Makes 1 dehydrator sheet of thick bread, 2 dehydrator sheets of thin crackers
Reminiscent of “real” olive-rosemary bread but pleasantly mild. I made this because I am always looking for new ways to use pulp left over from juicing but also because I craved a very simple, mild-tasting bread/cracker raw-edible, one that I could nibble by itself or make into a bruschetta, or eat with a dip, versatile without being bland. Since I used beet pulp, mine turned out a pretty terracotta color, which I find psychologically soothing…Try with any mild veggies. The green pepper lightens up the flavor a bit (the olives and pumpkins seeds make it heavier.)
What to do with vegetable pulp left over from juicing? Especially when you’ve been juicing beets, ginger, garlic, celery, dandelion greens, apples and carrots? (That makes a delicious and highly detoxifying juice, by the way!) And what to do when your next door neighbor makes a hobby of growing and drying his own chili peppers? I found the answer at last.
My mother, who is a very non-raw gourmet, adores this.
This is an easy, flavorful bread than can be used to make sandwiches, to dip or to eat alone. This is an easy recipe for variations! Pictured with hummus and tomatoes and a side of spinach caesar salad.
Based on a recipe by Matt Amsden in RAWVolution. I’ve made a few changes: the paste to onion ratio has been boosted for a thicker consistency and the Nama Shoyu percentage is down for taste.
