View Full Version : dehydrator favorites?
09-25-2007, 06:38 PM
I should receive my 9 tray Excalibur tomorrow. Can someone suggest their favorite dehydrator recipes that they always want to have on-hand? I have Alissa's book.
Thanks so much!!

Good for you! I got a 5 tray within the last year. I have tried a hand full of recipes-some good and some bad. I would have to say my favorite is actually just plain flax seed crackers. I am still trying out recipes. Have fun and just start experimenting like me.

You must be stoaked. I also have the 9 tray with timer model and love it. One of my favourite recipes is Eggplant Bacon. SchoolofRawk's is my favourite version of it.
Rawkinlocs posted this awhile back:
But here is a slightly different version as posted by SchoolofRAWK and the one I just made yesterday...SOOO good! I had started adding a little liquid smoke before and using the above recipe, but this time I did pretty much the one below with a few minor modifications as I noted:
1 large eggplant peeled and thinly sliced lengthwise. (wide veggie-peelers work)
Marinate in a mixture of:
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 Tablespoons maple syrup (rawkinlocs note: you can sub with agave if you want)
3 Tablespoons Ume Plum vinegar (rawkinlocs note: I was out of this, so I used nama shoyu instead)
2 Tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon liquid smoke (rawkinlocs note: I didn't use this amount...only one small capful and it was quite enough...I've learned in the past that too much of this makes it bitter once dehydrated...at least in MY experience)
Marinade for 2 or more hours. . . I like 6 or so. Spread them out on the teflex and dehydrate for 8 hours and then turn the "bacon" and dry another 8 hours.
I use Braggs myself for the Ume Plum Vinegar.

I love, love, love Alissa's rye bagels. And I always keep some flax seed crackers around. Alissa has some good recipes of those in her book as well.

- Alissa's tortillas (spread thin, dried to crunchy and seasoned more)
- Onion bread
- Flax crackers (ground flax, not soaked whole ones) and "done" crackers topped with a raw cheeze sauce and then dehydrated a little

i think rawkinlocs came up with this one...
2 1/2 lbs sweet onions, peeled
1 cup ground sunflower seeds
1 cup ground golden flax seeds
1/2 cup olive oil
3 oz. Nama Shoyu
Put onions in food processor with 's' blade and process until small pieces, (but not mush). Put in mixing bowl with the other ingredients and mix thoroughly. The flax will absorb liquid. Smooth onto teflex sheets* about 1/4" thick and place in dehydrator for 5 hours, turning over for another 3-4 hours or until dry and crispy.
Either break into pieces or cut with a pizza cutter, and store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
*If you don't have an Excalibur dehydrator, any type will do - just use natural unbleached parchment paper instead of the teflex sheets. If you have an excalibur dehydrator, you can set the temp. at 145 degrees for 1-2 hours, then back down to 105 degrees.

Mmm. Russell's lasagna (search). And tapenade stuffed 'shrooms to pop!
