Adding dehydrated foods to your culinary repertoire can add much of fun, flavour and satisfaction to whole and living foods cuisine. The dehydrator is used to make cookies, crackers, breads, burgers, and other delights at controlled temperatures to create living food that is satisfying and nutritious.
- add variety to a living foods diet
- enable you to eat raw versions of your favourite cooked foods: cookies, crackers, cereals, breads, etc.
- add calorie dense foods to a plant-based and/or living foods diet
- maintain nutrients that are often destroyed when cooking conventionally
- can conveniently be made in batches and kept in sealed containers in your cupboards or in the freezer
- often use sprouted grains which makes the gluten and other components in grains easier to digest
- preserve local seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs for enjoyment in the colder months … tomatoes, fruit and fruit leathers, teas, etc.
- are great camping and trekking fare
- Rosemary Garlic Almond Toast - use up nut milk and juice pulp in these delicious storable crackers
- Coconut Macaroons - this crowd pleasing cookie is simple and wholesome
- Apple Raisin Cookies - feel good about serving these kid pleasing treats
- Indian Ocean Crisps - these mysterious treats are as nutritious as they are delicious
- Cheesy Kale Chips - make your own crunchy yummy green goodness for a fraction of the store bought price
- Simple Flax Crackers - complement any soup, dips or spread with these versatile crackers
- Sweet ‘N Spiced Seeds - sprinkle these on salads and veggies for a tantalizing change
- I will also discuss fruit, vegetable, tea and herb preservation.
- You will take home samples of all of these. (Bring containers)
As a special bonus if you join this workshop and don’t yet own a dehydrator, all attendees can purchase a 9-tray Excalibur dehydrator through me for a discounted price. Let me know if you would like to order this prior to the workshop so that you can take it home with you.
Keep in mind that although a dehydrator makes the most satisfying creations, many of these recipes can be made in an oven (particularly a convection oven) at low temperatures.
Cost: $99 + HST (Includes lecture, recipes, and samples to bring home)
