Dehydrating Cauliflower

By dehydrating cauliflower when it's in season it enables you to make delicious Cauliflower Soup and Cauliflower Mash (click on the links for their recipes!)

Just Like Mashed Potatoes!

Add millet and quinoa to the Cauliflower Mash for a great source of protein. Kids like this, as it compares favorably to 'mashed potatoes' – the millet and quinoa really adds to the goodness of cauliflower!

Cauliflower is a good source of vitamins A and C, and Choline, followed by Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Riboflavin, with trace amounts of vitamin E, and vitamin K.

In the mineral department, cauliflower is rich in Potassium, followed by Phosphorus, Calcium, and Magnesium.

There are trace amounts of Selenium, Iron, Zinc, Manganese, and Fluoride. Cauliflower contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

In the photo at the top of the page, the dehydrated cauliflower looks rather brown, but don't worry about that as it turns back to white when it's re-hydrated!

Let Frozen Cauliflower Thaw First

Let Frozen Cauliflower
Thaw First

Let the cauliflower thaw out (in its bag, unopened) in your kitchen sink in a bowl of tepid water if you're short on time, otherwise let the cauliflower bag thaw out for around an hour in your kitchen sink, unopened, then chop and put on the trays.

If thawing the frozen cauliflower by the water-in-the-bowl method, keep changing out the tepid water in the bowl until the cauliflower has thawed sufficiently for you to be able to cut (feel the pieces while they're still in the bag until they're soft enough).

This will probably take about 10 minutes. Keep on reading below for how to dehydrate cauliflower.

NOTE:
You will have to slice the larger cauliflower pieces
in half so that the cauliflower
will fit between the food dehydrator trays.

How to Dehydrate Cauliflower

If using frozen cauliflower, ignore steps 1 and 2.

  1. Wash and slice fresh cauliflower into 1/2" thick pieces
  2. Blanch the cauliflower in a small amount of boiling water for a few minutes, in batches
  3. Arrange on your food dehydrator trays, making sure the cauliflower pieces don't touch, for good air circulation
  4. Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F(or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
  • Dehydrated cauliflower will be brittle when fully dried.
  • Drying time: between 6-14 hours.
  • Please remember to rotate your trays for even drying.
