Green juice with carrot tops, ginger and dulse flakes

DSC01948

It has been so long since I posted a recipe for green juice! Whenever I introduce a new ingredient in my regular juice, I post about it. This time it is delicious carrot tops! Do check this earlier post to find out why I juice and my choice of juicer.

I had planted carrot seeds in my garden and now it is yielding small carrots with lovely shoots. I have heard that the tops are edible. After a quick google search, I found this very useful post from thekitchn.com. As a first trial, I juiced the leaves that have a nice carroty smell. I also have started adding dulse flakes to green juice for a natural iodide source.

I’m posting this in the Virtual Vegan Linky potluck 10 this week. Click on the link for wonderful vegan ideas!
