For Fantastic Breads
and Chip Dip,
or Battered and Fried
Dehydrating Zucchini is very easy and makes fantastic zucchini bread,
can be added to soups, and casseroles or as a dip for chips. How about
cream sauces, or battered and fried zucchini?
I love this veggie in ratatouille,
which is a dish comprised of onions, squash, zucchini, black olives,
Italian herbs, tomatoes ... You can use it either fresh or dehydrated
and I'll show you how easy it is – just click on the "ratatouille" link above!
There's not much preparation necessary aside from washing and lightly scrubbing zucchini first in cool, clean water!
Zucchini has a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and Choline, followed
by Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, vitamin B6, and Riboflavin.
are Folate, and vitamin K. Minerals found in zucchini are Potassium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, and Calcium, followed by Zinc, Iron, Manganese, and Copper.
There are also trace amounts of Selenium. Zucchini contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
How to Dehydrate Zucchini
- Wash and slice the zucchini and cut into 3/8" slices and throw
away the ends. Steam zucchini over boiling water for a few minutes.
- Arrange the zucchini on your food dehydrator trays, making sure the zucchini slices don't overlap.
- Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
- Dehydrated zucchini will be brittle when fully dried.
- Drying time: between 5-11 hours.
- Please remember to rotate your trays for even drying.
This is a Great Mandoline from Amazon
Make it a little easier by using a knife or a mandoline, but please be careful. I was showing off there cutting two zucchini at one time ...
Practice makes perfect!
Make sure that you keep the cuts a uniform thickness, for even drying times.
Thinner ones make great chips, and thicker ones are OK for mashing up (after re-hydrating) for use in zucchini loaves.
