Fill Your Pantry with Dried Vegetables

dried_vegetablesDehydrated (dried) vegetables are simply thatvegetables that have been dried, either using heat, the sun or air, and then packaged. They are easily RE-hydrated by placing in boiling water for 2 minutes and then can be incorporated into your favorite recipes. You can use them dry, right out of the package in soups or stews, or rehydrate them for use in casseroles, dips and other dishes. They taste so good you can rehydrate them and eat them all by themselves!

You may be scrunching up your face at the thought of using dried vegetables, but you would be amazed at the benefits:

  • Lower Sodium: unlike canned vegetables, sodium is not used for preservation
  • Long Shelf Life: dried veggies are not subject to freezer burn; no waste; always fresh
  • Nutritious: nutrients are not diminished, as they may be when canned or frozen
  • Time Saving: no more washing, peeling, chopping; use as is or rehydrate quickly
  • Space Saving: uses no freezer space and very little shelf space
  • Flavorful: dried veggies, when rehydrated, taste almost like garden-fresh

Our vegetable flakes, available in 3-lb. or 15-lb. bags, are perfect for stews and casseroles. Dehydrated potatoes, carrots, red and green bell peppers and celery saves you the time of shopping, storing, washing, peeling and chopping, as well as cooking time. Just add meat, your favorite stock, some spices and the dried or rehydrated vegetable flakes.

Use our jalapeno chips just like you would fresh jalapenos. Make jalapeno cornbread, add to your favorite bean dips, make jalapeno queso or spice up any side or main dish.

Our All Natural Soup Greens, also available in 3-lb. or 15-lb. bags, are a mixture of onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, celery, tomatoes and spinach. You can use them right out of the bag in your favorite soup recipe, or rehydrate them to use as a flavorful side dish. You can make a complete vegetarian meal when you serve them on a baked spud or mixed with mashed potatoes.

Imagine how much time you can free up. Imagine how much money you'll save. Imagine how your family will love the new lip-smacking-good concoctions you'll be serving. You'll have more time and more dough (pun intended) to get creative in the kitchen.

Try any one, or more, of our dried vegetables and we're sure you'll come back for more!
