Carrot Juice and Carrot Nugget

This carrot juice is so special. I used carrots that I grow in my garden. Not only that this carrot drink is nutritious, but I did not waste any of the carrots at all.
I make carrot nuggets out of the grounded carrots. This carrot nugget is sweet and chewy.

A bowl of carrots that is peeled and washed.
I blend the carrots with 3 cups of cold water.
Here is the carrot juice after I drain it with cheese cloth.
The left over. I mix this carrot with 1 tablespoon sugar, a pinch of salt and 1/2 cup flour.
Pinch a ball of the dough and flatten it with hand. I used this cookie cutter shape to create a nice and uniform size of nugget. Deep fry this on olive oil until golden brown.

This is another collection of purple leaf plant called ornamental sweet potato vine. I did a little reading and found out that I need to winterize this plant. What I did was to cut out some of the tips and root it in a glass vase of water. This plant is so beautiful with its purple leaf. The tuberous is not editable. Next, I will have to remove the tuberous and store it in peat moss over the winter.


  1. creativenya akak.. blh buat nugget dari lebihan juice! Saya klu buat jemput2 udang or ikan bilis mmg selalu letak grated & healthy.

  2. Dhill, I grow the carrots so really don't want to waste any. Get, good thinking adding carrots in jemput jemput. Nak try la.thanks for the idea.

  3. Zue, I usually throw them away as I mix it with other veggies. The grated carrots will be good for muffins too :)
