The Lunch Bunch: Crunchy Crouton Salad

cruton salad

Wondering what to do with all that juice pulp from your green juice? I’ve been making a lot of nutmilks and juices recently and to use up the pulp from those I mixed it all together with some flaxseed to make these crunchy little crutons for my salad. You could make a big batch and keep them on hand to add a bit of texture to a salad. This morning I threw the crutons into a container with a few other things for lunch. Took all of about 5 minutes to prepare. Easy.

Crutons*

Dehydrated tomato slices

Chopped Tomatoes

Chopped Red Peppers

Mung Bean Sprouts

Mixed Salad Greens

Lemon Juice

Savoury Yeast Flakes

Pink Murray River Salt

Cracked Pepper

*To make the crutons

Save the pulp when you make juice or nutmilks.  I had sesame & almond nut milk pulp and spinach, carrot & celery juice pulp.

Add some ground golden flaxseeds, savoury yeast flakes, salt & olive oil. They would also be lovely with some italian herbs like rosemary, thyme, basil and oregano.

Mix everything together until light and fluffy.

Add just enough water to make the mixture bind together and roll into small balls & dehydrate until  dry and crunchy.

Blueberry & Banana Icecream

Aug 6, 2008   //   by myrakelly   //   Recipes  //  No Comments

This is a delicious alternative to the heavy nut based raw icecreams and it’s super quick and easy to make if you keep some bananas on hand in the freezer. The riper the bananas the sweeter it will be.

Ingredients

1/2 cup frozen organic blueberries

1 frozen organic banana

1/2 organic avocado

1 tbsp organic raw agave nectar

a splash of filtered or spring water

Method

Put everything apart from the water into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If it’s not moving just add a little water to get it going.

Either eat it right away for soft serve or if you are patient enough freeze for about hour then whisk with a fork before serving. Yum!

TIP: Peeling and chopping your bananas before freezing makes life much easier. Peeling frozen bananas is a surefire way to get a bad case of finger frostbite.
