Waste Not Want Not: What to do with juice pulp

Juice often?
And ever wonder what to do with that leftover cellulose plant fibers?
I mean sure, throwing it in your yard or compost pile are great ideas, but if you think about it, you're throwing out a good amount of nutrients and ruffage you could easily add to your diet.
"Waste not want not!"
Here is a simple recipe I used to make some awesome pulp crackers I used with leftover veggie juice pulp!

Juice Pulp Crackers
3 cups of juice pulp
1/2-2/3 cup garbanzo flour
1/4 cup chia seeds
splash of water
1/2 tsp fennel Seeds
1/4 tsp dried thyme
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 425.
2. Mix ingredients in a bowl until paste consistency is produced.
3. Oil baking sheet.
4. Spread pulp dough to thin layer on the sheet.
5. Bake 30-40 minutes until crispy, cut into squares and bake again for 5-10 minutes if needed. (Sometimes it doesn't evenly bake to the middle part, so this is when you would cut it and bake again thoroughly.)

A great source of fiber, protein and PLENTY vitamins!! <3
