We all love making fresh and tasty fruit and vegetable juice, but during this process we make a lot of juice pulp that we don’t normally have a clue about what to do with it.
We often treat juice pulp as waste and throw it all away after we’re done juicing, but they’re actually perfectly edible and can be repurposed to be used in different foods.
So, get creative with the pulp leftovers instead of throwing them to waste! Here are 7 ways you can use your leftover juice pulp:
1. Add To Scrambled Eggs
Here’s how you can make your morning breakfast healthy — instead of adding bacon or cheese into your scrambled eggs, replace them with your leftover juice pulp instead!
Simply toss the pulp into your eggs, scramble them together on your pan, and you’ll get a tasty and nutrient-filled scrambled eggs breakfast in just minutes.
2. Add To Baked Goods
Your leftover juice pulp makes a great natural sweetener and nutrition booster to your favourite homemade muffin or bread recipes.
Not only does it removes the need for artificial sweeteners, the pulp’s moisture content means that you can bake them with less oil and butter as well.
Perfect for making healthy bread!
3. Add To Meatballs
Adding fruit pulp to your meatball recipe can give a refreshing flavour lift to your meatball and burger patties.
Simply add the leftover juice pulp into your ground / minced meat mixture, roll and shape them into a ball shape, and simply fry them away in a pan!
4. Make Healthy Fritter Snacks
Your leftover juice pulp can be repurposed into making fritter snacks that are way more nutrient-packed than your usual cheesesticks or potato fritters.
Add 1 egg, beat it and mix it together with the pulp, and season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to shape them into fritters, before frying them in a pan, and viola!
5. Put It In Your Dips
Mix your leftover juice pulp into sour cream, yoghurt, hummus or even mayonnaise and mix them together well to up the nutrition level of your dipping sauces.
This is one dip that you won’t regret indulging your favourite foods in.
6. Make a Pulp-Infused Soup Broth
Throw your leftover juice pulp into a pot of simmering water and season it with salt and your preferred spices to make a nutritious and flavourful vegetable broth.
You can also add the leftover juice pulp into or meat-based broth, such as bone broth, chicken stock or beef stock, to give it a more complex flavour and nutritional profile.
7. Make Fruit-Infused Tea
Simply add the leftover juice pulp into the boiling water your tea bag is soaking in. This is a great way of making your teas more flavourful, and also gives you control over your tea’s flavour.
