Have carrot pulp? Make cake!
Raw Carrot-Banana Cake (adapted from Healthy Simple Living)
Serves 4 – 6
*3/4 c pecans
*4 medjool dates, pitted and diced
*1.5 c carrot pulp
*1/2 c shredded coconut
*1.5 tsp flax seed oil
*1.5 Tbsp ground flax seed
*1 small, ripe banana
*Dash of nutmeg
Pulse pecans and dates in the food processor using the “S” blade. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse again until a “dough” forms.
Transfer “dough” to ramekins, filling each half-way. (I only found two small ramekins — where did the other two disappear to?! So I took the remaining dough and added it to a larger “ramekin” style bowl.)
Dehydrate on 145F for one hour. Reduce to 105F for another 3 hours. Flip the cake out of the dishes directly to the dehydrator screen and dehydrate for 4 more hours.
I made this incredible frosting and spread it on the carrot-banana cake.
This dessert was delicious! Even the omnivore husband loved this raw, vegan cake!
With just one cucumber

JL’s Cucumber & Beet Noodle Salad with Avo-Hemp Dressing (Raw)

*2 T coconut aminos
*1 small clove of garlic

Run the cucumber and beet through a spiralizer (I use a Spirooli Spiral 3-in-1 Slicer)
