Crunchy cauliflower pizza flavor chips. Who ever thought raw, healthy vegetables could taste so good?
If you have ever though about getting a food dehydrator, I highly recommend you do.
I was given an old style round model that was super cheap and finally melted in on it’self. It was inefficient, flimsy and it was hard to regulate the heat. But the things I made were so good. I loved it.
I decided to get a top of the line model about 2 years ago and since then, I have never looked back. I bought the Aroma Professional 6 Tray Food Dehydrator. Under $150 and that includes getting the extra 3 year warranty. When you use this, the entire house smells amazing for hours.
What have I made with my food dehydrator?
Dehydrated fruit, tomatoes (I have a lovely winter supply of homegrown, sweet summer tomatoes), Raw Flax Crackers, herbs, Onion, beet chips and of course this lovely pizza chip recipe. I also decorated my Christmas tree with dehydrated oranges this year. It looked beautiful and they smelt so good.
I broke these pizza chips into chucks and used them as croutons on a big fresh salad.
Next time I make these chips, I am going to add grated sweet potato.
- ½ Cauliflower - Broken into florets
- 2 Tbs Sun Dried Tomato
- 1 Tbs Dried Onion (or fresh it takes longer to dehydrate)
- 1 Tbs Coconut Oil - Melted
- 3 Cloves Garlic - Crushed
- 2 tsp Dried Oregano or 20 Leaves of Fresh
- Freshly Ground Sea Salt and Black Pepper
- Optional.. 2 Tbs Yeast Flakes for flavor
- Blend the cauliflower in a[url href="http://www.goingcavewoman.com/Foodprocessor2" target="_blank"]food processor[/url] until it resembles fine bread crumbs.
- Put into a bowl and add remaining ingredients, stir.
- Place onto your non stick dehydrator sheets and shape into rounds. Press down so the mix sticks together. Add a splash of water if you need more liquid.
- Dehydrate for 30 mins at 145 and then lower to 115 for 8-12 hours.
