What are some of your favorite recipes to make without needing a dehydrator? I want one so bad, and it looks like there are so many tasty recipes you can make with one, but for now I can't afford one! Today I made collard roll ups and date nut torte from Alissa's book and they were delish!!! Any other ideas?

The mock salmon pate is good. You can use it as a dip for celery. Also the Noasted Turkey. We put that in lettuce leaves, topped with marinara and sprouts.

Ooh, glad to hear that! That was the next recipe I was going to try! I was also wondering how I'd serve it...my only thought was as a dip for veggies, but a wrap, that sounds even better! Thanks Allison!

Oh, glad to hear you like the salmon pate, that was the recipe I was going for next! Aside from a dip, would that be good in a lettuce wrap? Guess I'll have to give it a try. Noasted turkey, I haven't come across that recipe yet. I will have to see what that one is all about. Thanks Allison! :)
Hi Lissy, this is one of the first recipes I made before I got my dehydrator. I love them!! The cumin is key. The first time I only used a little. The second time, I used too much. They were better (to me) with just a sprinkle of cumin.
I was wanting something like tacos and came up with this recipe.
3 ears raw corn
1/2 medium zucchini
1/2 large onion
2 medium tomatoes
celtic sea salt to taste
cumin to taste
squeeze of lime
Cut the corn off the ears then "cream" the ears by pushing the knife blade down them. My salt is the large grain so at this point, I added the salt to the corn to dissolve, then set aside. Dice tomatoes, onion and zucchini. Add corn, cumin & lime. Stuff lettuce leaves and gobble down! They're really juicy so you may have to stand over the sink to eat them! We could not believe how good they were!!

Hi there Lizzy- this recipe has saved me from destruction! It is so good! I eat it on top of a bed of shredded lettuce or cabbage- amazing!
I know the recipe calls for a dehydrator- but it really is only to 'warm' it. I just made this 2 days ago, and didn't bother with doing that at all- it tasted just as good! And it gets better as it sits in the fridge... it is a winner! And all fresh ingredients!
I added about 1/4 cup of corn to this too and about a 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro the 2nd time I made it... yummy! But the orginal is great too- also, it can be eaten right away after you mix it. Quick, great, and fresh!

It just needs a food processor - I got mine for 30.00. In case you don't have the recipe: 1 c. pine nuts, 1 c. macadamia nuts, 1 c. cashews (I soaked them all day) juice of 1/2 a lemon, 2 garlic cloves, water (it says 2 T, but I used about 1/2 c.) I also added a scallion and 5 large basil leaves. Put it over peeled summer and zucchini squash. I used the spiral cutter instead of a vegetable peeler.... I could also use that as a veggie dip.

Wow, that looks sooo good! I read that thread before (Yani's raw chili) and saw everyone one raving about it, but I wasn't sure how it'd be at room temp. Mmmm...it's making me hungry just looking at it! Thanks!
