View Full Version : My dehydrator arrived - what should I make first?
05-31-2006, 10:26 PM
My dehydrator arrived today (a present to myself for being all raw for 30 days in May so the timing couldn't have been better) but it is still in the box and, to be honest, I'm a bit intimidated by it. I'm a newbie, afterall.
Any advice on what to make first so that I'm not disappointed I bought the damn thing?

Alissa's crepes. You have to dehydrate banana fruit leather first. They are so good MMM yum yum yum yummmmm.. I made some yesterday and again today. :D

For me, it's Alissa's corn tortillas. They are not only fantastic tasting, but they really fill you up! I make a mole sauce with them and then wrap fresh veggies in the tortillas and cover them with mole sauce. It is very rich and satisfying. My husband (NOT a raw foodist) even loves it.

Oh, the pesto stuffed mushrooms, the pizza wraps, the meatloaf, the enchiladas, the ---- well, okay, ANYTHING in Alissa's book pretty much LOL

So happy that you received your dehydrator. You will get alot of pleasure out of it. Try simple foods first to get a feel for the machine. Like apples for example.
Fruit Leather is easy ! I use bananas, almonds and shredded coconut.Process and spread out onto teflex sheets and dehydrate for 14 hours or so.The you can tear it up into strips and keep in ziploc bags.They are great snack food to take with you!
Carrot Pecan Burgers are pretty fool proof too! But you must make the curry sauce to go with!
For me, it's the Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms and Mango Leather.
Not together, of course. lol

I was also going to suggest fruit leather, I make it all the time and we all love it. Alissa's crepes are soooo good! Also the pesto stuffed mushrooms, flax crackers and corn tortillas. I also just dry fruit like bananas and apples for snacks. Have fun with it!

What are the proportions for the bananas, almonds and coconut? That sounds super yummy!
