What to do with Leftover Juicer Pulp: Make Fritters!

What to do with Leftover Juicer Pulp: Make Fritters!

One of the things I feel guilty about on a daily basis is throwing away juice pulp after I prepare my morning green juice. The pulp is simply the fibers of the vegetables and can be used for so many things! Today, I decided to show you a way to put veggie juice pulp to good use, and in a low-fat, few-ingredient way. Enjoy!

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

Instructions

Combine all the ingredients until evenly combined. It will hold together well when formed into patties.

Place patties on a greased saucepan and cook on both sides over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. The patties will hold together but will be soft. It can be crumbled over a salad or eaten in a sandwich.

I paired mine with fresh kale and ketchup and ate them in a whole-wheat tortilla. Mmmm!

Enjoy!

Bon Appetit!

Great recipe,thanks. I'm going make these fritters they sound delicous.
I use my my apple,carrot,kale,and ginger pulp in my version of Carrot plus cake.
It's tastes great and the cake is super moist,it's just the general carrot cake recipe with the pulp thrown into it.Plus since it's cake my kids get their veggies without a debate.
I put my green pulp in soup or stew or casseroles. It's extra flavor and healthier.
What I can't use in food,I use in compost.Putting the fruits and veggies right back where
they came from makes your future fruits and veggies grow better.

Isn't the pulp the important bit of fruits and vegetables, you might as well have a sugary drink when you take it out.

Years ago we bought an expensive juicer. My first reaction when seeing the amounts of fruits and vegetables necessary to produce a much smaller amount of juice was what a waste. I had used my good old Osterizer blender for years to make shakes with apples, oranges, celery, chopped carrots, fresh baby spinach, whatever combined to make a great tasting drink. And every morning that 20+oz. drink was my breakfast and kept me full until mid-afternoon. My husband watched but never sampled my morning shakes. Then we got the juicer, which had too many working parts that needed to be taken apart and washed, not to mention the guilt of throwing away what I consider the most important part of the fruit or vegetable. After the initial thrill wore off (I made my husband the official juicer washer), my husband joined me in the morning shakes and he loves them. We used to compost the fiber, but there's only so much fiber you can compost and use as fertilizer. The juice is drunk in less than two minutes, but the shake containing everything but seeds takes a long time to digest and you're getting the whole food. Juicers, smoocers. Hustle on down to a store and get a good quality blender. Mine is over 30 years old and going strong, even though I once left a wooden spoon inside and the blades gave it a good clipping. No, we did not drink that batch and consider it fiber.

What a wonderful idea thanks for sharing.

Better yet, use a blender and drink the pulp with your health drink. Or you can use the pulp as a sauce thickener. I sometimes freeze mine and add it when I make chinese rice jook.

Good idea! I always feel bad about throwing mine into the compost when there's still usable food value. Not that composting is bad, but eating it is better when it's still usable food.
