Leftover pulp and other notes

One leftover from yesterday’s delicious orange coloured smoothie is the equally delicious carrot and ginger pulp. It wasn’t something you could just throw away. Two carrots yielded about a cup of pulp: dry and rather fluffy pulp.

What can you do with leftover carrot and ginger pulp?

What can you do with leftover carrot and ginger pulp?

Options for using leftover pulp are all over the internet: you can make soup, cake, jam, incorporate it into biscuits and breads (just google: there are too many recipes to count), make biscuits with the pulp as the main ingredient, add it with beetroot pulp to make a truly delicious-looking salad, make a vegetable spread, use it instead of coconut flour in muffins (scroll down to the comments), make vegan ‘crab’ cakes, add it to guacamole (not sure about the ginger in this).

All sneaky mums will instantly see the potential for sneaky veggie options, provided the ginger won’t raise an alert. Thankfully. we’re through that phase, but I could see myself stirring the pulp into meatballs, lasanga, bolognese sauce (again, providing the ginger doesn’t offend).

I’ve got some ideas of my own, too. So with a bit of experimenting, and a cup of pulp to play with, the next few days will be interesting for the family! At any rate, the original smoothie was so delicious, I’m sure I’ll be happy for any excuse to make some more.

More leftovers

We had lots of different ideas of leftovers from the latest  WordPress weekly writing challenge. This week, my two favourites were photographs.

One from my favourite wordpress poet: y-ching-lin

And one from someone asking for help:

Can anyone help?  What are these biscuits and how do you make them? The photographer took this photo for its colours and now wants to know the answers. Click on the picture to go through to the original.

The rest of these are, mostly, just fun to read. They deserve to be in a list of favourites for the week.

And this is from the 50-word inspiration of the week before.

If you know any wanna-be genius mathematicians (as some of us do), you might enjoy a couple of these stories:
