When I was into juicing during law school, I figured out a really good muffin recipe that incorporated the shavings from my daily juices. I will tackle those again someday, but – after a juice-wary friend said it seemed wasteful – I was curious about doing bread.
The fruit & veggie shavings are mealy/pulpy with just a bit of moisture, so they do well as the “meat” for baked goods… if that makes sense! It’s the chicken of the sea…
I like to play around in the kitchen, so I just put my thinking cap on during this process.
So, here’s how I started:
Sliver of cabbage
1 Red Delicious apple
1 Pink Lady Apple
One-third yellow bell pepper
Few broccoli stems
Bit of ginger
Overnight, I soaked 1 cup oats in enough almond milk to cover them
Sprinkled cinnamon liberally
Added some milled flax seed
Added the shavings
Touch of salt
Handful chopped walnuts
More milk to squish everything together
Bake at 430 for around 45 min
It was gross!
It’s dense & flavorless (forgot to add honey). But now I know! It either needs to be more silky muffin-y or more poofy to be bread. But, hey, i tried something new & can change it up in the future.
I doctored up the loaf with agave nectar, which made it taste infinitely better… but that seems like an inverse-adult version of making zucchini brownies.
And it may have given me an idea for dog treats… Pax and Izzy already love shavings with their dog food.
