Left over carrot stuff after juicing?

Sunday, December 15, 2013

I juiced 5 pounds of carrots. (For Fuhrman's Anti Cancer Soup) I froze the leftover stuff in a baggie. Now what can I do with it. Obviously the carrot juice is not in it anymore. Won't it make my food very dry? I was thinking of putting it in muffins or meatloaf.

Thanks, chris

    You got some great ideas and you can use it like applesauce and put it in deserts too

    I make flax crackers with the carrot leftovers, soup, muffins. Mostly though I put it in the flowerbed. I am rather excited with the results. The flowers are growing like crazy.

    Substitute the carrot for pumpkin in a low fat low sugar pumpkin custard or pumpkin pie recipe

    Muffins and meatloaf are excellent places!
    You might want to use it fresh and toss the rest
    put it in smaller serving baggies to use gradually instead of one big lump.

    Put it in veggie soup or stew.
    Mix into a mixed veggie salad.
    Serve some to a pet horse or rabbit
    Place into a compost pile the fiber is helpful to garden plants once the composting is done.
    Oh Gee I thought of these before reading out friend’s inputs
    I like that chicken idea!

    Caution too much can turn your skin orange!

    Use it like you would subbing applesauce for oil, to baked goods, or use it for vegetable soup.. mix it in slaw for color,,

    Both your ideas are great! .......... I also use mine to add to my next veggie or Green drink! ............... OR add into a veggie soup ............. emoticon I think likely many ways ............. (I would like to know as I use them much in my green drinks) and meat loaf or turkey loaf recipes ........... and muffins. emoticon for causing me to brainstorm now.

    derhydrated crackers also. Depending on what type of juicer you used, the pulp can be moist or very dry like mine is. I throw mine out because I don't garden. You can use yours also in the compost heap if you do that. I truly hope you use organic produce.

    We used to have a rabbit. I fed him the leftovers from juicing on a daily basis along with his pellets. He loved the stuff and I'am sure it was very healthy. emoticon

    Bravo for juicing 5 lbs. of carrots!!! emoticon Suggestion:

    My CREAMY CARROT SOUP emoticon

    Add about a pound of baby carrots and a bag of frozen cauliflower to 32oz chicken broth; you can use your leftover carrot stuff in place of baby carrots
    Add 32 oz water and cook til tender.
    Add garlic, onion and turmeric spices;
    Blend in batches with (approx.) 1/4-1/3 cup grated parmesan for each batch; Makes about 3 blenders full !
    Can be frozen.
    The Parmesan makes soup SO creamy.

    I used to have a juicer - I would add it to soup/stews, any kind of mashed vegetable (ie squash), any kind of stir fry, muffins.

    If you cook it (steam it) and then freeze it, it will almost dissolve when you add it to meatloaf.
    I even sprinkled it raw on sandwiches (if you're allowed sandwiches, I'm not sure)

    Add nuts and raisins and a little mayo or other kind oil/salad dressing, some spices and call it carrot slaw.

    or mix it with cabbage/broccoli shredded

    Mix it with grapes and mandarin oranges with a little orange juice and cinnamon and call it dessert.
