Default Dehaydrator recipies.

Going to buy dehydrator this week and start preparing for a long trip coming up in a couple weeks. Does anyone have any great recipies that can be put into a pouch and brought to life with boiling water. Several recipies or other suggestions for packing about a 7-9 days worth of food would be appreciated. I am trying to avoid the pre bought dehaydrated meals for reasons mentioned in other posts. Mainly because they taste Blaaaa!!

Thanks.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained!!

Soak up some strips of beef in hot sauce, dehydrate it, then add it to Sidekicks Stroganoff. Some favorite dehydrated veggies I like to add to standard pasta meals are:
Asparagus
Brocolli
Cauliflower
Mushrooms
Sweet Peppers

Dehydrated veggies make a wonderful addition, and is definitely worth doing.
Lean ham also is good for dehydrating and rehydrates well too.

I don't mean to hijack your topic Jeffster (sorry!), but I was wondering if anyone has any experience dehydrating Chili. How long does it take? Does it even work? I love taking chili on the trail, but it is SO heavy. Thanks!

I really recommend the book the Backpacker Gourmet. It's recipes are excellent and it is really worth the money.

Awesome! Thanks guys! And Red, as soon as we pick up our dehydrator, I'm going to head over to Chapters to pick up the book. Thanks for the suggestion!

hhhmmm - interesting. Might have to buy one of these, and have Mr and Mrs Goat name it for me, since they picked such neat names for theirs [8D]

Concerning chili, there's some dehydrated stuff that I've found at Save-On called "Damn good chili" made by Bear Creek. All you do is add tomato paste, which you can either buy in tubes or just pack it in an airtight container. Tastes pretty darn good.

Regarding dehydrating chili, yes it is very easy. Doesn't take very long either

Great thread that is too Blackfly, thanks for digging it up

Stinky sox an' all - now where's monster, are you reading this????

I still have a dehydrator on loan, I should try some of these tasty recipes. Last carrots I dehydrated obviously were still a little damp. Dunno what I did wrong, but they were brown and burnt looking, but a few days on the trail they ended up in the campfire 'cos they looked mouldy [:0][xx(]

strawberries sure smell good when dehydrating though.

Carrots should feel like a dried earlobe when they are done.[)] And be quite wrinkly and small.


Hey Jeffster, my favorite recipe:

Using dried hamburger and green beans, a little ginger, and some garlic. Rehydrate the burger and beans at lunch time, and then at dinner, heat it all up with a bit of oil: and cook minute rice.

Mix up and eat. Add a little soy sauce and it's delicious at the end of the day.

Takes more work than just boiling water though. But it packs very light and compact, and is good for longer trips.

These days I'm just doing pasta and pesto. Keepin it simple, stupid

They only stunk till they crusted up... then they were gone. And I'm still wondering what happened to them [V]
