What to use with Beet Pulp?
My farmer's market is still selling beets so I've been buying one or two a week to juice, freeze into cubes and add to my morning raw fruit smoothies. It cuts back some of the sweetness from the fruit, adds a beautiful color as well as added health benefits. After juicing I end up with this beautiful red pulp. I HATE to waste ANYTHING. Any ideas on what I can do with beet pulp besides throw it away (or compost it...) I thought I had heard it could be added to bakeds breads or even cakes...

I don't have exact measurements but you just add a little of this and that until it is the consistency of thick pesto and holds together. You can either transfer to a piping bag and pipe out small dollops onto teflex sheets or lightly oiled parchment, then smoosh them down with a spatula (small crackers), or just spread 1/8" thick solid layers and cut into squares when dried (big crackers).
Either way, remember to flip over halfway (throw away paper at this point) through baking to get dry on both sides.
These are super filling and great to have around for snacks. Tons of fiber!
