By dehydrating cauliflower when it's in season enables you to make delicious Cauliflower Soup and Cauliflower Mash.

Just Like Mashed Potatoes!

Add millet and quinoa to the cauliflower mash for a great source of protein. Kids really like this cauliflower mash, as it compares favorably to 'mashed potatoes'.

Cauliflower florets add a great crunch to add texture to summer salads too!

Let Frozen Cauliflower Thaw First

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.
