Tish got a juicer a year or so ago, and whenever I’m out in LA visiting her, she almost always makes us juice. (I’m so lucky!) Problem is, when she’s done, there’s all of this beautiful pulp left over. And we’re not talking like a tablespoon or two, we’re talking cups of fibrous veggie stuff and lots of fiber that’s been filtered out through the juicing process. Now, we know juicing is good for us, but what’s one to do with all of the leftover juice pulp? It seems sad to just throw it away …
Tish and I have seriously had the conversation SO many times about what to do with the pulp. Bake it into muffins? Add it to pasta sauce? Throw into stir-fry? Eh, we just weren’t sure beyond composting it. So when we got an email from Foxy with full-out recipes for making yummy green juice and then a recipe that uses the leftover juice pulp in a tasty and healthy new way, we were stoked! High-fives and pelvic thrusts all around. (Why do we celebrate with pelvic thrusts? I don’t know, but we do.)
Check it. Make it. You may love this juice pulp recipe so much that you’ll be pelvic thrusting, too!
