how to dehydrate broccoli

Stock your pantry with preserved greens.

Dehydrating is a great way to preserve your gardens summer harvest of broccoli. By dehydrating it, you can have broccoli whenever we want, without going shopping or buying out of season. The process is easy, and you are left with dried produce that takes up very little room and can be stored for months.

To prepare broccoli for dehydrating it needs a simple steam or blanch pre-treatment first. The process will turn the florets a lovely bright green colour, stop enzymatic reactions, slow down decomposition and speed the drying time.

Once you've segmented your broccoli, don't throw away those stems. You can actually slice and dehydrate every part, even the outer leaves! All sorts of nutritious dried vegetables can be combined and ground in the Vibe Blender System to make a super greens smoothie powder. The method coming soon.   

dehydrating broccoli


Dehydrated broccoli can be rehydrated and used in everyday cooking or hiking meals. To rehydrate broccoli, soak in hot water for 15- 30 minutes or soak in water in the fridge overnight. Dehydrated broccoli can be added in soups and casseroles without rehydrating first. 


Frozen broccoli has already been pre-treated and is ready to place on the dehydrator trays as soon as it has defrosted.
