about the juicer-pulp fritter recipe and I think we’re going to give the juicer another try.

The 20 minute juicer-pulp fritter recipe was submitted by Aylin on Glow Kitchen and here are the details:

Ingredients (6-8 patties):

  • 2 cups juice pulp (kale, carrots, chard)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Juicer-pulp fritter ingredients
Instructions: Mix until all of the ingredients are combined and then form them into patties. Place the patties in a greased saucepan over medium heat and cook each side 2-3 minutes.

In the GK article, the author suggests eating your juicer-pulp fritters in a sandwich or crumbled over a salad. When we try the recipe, we’ll probably add an egg to help hold the patties together.

A quick Google search will net you quite a few recipes for juicer-pulp. A nice bonus of the juicer-pulp fritter recipe is that you can feed your whole family with it: parents get the juice, kids (and pets) get the fritters. [Glow Kitchen via Ecorazzi]

The 2 Ingredient Cookie Taste Test

2 Ingredient Cookie TestYesterday, we posted an article about the 2 Ingredient Cookie recipe from The Burlap Bag. The two ingredients are bananas and oats and the recipe is so close to foolproof, I had to make some and test them out on three cookie experts. So I made a batch and in an effort to suck-up to the judges, mixed-in some chocolate chips. Here are the results:

  1. Kid A: Too chewy. I can’t eat the whole thing.
  2. Kid B: It’s not bad. I could eat more but just not now.
  3. Kid C: Don’t like bananas. Not going to try it. (my l’il commie)

Personally, I loved the 2 Ingredient Cookies and I could even do without the chocolate chips. It’s a great, “on-the-go” and healthy snack you can stuff in your pocket as you’re leaving the house. Skip the Snickers/Granola/PowerBar and give the 2 Ingredient Cookies a shot. I may try this recipe with applesauce next time and see how it goes. You’ll be the first to hear about my success or failure.
