  • Spinach Powder.....

     Just ordered spinach powder and I have no idea what to do with it.

    Any ideas?  Can I make dips?

    Thank you all so much.

     Make dips, yes but you can also makecreamed spinach and serve as a veggie for dinner.

    I bought 2 lbs of dried spinach (flakes) and have made creamed spinach and it was very good. Dehydrated veggies don't take up much storage room, I  de-hydrate squash, broccoli,carrots, green beans, peas,even thin sliced potatoes, apples and bananas.

    You can also buy tomato powder, it comes in very handy for sauces, gravy, soups and such.

  • Re: Spinach Powder.....

    I bought my dehydrated Spinach Flakes from San Francisco Herb Company.

    For other dehydrated bulk vegetables, fruits and tomato powder check out:

    waltonfeed.com 

    this company is a supplier of Mormon survival foods. Even if you don't buy anything, their webiste is very interesting and informative. The company is located in a very small town in the mountains of s.e. Idaho .

    You can also Google either dehydrated spinach or tomato powder and find a supplier closer to where you live. Healthfood stores or better yet, healthfood co-opsusually carry tomato powder or can get it for you. I like the convenience of it.

     My Italian market sells it and tomato powder and several others. I've always wanted to buy some but haven't yet. I did some research and found some recipes to use it in so I'm ready when I do actually buy a bag. Of course you can make pasta with it but here are other uses.

    Please PM me if you try any recipes you like with it.

     I ordered from www.myspicesage.com

    I tried to order some things I have never tried before, spinach powder, hickory smoked sea salt, cheddar cheese powder, applewood smoked sea salt, hawaiin sea salt, sesame sesoning.

    I am excited to get started experimenting!

     Thanks, Chefly.

    I certainly will let you know if I try any of these recipes.

  • Re: Spinach Powder.....

     Thank you!

    My brother sent some applewood and Hickory bacon smoked sea salt and we like it. Have fun experimenting. I love trying new things! I bet you could also put a little spinach powder into fruit smoothies for green food smoothies. I make green smoothies all the time and if you put a lot of fruit you don't even know you are drinking vegetables too.

    I order from Honeyvillegrain.com quite a bit and love their dried corn. We eat it like chips, straight from the can. It is so unbelievably sweet, yet crunchy but not rock hard.

     Mercy sakes, I feel as if a whole new world is opening up before me!

    I have got to try the dried corn, that sounds great.  I have a very finnicky 6 year old, who may like that.  I will also have to sneak some spinach powder into his smoothies!

    Thank you so much.

  • Re: Spinach Powder.....

     I am constantly amazed at what is out there to try. I first tried the dried corn at a spice shop in Milwaukee, WI and loved it. I took a chance on this brand but the reviews were so good I wasn't too worried. It is just as good as the corn fromMilwaukee and as good as the reviews state.

    Food is my playground! Lol!

    Have fun.

    Since I live in the Himnterlands of sw North Dakota the nearest healthfood store in 150 mi away (one way)  I am forced  to do mosty mail order nusiness when I want something that is not a daily ordinary thing in farm country. The nearest Italian market is in Minneapolis/Minnesota,about 600 mi away and to the west it would be Seattle. The website of the San Francisco Herb co I have bought from for some years is  www.SFHerb.com.

    There is another company by the name San Francisco Hern and Natural Food company but have not really looked at tgeir site too much.

    I have bought a lot of emergency storgage food from waltonfeed.com, incl 50 lbs of powdered milk, even with shipping from Idaho to ND it is cheaper than what it costs  per lbs n the stores.

    If you are into organic healthfood, the company we buy from through our buying club  has expanded their delivery routes to selected places in the following states: Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, OKlahoma,Minnesota, Iowa,Missouri and Arkansas.

    It pays to belong to a buying club or co-op.

    Thanks a lot for the recipes, Chefly, I will have to try the casserole.

     Grelo,

    I hope you like the casserole. I was at the Italian market today to buy some artichoke hearts and noticed they also have artichoke powder, roasted chestnut powder and garbanzo bean flour (but that isn't unusual) in addition to the spinach powder. I wish I had a lot of extra money. I'd love to go on a shopping spree there!
