"My son hates vegetables!"
"My daughter never eats any of the fruits and veggies I cook for her!"
If your children refuse to eat any of their greens, how about using dehydrated vegetable powder as a supplement to boost the vitamin and mineral content of their food? You can sprinkle the powder on rice and meat, even in soups and drinks. Or you can use this powder as a baking ingredient for natural colours.
Warning: Do not use this powder as a substitute for vegetables!
So, let's get started on sprinklin'!
How to make dehydrated vegetable powder?
Yield: Up to your preference
Preparation time: 9 to 10 hours
Ingredient: Vegetable of your choice
- Food processor
- Food blender
First, steam or blanch your vegetables until they are cooked.
Next, using a food processor, process the greens into pieces. If you do not have a food processor, you can cut your slices manually. Smaller slices are recommended to reduce the time required to dehydrate the greens.
Dehydrate your vegetables for about 6 to 8 hours at around 60 to 75 degrees Celsius. Check periodically at every 3 or 4 hour intervals to see if the vegetables have been dehydrated.
Break the vegetables into pieces. Add them to a blender and blend them into fine bits.
- Keep the powder in airtight containers. Store the powder in a cool and dry place.
