Raw Carrot Pulp Recipes – Don’t Throw it Away!
I juice a lot. I mean a lot. And this invariably means than I have a lot of raw carrot pulp and other types of pulp left over. I don’t like wasting food, so today I have a few creative and unique raw carrot pulp recipes to share.
Raw Carrot Pulp Recipes: Raw Food Mash
What is raw food mash, you might ask? Well I have to tell you than most long term rawfooders have their own version of mash. I like to make it with raw carrot juice pulp, but I have seen it made with raw sweet potato pulp and other winter squash pulp. I have also seen it made with raw broccoli, cauliflower, and beets.
Basically you are just “mashing” everything (in the food processor) together to get a mashed consistency that turns into a quick and filling meal. It’s not the prettiest meal, but it’s not made to look pretty. It’s job is to fill you up quickly without depending on a lot of nuts. Once you try raw carrot pulp mash, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it!
My basic mash recipe includes 2 cups carrot pulp, 1 large avocado, and 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice (depending on how tangy you like it) processed in the food processor with the S blade until well incorporated. Then you can top it with a combination of anything you like. I like to add Dulse flakes, raw olives or sauerkraut, chopped green onion, chopped tomatoes, chopped red bell peppers, and fresh herbs such as chopped parsley or cilantro. Mash can be a blank canvas to add your own unique toppings and seasonings.

- 2 Cups Carrot or Sweet Potato Pulp From Juicing
- 1 Large Avocado
- 2 Tablespoons Chopped Cilantro (No Stems)
- 1-2 Tablespoons Lime Juice (Depending on Your Desired Level of Tanginess)
- 2 Tablespoons Chopped Black or Green Olives
- 1-2 Cloves of Fresh Pressed Garlic
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
- 1/2 Teaspoon Dulse Flakes
- Dash of Cayenne Pepper to Taste
Process the carrot or sweet potato pulp in the food processor with the S blade until the carrots are finely ground. Then add the lime juice, avocado, pressed garlic, Dulse flakes, and spices and process some more until the mixture reaches a pate consistency. (You might need to stop the food processor half way through and scrape down the sides). Fold in the chopped olives and cilantro. Eat as is or on top of a bed of greens.
- If you don’t have a juicer you can always just process the carrots in the food processor before you add the avocado or you can use your Omega 8006 juicer with the blank screen on and just alternate the carrots with the avocado through your Omega 8006.
- If you are going to be using mash as a dip, add one more avocado for a creamier consistency.
- If you are not familiar with Dulse flakes, they are a mild tasting flaked seaweed that you can get at any natural grocery store in the bulk herb or spice aisle. If they are not available, you can just substitute with sea salt to taste.
