If you juice at home have you ever wondered what in the world to do with the leftover vegetable pulp? I have all your problems solved with these incredible Southwestern Quinoa Bites–chock-full of quinoa and juicing pulp. (Side note: even if you don’t juice at home, I got you covered on how to still make these bites!)
Over the past couple years I have become a huge lover of juicing. I even bought an Omega (which I LOVE) and I now make a tradition of going to the farmer’s market every Sunday to buy fresh produce to juice at home for the entire week. The thing about juicing, however, is that there is a ton of pulp left over from the vegetables. I always feel guilty about throwing it all away because there is still food to be eaten despite the fact that it is the leftover fiber of the vegetables and fruit. I just never really have known what to do with it (translation: I never put that much thought into it) That is, until now.
Today I am guest posting over at Tasty Yummies, bringing you these Southwestern Quinoa Bites with an Avocado Dipping Sauce. I know, I can hardly believe it too–two recipes for the price of one. It’s bargain Tuesday! What a deal.
Yum, Cara these sound amazing!!! I reckon I could just eat that avocado dipping sauce out of the bowl… no wait, but I want it with the quinoa bites too. Hang on, I’ll just make double quantity!! Avocado is good for me, right?? 😉 Thanks for this awesome recipe x
You know what it would great as, Laura? A salad dressing! Wait a minute, I think I have a new recipe idea 🙂
They look good. Another good use for all that pulp is a composter too. What luscious compost that would make. I wish I was your neighbor!
How do you feel about moving to California? 😉
This is a great idea, these are the perfect bits and pieces food! Lots of little leftovers that usually end up in the compost!
I know, I always feel bad about throwing all of that away. This week I have been adding the pulp to every meal I make at dinner 🙂 ha
Hallelujah! A pulp recipe! YAY. So far I have frozen pulp in ice cube trays or 1/2c sizes for use in smoothies, soups and kids’ spagetti sauce – they have no idea all the healthy stuff I sneak in there! I will make these soon! Thank you.
Ohmygosh Glo, what GREAT ideas–I love the ice cube suggestion! Gonna have to try that, thank you. xo
