Cooking with rehydrated vegetables
« on: August 22, 2013, 04:42:04 PM »
So I dehydrated some trinity - onion, celery, and bell pepper. Now I want to make some red beans & rice from my preps.

When I'm making this with fresh veggies, I'd saute them for a bit before adding to the beans. Can I saute rehydrated vegetables just as if it were fresh, or should I just add them in without sauteing?

As a side note, is it possible to dehydrate already sauted stuff? Like if I cooked it and then dehydrated it? I'd probably need to do it sans cooking oil obviously, but would it work?

I've never sauteed dried veg.  I guess you could add a bit of water and the veg to the pan and see what happens.  I wouldn't add any fat till the veg we re-hydrated.  What did you end up doing?

When I do this I rehydrate in cold water for a couple of hours and then saute as I would fresh veggies.
