Things you can do with your dehydrator (reference from Hippocrates Health Institutes’ Raw Foods Dehydration Permachart): “baked” stuffed vegetables, burgers and patties, “cooked” vegetables (marinating is accelerated by a dehydrator, imparting a cooked look and feel), crusts for pies, quiches, and pizza, dulse chips, energy and dessert bars, flax crackers, fruit and vegetable chips, fruit leather, germinated nuts/seeds, either seasoned or plain, granola, nut “cheese”, nut crackers and cookies, pancakes, sprouted grain breads and crackers, thickened/reduced sauces, “warm” food.
In a raw kitchen, the right equipment can make daily food preparation easier, more efficient, and more interesting. A food dehydrator greatly expands the possibilities by allowing for new and varied textures, concentrated flavors, and preservation. IT also provides a way to create “convenience” food for the raw foodist—a healthful way to prepare snacks that can ultimately save time, money, and satisfy children.
