Using a dehydrator will expand the recipe possibilities and types of foods you can prepare. Dehydrating is nothing more than removing moisture content in foods, and allowing you to serve specific foods warm.
Dehydrating opens the door to more healthy food options. Dehydrating recipes include healthy chips, crackers, granola, cookies, and breads. After soaking nuts and seeds, they can be dehydrated and enjoyed as is or used in recipes. Vegan meatballs and sausage. One of my favorite recipes is raw lasagna, and when warmed in the dehydrator and served is delicious, and always a big hit at the dinner table.
Dehydrating is not cooking food. When dehydrating, temperatures are kept below 118 degrees, and often at 105-108 degrees Fahrenheit.
Foods prepared in this manner are still considered raw.
The huge benefit is that the integrity of food and its nutrients and enzymes are preserved.
There are several good brands of dehydrators on the market today. My favorite is the Sedona – combo unit. Its features make dehydrating easier and much more fun. Below is a short video that will provide more information regarding dehydration, and the Sedona unit.
