Easy  Dehydrated Food Recipes

All our dehydrated food recipes featured on our site are included in our eBook or Paperback if you prefer. The recipes are taste-tested and so easy to make!

All the recipes in our 20 Taste-Tested Easy Recipes contain dehydrated food but are not made "solely" of dehydrated food. For example, you need to add stock and meat to the soups.

In fact, our eBook tells you what quantities of "fresh foods" to use—that you may have on hand and wish to use—instead of dehydrated!

BUT FIRST:

Can You Really Use Dehydrated Food in Recipes?

If you have a dehydrator, you may be wondering if you can use dehydrated food in recipes. The answer is yes! Dehydrated foods can be used in a variety of recipes, including soups, stews, casseroles, and more.

When using dehydrated foods in recipes, it's important to rehydrate them first. This can be done by soaking the food in water for a few hours or overnight.

Once the food is rehydrated, it can then be added to your recipe as you would any other ingredient. Keep in mind that dehydrated foods will often need to cook for longer than fresh or frozen foods, so plan accordingly.

Dehydrated foods can add nutrition and flavor to your recipes. So experiment and see what you can come up with!

MAIN MEALS

Can You Use Dehydrated Foods in Desserts?

Dehydrated foods can also be used in desserts! This may seem strange, but dehydrated fruits and vegetables can add a lot of flavor and nutrition to sweet dishes.

For example, dehydrated bananas can be used in banana bread or muffins. Dehydrated carrots can be added to carrot cake. Dehydrated zucchini can be used in zucchini bread.

So if you're looking for a new way to add some flavor to your desserts, consider using dehydrated foods. You may be surprised at how good they taste!

EXTRAS

Easy to Make PIZZA!

A slice of homemade pizza on a plate

Check out this tasty pizza made with this "Super Easy Bread" recipe for its crust.

These breads are really easy to make. I am surprised at how few ingredients go into Anita's bread. One of my favorite experiences was baking bread with my mum. We used the "home-baked bread" recipe, and we even impressed ourselves with how 'professional' our loaves looked!

Also in the extras, you'll see millet and quinoa. Even though they look the same, they do not taste the same at all. I find quinoa to be a little on the grainy side and with quinoa, you MUST rinse it first to get rid of the bitter taste. I use this sieve from Fantes.com to rinse my quinoa.

Can You Use Dried Berries in Smoothies?

If you're looking for a way to add some sweetness to your smoothies, consider using dried berries. Dried berries are a super source of natural sugars and can add a lot of flavor to your smoothies.

When using dried berries in smoothies, it's important to rehydrate them first. This can be done by soaking the berries in water for a few hours or overnight.

Once the berries are rehydrated, they can then be added to your smoothie along with the other ingredients. Dried berries can also be added to yogurt or oatmeal for a delicious and nutritious breakfast.

Get the Kids Involved! ;-)

We hope you and your family enjoyed trying out our recipes. Meal prep time can be greatly reduced because we are using dehydrated ingredients—which helps—when we're in a hurry and running late.

Of course, you still have to find time to dehydrate the foods in the first place, but that's something you can set aside to do on a day off work, for instance.

Get your kids involved; I'm sure they'd have fun watching the foods dry up and shrink right before their eyes! I'm always fascinated by how celery shrivels up into curls—they remind me of tiny seahorses!

Thanks for stopping by my dehydrated food recipes page. I hope you'll try your hand at making these recipes; they're easy (otherwise I wouldn't have made them!)

A reminder: in the Recipe eBook, there are 26 recipes included; all recipes show the amount of dehydrated ingredients to use and the fresh-food amounts too! The book is available in eBook, as shown, and paperback.
