Using powdered veggies to make instant soups is fabulous. You can make them for long term storage or package them for individual servings in portable containers for quick lunches. They are tasty, loaded with nutrition, and a great item to have in your emergency food supply. Soup Recipes: Note, gram weights for individual servings are based on 1/4th of total soup mix weight. Your soup mix may weigh a different amount, so for accuracy, you may want to weigh soup mix yourself then divide by 4 for individual serving. Combine each full recipe of soup with 4 cups of heated broth or water and simmer until fully dissolved and thickened. Creamy Asparagus Soup (18g soup mix per cup of liquid) ¼ c nonfat milk solids 1/3 c asparagus powder ¼ c potato powder ¼ tsp pd onion ¼ tsp garlic pd ¼ Italian seasoning Salt and pepper to taste Broccoli Cheddar Soup (33 grams scup mix per cup of liquid) ¼ c nonfat milk solids 1/3 c broccoli powder ¼ c potato powder 1/3 c cheese pd 1 T powdered carrot pd ¼ tsp pd onion ¼ tsp pepper ¼ tsp salt Pinch smoked paprika Pinch dry mustard Tomato Celery Soup (26 grams soup mix per cup of liquid) ¼ c nonfat milk solids ¼ c potato powder 1/3 c. tomato powder 1 T celery powder 1 tsp celery seed ½ tsp dried garlic chip/powder ¼ tsp each salt and pepper Beet Velvet Soup (20 grams soup mix per cup of liquid) ¼ c nonfat milk solids ¼ c potato powder 1/3 c. beet powder ½ tsp dried garlic chip/powder ½ tsp pd ginger Salt and pepper to taste
Where do you get your jars with those cute checkered lids?
Watching this and drinking my smoothie. 3 weeks on a liquid diet due to facial nerve pain, and thinking I love you for this video! LOL
Could you please clarify potato powder. In Bulk Store I can find potato flour and I can find potato starch (which is absolutely essential for getting a crispy coating on anything fried) but no potato powder. They were gracious enough to get glass with hot water and try to dissolve the flour. It didn't really, so it may be a great thickener but not in an instant soup. So is it potato starch that I need, or is there a 3rd alternative I don't know about.
I’ve searched and searched can’t find asparagus powder.
In your tomato powder, is that made from skins? I am making a list of veggies to get at farmers market! These soups are awesome!
What an answer to prayer you are! I was wondering if there was a way to turn veggies into a powder and then make soups and voila! There you are! Thanks!
I love the idea of powdered veggies but I am concerned about mold growing. How are you able to recognize when it is bad ? I live in a humid climate how do you recommend storing them in such cases?
Love these ideas! Immediately added some of my home canned beets into the freeze dryer to get started. Quick question….will regular powdered milk work? Not sure what nonfat milk solids are?
Thankyou!!! Just found your channel. We have just started powdering veggies and starting to collect recipes. So excited to watch your other videos! Cheers from Ontario Canada
Do you happen to know roughly how many tomatoes would be a tablespoon for a recipe? Love your videos
Just found your videos, new subscriber! I love this idea and will put it to use soon. I cant digest dairy so I'm wondering what would you recommend as a substitute?
Thanks for posting this video and the previous one. This will go a long way to help my Husband recover from chemo and his mother to get through chemo. I have a fairly new freeze dryer but hadn’t thought to do this yet. They get so depleted from the chemo. Thank you!
Please share where you get your milk solids.
I powdered my beets thanks to your last video about food powders. Thank you so much for doing this channel. I have a similar thought process as you, so your channel has been a treasure trove for me!
I have quite a lot of dehydrated apples. I am going to see what I can do with them to get them down from one quart to maybe 1 pint of powdered apples by powdering them. Thank you
I’ve been looking for videos on food dehydration, storage and uses. I’ve just tonight found your videos and I have binged some of them and I am so grateful for them. They are so well explained and leaves so much room for creativity. Pluuuuus I can feel all the love than goes into every video, I feel like I’m right there with you. Congrats.
Can psyllium powder be substituted for potato powder? Oh and can we please have some more recipes with dehydrated fruits and veges EG: smoothies and what not.
I usually have my bone broth frozen in ice cube trays, but I like the idea of dehydrating them.
What are the milk solids? is it powdered milk ?
