"Zero Waste" Crackers

zero waste crackers

I really love juicing but I always hate throwing away the pulp. Not only is it crammed full of fibre, which is so beneficial for digestive and overall health but it also simply feels downright wasteful. I try to approach my cooking from a zero waste perspective so constantly throwing away juice pulp didn't sit well with me- no matter how much my compost heap reaped the benefits! As a result, these seeded crackers were born. Despite the long cooking time (when you can get on with other chores), they're easy to make and the result is a satisfying cracker which is really filling (thanks to the high fibre content) and works well with dips and spreads. I particularly like making these with the pulp from my Red Pepper Juice.

Three great health benefits: good source of fibre, promotes healthy skin, anti-inflammatory

Makes 8

Ingredients:
165g juice pulp
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp flaxseeds
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp paprika
Sea salt and black pepper

Method:
1) Preheat oven to 110 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking paper or a silicone mat.
2) Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
3) Press the mixture onto the prepared baking tray, in a thin (cracker thickness), even layer. Bake for 3 hours, flipping the "cracker" over halfway through the cooking time. When it's crisp, remove from the oven and set aside to cool before breaking into pieces in your desired cracker size.
