Am I the only one who likes to my own plant based milk but cannot always think of what to do with the leftover pulp? I already learned how to use pulp from pulses – I add it to my seitan, but nut pulp has always been a bit of a headache to me and I’m gonna be honest with you – I threw it out few times because it was getting bad in the fridge while I was thinking of ideas how to use it up. And also almonds is not the most sustainable nut – needs a lot of water for growing and has to travel quite a bit. So with this sad note I haven’t been making almond milk for a while until… my mom got me 2kg of it 😀 So, shortly – I made almond milk again. And this time I made crackers from the pulp and oh yes they turned out great and now I want to make almond milk again just so I could have some of those crackers.
Tips and insights:
- I removed the skins from almonds this time but it’s ok not to;
- you can freeze the pulp and then make bigger batch of the crackers;
- these crackers are super crunchy;
- crackers can be stored in a dry place for quite a while – month for sure but I doubt you will have any left:)
- you can add your fav herbs, seeds and spices to the crackers;
- you can make them any shape you like and the picture of how I do the shaping is just below;
- I make my own hemp salt by blending 200g of hemp seeds (with hulls) with 100g of himalayan salt.
You will need:
- 130g almond pulp
- 50g flour (you can use wheat, spelt or GF)
- 15g ground flax seeds
- 5g hemp salt (or regular salt to taste)
- 20g oil (I used olive)
- 1/4 a.š. baking powder
- 1/2 a.š. onion powder
- 1/2 a.š. rosemary
- 1 a.š. nutritional yeast
- for sprinkling I loved nigella seeds and rosemary.
What to do?
- mix all the ingredients and form a dough;
- move the dough to a silicon or paper baking sheet and flatten it with a rolling pin, sprinkle with toppings, portion it (like in a picture above);
- bake for 30min at 175C, breaking crackers apart after 15mins - to make sure the middle ones get baked too;
- the aim is cirspy and golden crackers so if you think they need more time, give them more time!
