Raw Food Dehydrator Recipes
Just because you choose to use a dehydrator for healthy diets doesn't mean you have to sacrifice taste. There are many raw food recipes that use dehydrators that provide flavorful treats for any occasion. From jerky and fruit leathers to chips and even cookies you can find great raw food recipes that are easy to make and taste great too. Here are a few to get you started.
Kale Chips – If you've moved to a raw food diet and still have cravings for potato chips consider trying this recipe for tasty kale chips. You'll need one large bunch of kale, 3 tablespoons of dried dill, 5 tablespoons of natural yeast, 3 tablespoons of raw soy sauce and ½ teaspoon of salt. First peel off pieces of kale from the bunch and place in a bowl. You'll want to keep the pieces big since it will shrink when dehydrated. Put in all the ingredients in the bowl with the kale. Wash your hands thoroughly and then mix all the ingredients by hand making sure each leaf gets its share of the mixture. Be careful not to have the leaves too oily since this will prevent the chips from dehydrating properly. Place the chips on a single layer on dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for one hour at 120 degrees. Then reduce the heat to about 105 degrees and continue to dehydrate for two to three more hours checking on the chips periodically.
Fruit Roll-Ups – Much healthier than the sugary fruit roll-ups you remember as a kid raw food recipe fruit roll-ups are just as tasty and very easy to make. Try starting with four apples, two mangoes, two bananas and 1-2 tablespoons of raw agave nectar. Put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree until you get a smooth and creamy mixture. Make sure all the fruit chunks are well pureed. Spread the mixture on a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 118 or 120 degrees for eight to twelve hours. You want the fruit lather to be pliable but not sticky. Cut into equal size stripes and roll into cylinder shapes. Feel free to add other fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and some coconut oil for a flavorful snack.
Tomato Flat Bread – Great for an open face sandwich, snacking or with your favorite spread, tomato flat bread will be a favorite in your family. You'll need two cups of soaked wheat, one cup of almonds (soaked overnight), one cup of ground flax, one clove of garlic, one can of tomato puree and one cup of water. Soak the almonds and grain separately and drain when you are ready to make the bread. Start your food processor and put the garlic clove in and when it is fully processed add the almonds. Place this mixture in a large bowl and then put the wheat in the processor and process until a mash is made. Put the mash in the bowl with the almonds and garlic. Add the flax and mix together. Mix in well the water and tomato puree. Spread the mixture on a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for approximately one hour at 145 degrees.
