Dehydrating Soup Ingredients Today

One of my most favorite solids in my warm raw winter soups is thinly sliced dehydrated zucchini rehydrated into the soup!

One thing I discovered some years ago is how much I love how thinly sliced dehydrated organic zucchini reconstitutes itself into a yummy ingredient for my warm winter soups!

I use a 5-drawer Excalibur dehydrater. (Note that the drawers of 5-drawer Excaliburs hold twice as much as the drawers of 4-drawer Excaliburs.) I find that one SMALL zucchini sliced thinly with a mandolin type slicer will cover one full drawer. I do not use the Teflex sheets when drying the zucchini because there is nothing wet that will drip through -- and taking out the Teflex sheets decreases the drying time.

I used to make other dehydrated things for soups and I daresay I'll get into that again this winter as well. Mixtures of things like tomatoes, carrots, celery and onion which I grind up in a high-speed blender or in a food processor, possibly adding some chia seeds, sunflower seeds and the like can then be dehydrated to a crisp that will cause them to keep for a very long time. Then I just keep the mixture in a glass jar and can sprinkle a tablespoon or more into any particular raw soup I am making at the time.

I'm really wanting to move away from soy since the GMO industry has taken over soy in such a big way. How can I feel certain that the organic soy has not been contaminated? I don't. Once I run out of my current non-GMO and organic soy misos I will be switching over to non-soy misos or some other recipe entirely I think. We'll see how it goes...

Meanwhile, I hope you are staying WARM!!! Thanks for reading, and here's wishing you the Best Day EVER...!
