I love fresh veggie juices – but hate wasting all that leftover fibre that comes out into the catcher! I normally add it into the dog food or just compost it, but – it also mixes beautifully with BixMix to make loads of healthy veggie crackers! This recipe will add some sneaky mixed veggie fibre into kids & fussy folks. They are pretty plain, perfect with a flavoursome dip, or you can easily add more herbs / salt to make them more interesting!
400g pack of BixMix
300-600g of veggie juice fibre – I used 600g of leftover pulp from juicing celery, carrot, beetroot, cucumber, turmeric & ginger).
50mL olive oil
1 cup Almond meal
1 cup Hempseed
Salt if desired
1/2 cup of chopped fresh thyme (or other herbs)
1. Mix well using clean hands until an even dough is formed.
2.Leave to sit overnight (or at least for a few hours). This will make the mixture thicken & stick together better / be much easier to work with.
3. After the mix has thickened overnight, use a rolling pin to roll it out flat between sheets of baking paper on the bench.
4.When you have a nice even sheet rolled out, peel off the top layer of baking paper & cut into shapes with a cookie cutter (or a pizza cutter also works well).
5.Bake on a low temperature (ie 160 degrees) until all the moisture has been sucked out of them & they are nice & crisp / snap when bent.
6.Store in airtight jars or containers.
Approx 3 – 4 oven trays of crackers
