I have a love hate relationship with my cold press juicer. Love: yummy refreshing juice. Hate: I am left with vegetable pulp and am always left standing in the kitchen wondering what to do with it. These beetroot flax crackers are a fantastic way to use up some unwanted vegetable pulp. They are perfect as a snack on their own or used with a dip. Also delicious dipped in raw chocolate mousse as shown. Genius!!
⅓ cup flax seeds
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup water
¼ cup cranberries
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup flaked almonds
1 cup beetroot pulp
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp flax meal
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
1. Mix flax seeds and chia seeds with water and let sit for 1 hour (the seeds will release a sticky gooey
substance which will act as the binder for the crackers).
2. Preheat oven at 100 degrees celcius.
3. Add cranberries, raisins and flaked almonds to food processor and process until roughly chopped. Add to the sticky seed mixture.
4. Mix in the rest of the ingredients
5. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Divide mixture into 2 and press the mixture onto the tray with a spatula until flat.
6. Using a knife, cut the slice into small squares (this will make it easier to break apart later)
7. Put into the oven for approximately 45 mins. The crackers are ready when they are dry and crisp. Or alternatively, these can go into a dehydrator.
8. Let cool and then break into pieces.
