I would suggest the Almond Butter balls, or the Chili, everything is so good so any of them would work.
Something with few ingredients and easy to prepare so you gain confidence that you can do it. :)
All the pates, if you have the ingredients and a food processor, are a snap to whip up, and delicious! We had the mock salmon for the first time last week, and it was a winner.

Congratulations on your investment! Alissa's recipes are wonderful and varied!:p
I haven't used my dehydrator in months and usually stick to the easy recipes that can be made in the food processor (or blender).;)
I really like the indian spinach dip. Fast & Yummy!
I eat the mock salmon or not tuna pates, and carrot pecan burgers when I want something hearty.
I don't bother to dehydrate the burgers though, I just eat them like a pate.
I also like the Mashed Potatoes made with cauliflower.
All the best,
The plain and simple flax crackers, flavoured with just ginger, are my favourites of all the cracker recipes; the Indian spinach dip is magic, and the carrot-pecan (or is it pecan-carrot? -- haven't got my book beside me) are absolute faves of mine, eaten with the simple curry sauce.
There's only one thing in that book that I've tried that in my opinion didn't work and that's the recipe with long strips of egg plant in it -- can't remember whether it was a lasagne or a moussaka. I expect it was just me and it probably works for others, but I wouldn't start with this one!
Great, thanks! Canīt wait to try them out!

So glad you posted this as I had posted a few days ago since I got her book this past Saturday.
I made the Fudge balls first but don't use almond pulp like I did for the almond butter. Also the Better Than Beef is really good and the Brocolli with Cheese is divine. Also tried her cauliflower and mashed potatoes but don't use the 2 cups of water try less first because mine was watery but divine tasting.
Can't wait to see what you make first. I'm starting to read the book from the beginning and there are so many recipes I want to make. The calzones are out of this world but haven't tried them yet but StarFire suggested that one to me.
The Chili is fantastic. It makes a lot so make sure you have a BIG bowl but I finish the whole thing by myself in a matter of days - so good.

EVERY LAST ONE:D
I took your advice and tryed the indian spinach dip and it was really good!
Reminds me of something Iīve eaten at an Indian restaurant.
Next up is the calzonepizza, a big projekt but hopefully worth the trouble. :)
Thank you for your responses everyone!
I liked Alissa's blueberry pie, marinara sauce, and gaucamole recipe! Just to name a few:D I think I will make some gaucamole now!
