Carrot Pulp Recipes

Carrot pulp is probably the most widely used juicer pulp with a close runner up of apple pulp. Usually people who are serious juicers or are juicing for a condition juice a large amount of carrots due to its high vitamin and mineral content.

So that leaves one issue….

What do you do with all the leftover?

Just like any fruit or veggie pulp, you can compost it or use it in recipes.

Overall it is pretty versatile. It has a sweet and salty taste and a good firm texture that makes it easy to work with. It’s not as mushy as other pulps can be. It can be added to a host of things including, salads, meatballs and burgers, cookies, cakes, soups and crackers. Depending on what you’re eating, you can generally throw in about a tablespoon or two and it seems to blend in beautifully.
