Raw Gluten-Free Tamari Carrot Bread Recipe

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, Paleo ~

Today, my Omega VRT350 came in the mail. No more than 10 minutes had passed when I found myself feeding carrots into the hopper. It hummed as I feed it one carrot after another, after another. I think it hypnotized me because before I knew it, I had a huge bowl of carrot pulp and enough juice to feed a herd of bunnies.

Herd of Bunnies

Well, I don’t have a pack of bunnies, so I drank it myself… yep, all of it, in one sitting. I expect that I will wake up with a self-tan in the morning. lol

Between my new juicer and my intensified effort to curb food waste, I went to work on ways to use the leftover pulp from juicing. A really good juicer will create a dry pulp, which can leave it lacking in flavor. So why would I use it? Well, the pulp has lots of fiber, and it seems a shame not to eat it.

The moisture content of the pulp that I create and you create will always very. It all depends on the juicer as well as the carrots themselves. So keep this in mind as you are creating the recipe. Sometimes you might have to add a little more liquid than other times.

Are there any Nutrients left?

You might be wondering if there are any nutrients left in the pulp? Isn’t the whole point is that the nutrients have been extracted when juicing? Technically yes. If you own a Norwalk juicer, there’d be nothing left but fiber. But those are not the most common household kitchen juicers (they run about $2,500). Most centrifugal juicers are imperfect enough to leave some nutrient content in the pulp. But trust me, we are not going to be partaking in a lack-luster-nutrient-void bread here.

Nope, instead, we will be enjoying a sandwich that is filled with fiber, healthy omega’s (thanks, flax), it will be anti-inflammatory due to the turmeric and black pepper (which is needed for its absorption).  This bread is semi-spongy, flexible, subtle in flavor, yet sturdy enough to eat like a sandwich. A Tall order, but I fulfilled it. I hope you enjoy the recipe. Please comment below. Blessings, amie sue

Raw Gluten-Free Tamari Carrot sandwichIngredients:

yields 12 x 12″ bread


  1. In a food processor, combine the carrot pulp, water, flax flour, Tamari, mesquite flour, turmeric, coriander, and black pepper.
    • Tamari is a soy sauce substitute. For a soy-free option use Coconut Aminos.
    • Tamari adds umami and also is used in place of salt.
  2. Spread mixture on non-stick dehydrator sheets and score into bread size pieces. Make them as big or small as you wish.
  3. Dehydrate at 145 degrees (F) for 1 hour, then reduce to 115 degrees (F)  for 4 hours.
    • If you don’t have non-stick dehydrator sheets, you can use parchment paper but not wax.  Food sticks to wax when drying.
    • Partway through the dry time, remove from the dehydrator, and flip. To flip, place a dehydrator plastic mesh screen on top of the bread, and cover with a dehydrator tray.  Flip the entire assembly over, remove the top tray, and peel the non-stick sheet from bread.
    • Return to the dehydrator and continue to dehydrate for 6 more hours, until the desired consistency is reached.
  4. Store in an airtight container for 7 days in the fridge.

    Hi Amie Sue,

    Not sure if you got this post. Wondering how long did you dehydrate the Tamari Carrot Bread?
    Thanks, Margie

    Good Morning Amie Sue,
    I would love to make these for my husband (they look yummy), but alas he is allergic to flax seeds, turmeric, and soy. I think I can use chia seeds in place of flax seeds (from reading other answers you gave on different recipes), but would love your advice on turmeric , soy and the flax (if I am wrong). Thank you for your time in answering my questions- have a blest weekend. :] Lyn

      Howdy Lyn….

      Goodness, I feel for your husband with all these allergies. You must be a god-send to him as you help create foods for him. :)

      Lets see, instead of flax, use chia seeds. As far as the tumeric goes, just replace with any spice that he enjoys. The tumeric isn’t a strong spice in this recipe, I used it for the health benefits. You could just omit it and not add anything in its place as well. As far as soy goes; try Tamari, Raw Coconut Aminos, Braggs Aminos… they all basically taste the same. Here is a link that I want you to read over to help. https://nouveauraw.com/special-raw-ingredients/soy-sauce-salt-substitutions/

      Off to bed I go… I have been apart of this far to long. haha I hope this helps Lyn. Blessings, amie sue

        Dear Amie Sue,
        Thank you so very much, I printed out this information. He is also allergic to soy, but it seems he is ok with the coconut, so I will try this recipe with coconut aminos – Thanks again Lyn :]

    amie-sue, I do not have a juicer to make carrot pulp, would I use grated carrots or make a carrot puree in a food processor. I love your recipes!!!!! I feel like you enable me to enjoy foods that I gave up because I did not want to take in all the fake foods and chemicals. Thank-you, thank-you for all your work!!!

    • amie-sue says:

      You are welcome Suzie and you are welcome. :) It is my pleasure to share my experiences in the kitchen. I think that the shredded carrots would be too wet. So go ahead and blend the carrots in the food processor or blender and then strain it through a nut bag… drink the juice and use the pulp in the crackers. :) Let me know if you try it and how it goes. Many blessings! amie sue

    You have a beautiful site and I am going to try some of your recipes. Can you freeze the carrot pulp in order to save up enough pulp for these crackers? I don’t normally use more than two carrots in my daily juice. I have tried to find ways to store it on the web, but most sites just tell you what you can do with it. I figure you probably know the answer. I don’t think it will last long enough in the fridge to save up that much carrot pulp. I am slowly saving my nut milk pulp (freezing it) to try some of your bread recipes. I have even gotten hubby on board using my almond milk instead of the store bought stuff! Thanks so much!

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Dreama,

      Yes, absolutely! I tend to always freeze veggie pulps and nut pulps so I can accumulate a decent stash for recipe creating. hehe Great job in getting your husband to transition over to almond milk. :) Try other nuts and seeds too! Have a blessed holiday season, amie sue

  7. Marina Reuter says:

    hello… may i ask which juicer you decided to buy??

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Marina… there is a name and link to the one I bought in the very first sentence of this posting. :) amie sue

      • Marina Reuter says:

        Oh .. Of course!.. Sorry I missed that.
        Thank you.
        Is your machine up to your expectations.?
        I cannot afford a Norwalk either…

        • amie-sue says:

          It’s ok Marina… it’s easy to miss things. hehe Has the machine lived up to my expectations? Yes. I have owned it for years now and still love it. I am never tempted to entertain the idea of finding anything better or newer so that is a good sign. :) Enjoy the day! amie sue
