Add instant flavour to so many dishes

If you are blessed with an abundance of springtime mushrooms or just love to buy unique varieties, dehydrating is a great way to preserve them. Many specialty mushroom varieties can only be harvested during certain times of the year, so stocking your pantry with dried mushrooms means you can add them to your favourite meals all year round.

Mushrooms pack a hearty nutritional punch & dry beautifully in the Breeze food dehydrator, locking in all the benefits and not only retaining, but even gaining flavour in the process. When rehydrated in hot water, the texture is almost identical to that of fresh.

One of the easiest ways to add flavour to a dish is to add some stock or broth. Mushrooms make a great stock base for meals because they have a deep bold flavour that's similar to beef, which makes them popular in vegan and vegetarian dishes. Dehydrated mushrooms can be easily blended into powder and mixed into your meals for a boost of plant-based umami flavour or added to water to replace liquid stock.

Mushroom powder will instantly elevate a range of dishes, from breakfasts and burgers to soups and stews. The versatility of mushroom powder makes it such an amazing condiment to keep in your pantry. 

For variations on this basic mushroom powder see our dehydrator veggie stock powder recipe. For a less mushroom tasting stock you might like to include onion, garlic, leek, tomato, or herbs. Your imagination and creativity are the only limits to this awesome powder.
