Thanks for another breakfast option. I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal, so eating that every day isn't an option. Plus, I don't think my step-son would be a fan of daily oatmeal, either. Loving all the additional options!!

PS: Thanks for the tip about feeding the pups with pulp! Never thought of that - will have to try it soon! (Guess that means I ought to drag out the juicer again... lol!)

I feel the same way; and I hate throwing away food...thank goodness for the compost pile so at least you can feel that it is turning into something valuable and useful.

But, and I haven't done this yet, I am thinking about chopping it up real good either by hand or in the processor and putting it in something like a quiche or other eggy/cheesy casserole-type thing. Maybe, in the processor I could add a handful of basil and nuts and garlic, lemon juice and olive oil and make a kind of pesto...or other sauce for meats and fish. If I was a pasta eater I would put it on hot buttered noodles. Maybe we could make a spread out of it for hors d'oeuvres or even for sandwich eaters...mmmm--with cream cheese...hmmm

My poor little head is just streaming this morning with ideas. I SO love to invent things in the kitchen!!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I never thought about giving it to the dogs. I thought my chickens and ducks would love it, but they didn't touch it, so then I tried giving it to our goats, and they wouldn't eat it either so I've just been composting it for now. It just feels odd tossing out so much fruit and veggie parts - its hard to believe there isn't a lot of good stuff left in all that pulp!

This recipe looks delish.

Response to the pulp issue. Every day I share the pulp left over from juicing with my dogs.

For me, I have done a few different things with it for both a hot or cold dish. I'm sure there are still nutrients in it though of course not as much but what it does have is the best fiber (fibre for Laura lol) around. Yesterday I put in in a pan to heat up just a bit with some S&P, put a slice of cheese on top, put it under the broiler and plopped a poached egg on top.

Here's the thing you got to know though. A lot of the pulp comes through in long, tough, strings from things like celery and the ribs of chard and kale. So you have to put it on the cutting board and mince the heck out of it before eating unless you don't mind those tough strings--personally, I do!

Another way to eat pulp is cold with mayo or some dressing of choice next to some meat or fish. I'm inventing other things too. Adding olives, tomato, roasted cherry tomatoes, nuts...anything you can drag out of your fridge is great!

My doggies yum it up like it was chopped liver! I feel real good about giving it to them.

FUNKY_CHICKEN in this recipe you can just leave out the ham and it would be fine but I think adding more veggies would be very tasty...I always addmany more veggie to every recipe I make.

Good luck on being a vegetarian.

FUNKY_CHICKEN, maybe add more veggies. Maybe some onions, mushrooms...

Spinach pulp would probably be fine, I'm just not sure if there are any nutrients left in the pulp.

Wonder how this would work with the spinach pulp left after juicing?

Question for ya. I recently went vegetarian. But it looks very delicious. Can you recommend a replacement for the ham? Or how would you suggest altering it... more eggs and cheese? No, more eggs would not make sense, neither would more cheese.
