:) It contains potatoes and we don't know what to do with them other than potato chips.
Can I make potato soup out of them, i use to love it.
When I tried to dehydrate them they came out tough and starchey.
Any ideas are welcome.

If you don't find something to do with them, can you ask the people who provide the box to substitute something else?
The short time I belong to such a program, we picked them up, so we could trade with other people if we didn't want something.

you can cut the potatoes then soak in water over night, this removes alot of the starch, then you can marinate in oil and salt and dehydrate, makes better chips that way.
they also make pretty good noodles in soup, but soak first

This is from "12 Steps to Raw" By Victoria Boutenko...I haven't tried it yet...
Un-Chicken Noodle Soup
Blend together very well for 1-2 minutes:
2 cups water
1/2 cup coconut (shredded unsulfered)
Add the following and blend for about 1 minute:
2 cups celery (chopped)
2 tablespoons Bragg's Liquid Aminos (I would use Nama Shoyu)
1 clove garlic
pepper to taste, if desired
Pour into a large bowl and add:
1 medium carrot (grated)
1/4 of a bunch parsley (chopped)
2 medium raw potatoes, grated or processed with Saladacco
sliced mushrooms (optional)
If you try this, let us know how you like it...

I thought of recently trying that UN-chicken noodle soup! I think you should soak the potatoes to remove some of the starch......let me know if you try it, and how it turns out.

I'm really curious about this one as well, since I think I have all the ingredients and like the non-veggie-smoothie soup idea. Think it would work without a high-speed blender? (I have a Kitchen Aid Classic.) Anywho, hope somone tries it out soon!

I imagine so. Coconut and celery aren't tough to blend, especially with that much water.
