I just bought a dehydrator and I want to make something fun. Anybody have any recipes or ideas? Or websites? I haven't had any luck finding websites cause my computer's so darn slow. Thanks!

I just got a dehyrator too. So far I've only made dried fruit slices. I found this site that has some recipes I'd like to try.

My dehydrator is constantly going, One of the simpliest but very yummy things is to dehydrate, zuchinni slices, they turn out like crisps.



What sort of things are you after, i can give you recipes for burgers, biscuits, crispbreads?

vicky- I don't think your website showed up. That's all I could find too! I did a search for pressure cooker recipes, cause I just bought one of those too, and all I could find was meaty stuff. Ox tongue and rattlesnake ribs! Eww.



draekyn- I'm gonna try the butterfinger things from that website. They look good.



rawmama- I'm looking for anything tasty. I'm pretty opened-minded about it. Anything you have will help.

Does anyone know what would happen if you put a very moist cookie in a dehydrator? Would the cookie not be moist anymore? I hate moist cookies It's a problem I have when I use applesauce in cookies bleh.

i LOVE my dehydrator, though i use it mostly to preserve food from the garden (which comes too many too fast for a two person household-- even when we give it away) but my favorite recipe for it goes like this (from How It All Vegan):



Pepper Tofu Jerky



1 lb. extra-firm tofu

1/2 c. soy sauce

3-4 TB. liquid smoke

1/8 c. water

1 TB. onion powder

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 TB. pepper

1 tsp. sweetner



cut tofu into strips about 1/4" thick. combine all other ingredients in a tub and marinate the tofu overnight. next day lay out in dehydrator and let it go until it's the consistency you like.



this really is meat like and will please omnis and veg*ns who aren't afraid of the "meaty-ness".

OMG, I was a hardcore jerkey eater before going veg. When I get my dehydrator, I'm gonna so try that, dirtysole.



Can you do the same with fruits and make fruit jerkey? I've HEARD of it before...

if you cook or puree the fruit first then dehydrate, you get fruit leather, similar to, but a whole lot healthier than fruit rollups (and whole lot yummier-- i do this with applesauce in fall). if you leave the fruit cut in slives you get, well, dried fruit... which i suppose is a little "jerky like" in consistency. good for people who like to chew (like me!)





oh oh! forgot to mention that to make the fruitrollup thingy you will need a plastic insert that is like a fruit leather tray to spread the stuff on while it dries so it doesn't fall through the screen. mine came with one so i'm sorry i don't know where to get one.

Tofu Jerky



Ingredients (use vegan versions):



*\ta few bricks of extra firm tofu.

*\t1 cup of liquid smoke

*\t3 cups of soy sauce

*\t3 TBSPs of vegan brown sugar

Directions:





well i do it with a dehydrator but i suppose you could do it in the oven. anyway, you mix the liquid smoke, soy sauce, and brown vegan sugar together. then cut the tofu into 1/4" thick strips. let it sit in the marinade overnight. take the strips out and put them in the dehydrator. let them dry for about 8 hours or until everything is chewy and very dark brown.



Serves: as much tofu as you marinate.



Preparation time: about a day and half.



I found this on vegweb.com. I haven't had the privilege to buy a dehydrator, but this sounds like a good recipe; it was rated four stars.

I make granola in mine, though I haven't made any in a while. I'll look for the recipe, though. It's yummy, and can be made with very little oil.
