We've had some really sweet carrots lately. Some for eating, and some for juicing - what a treat their fresh pressed juice makes!
When we juiced the carrots in our masticating juicer for the first time, it made such a pretty pulp, that we didn't want to throw it out.
So, I made it into a carrot salad that turned out to be really good! I didn't measure anything, but here's an estimate of what I added to the carrot pulp:
The carrot salad was really easy to make, and so yummy to eat!
One last thing before I give you the recipe for the savory carrot waffles...
This carrot salad can easily be transformed into a delicious sandwich spread or filling (depending on how thick or thin you make it) by mixing in either some nut cream or butter, or even some mashed garbanzo beans! Add some chopped celery, green onions, and bell peppers for extra flavor.
I don't usually measure anything, but if you'd like a recipe for the sandwich spread, just let me know and I'll post one. =)
Another recipe idea that I came up with for the carrot pulp is savory carrot patties.
Picture of carrot patties coming soon. I made these and forgot to take a picture!
Cooking coarse vegetables such as carrots helps to release other nutrients and improves their digestibility. These patties are another nice way to enjoy the carrot pulp.
Savory Carrot Patty Recipe
Oat flour makes really great patties that need neither oil nor an egg replacer. My little one loves them!
Variation: This batter can also be for savory waffles. Simply bake it in a waffle iron according to the manufacturers instructions.
I'm trying to find a good cast iron waffle maker, so if you know of one, please let me know.

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Psalm 103:1-3
If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
