I have a lot of carrot pulp when I juiced our fruit and vegetable juices every morning. I used to throw away all the pulp after jucing until I talked to a man whom I met at an organic shop, who shared with me how he uses the carrot pulp for his meals. This conversation helps to think further on how I could keep food wastage to the minimum. I start to keep the carrot pulp for my daughter’s porridge but there is still plenty of leftover pulp to be used.
While reading ‘The Gerson Therapy”, I found this easy recipe on how to make an oatmeal cake, which uses grated carrots as one of the ingredients.
While baking this cake, I kept wondering whether this cake would hold itself together and whether it tasted good. Surprisingly, the cake still manages to keep itself together as a slice when I handle it gently. I like it sweet and chewy. Even my husband and little toddler girl like it too.
Thumb-up for this healthy dessert! It is fuss-free, oil-free, egg-free and flour-free.
