Dehydrating foods is one of my favorite ways to have food storage. But sometimes I forget I have jars of it in my pantry. This is just a quick tip that I used the other night for dinner. I added dehydrated spinach to my pizza sauce before spreading it on the dough. I'm probably the last person on the planet to figure this out, but I figured I might as well share.
I simply crumbled the dried spinach in my hand and stirred it into the sauce. No one knew it was there! Plus it added a subtle flavor to the pizza that I really enjoyed. I also love sneaking all that extra nutrition from the spinach into the foods we normally eat. It was a busy night when I made the pizza and it was a grab-n-go type meal. A few of my kids were eating it in the car on the way to an activity. So the pizza with the spinach was dinner and a veggie all in one! This is just one more way that I use my food storage in everyday living. Think of all the other dehydrated foods that could be powdered, in a food processor or blender, and then added to soups, stews, sauces, etc. You'll become known as the sneaky chef! Well, if anyone finds out that you're sneaking veggies into their dinner :) And once you're done with the spinach, sealing up the extra spinach for use later on is so simple using a food saver.