I have canned meats that I haven't rotated like I should have. Would dehydrating it and powdering work?
How do you do potatoes power?
What was the first thing you put into the jar ? Is that like power milk ?
I can’t wait to dehydrate some veges from my garden! Thank you so much for sharing!
If you wanted to avoid using potatoes, is there a substitute?
Do you have any comments on the Breville Pro as a dehydrator?
I have heard that if you vacuum seal these veggie powders that the powder can be sucked into your vacuum sealer and cause problems with your vacuum sealer? I read this on Food Storage Moms.
This is fanty! I made tomato power, but you have inspired me to make so much more!
Is milk solids sales as powdered milk?
If everything is freeze dried why will it only last 12-18 months on the shelf if vacuumed sealed? It should last much longer shouldn’t it?
Great video! My wife will bonkers over that idea, thank you so much for the info and your help!
R🌹O🌹S🌹E, You are the most beautiful and fragrant flower in the huge bouquet of the millions of food preservation experts! In my opinion, you're the best of the best.
Every one of your videos are so educational and your detailed teaching methods are the best I've seen anywhere! You're presentations are so professional and well planned that I rarely have any additional questions. I just wanted to thank you so much for sharing all the knowledge you have acquired over your many many years of preserving foods in a sterile & approved safe way. By watching you and using your methods, I never fear that we will become ill from the foods we preserve.
I never tire of your videos regardless of the length. I'm always so engrossed in them that I never notice the time, which always seem to fly by.
You are the brightest diamond that shines in the food preservation world. Keep shining brightly!
Thank you Diamond Rose 💎🌹, my new name for you.
Love, prayers & appreciation from Texas. ❤️🙏🏼
These would be great to use with my Vacuum sealer. I could vacuum seal packets to store and have them lay flat. Less space used. (I have small kitchen with no storage. ) Do you have your recipes in PDF format?
Thank you for this great video! I help my elderly mom and make her meals for her. A little bit of front-end prep time will ultimately save me a lot of time if I do these soups as part of her lunch.
Im online hunting for a food dehydrator now!!! Thanks for taking the time an effort to make this video!
I so enjoy your videos. I am excited to make some of the powdered veggies. I have a freeze dryer. We use the freeze dryer to seal the dried vegetables – beans and asparagus – in jars. Is it safe to use 'used' lids? Thanks, Karen
This was great… thank you! I heard you say you used freeze dried cheese powder. Can cheese be dehydrated? If so, is it as simple as laying shredded cheese on the trays or is there a special process to do so?
This is so exciting! I think I will Powder some of my freeze dried veggies tomorrow…. I might even Powder some of the chicken to add to the soups! Wonderful video Pam. You so inspire me! Thank you
I never made dry veggies but I get box mushroom and onion soup for a pot roast, and for hamburgers, etc. give it a great taste! I want to try making someday 🙂
Big thanks for all your superb videos! Excellent content in all I have watched. And also, thank you for not trying to sell every gadget you use!
Can you dehydrate green beans and make a powder?
As always, Awesome!!!! Love you guys
I use metric in all my digitizing/embroidery designs, quilting, you name it. It's so easy to figure out how long millimeters are vs 1.87-inches for example. So watching you use metric really made my day. It's just so easy. I've been making powders for ages. For example, making bone broth, after it is done and strained, I can the broth then I puree the leftover veggies and meats and pour the thick slush onto my dehydrator trays. When done I break up the sheets and run them thru the VitaMix. Lately I have been experimenting adding some of those powders to bread mix to cut way back on flour but make something interesting and delicious. Recently, I made Focaccia bread and smoked it in the smoker for 20 min at 400 degrees. It was eaten up in a flash. Anyway I have been putting these crazy things on my channel as well. You seem more excited about your powder craze than anything else you've done. You go girl!!!! Be healthy, stay safe and many blessings. Morgan
Going to try some soups when I get my dehydrator.
Thank you so much for sharing your recipes! I cannot wait to store a bunch of these. I'm very sad about my latest freeze drying experience. I freeze dried four trays of my heirloom garden tomatoes. When I bit into one of the slices it was sour! I was devastated. I expected it to be sweet and flavorful. Have you had this experience?
Hello. New to your channel. I've seen a lot of recommendations that the rings should be removed from the jars after it is sealed. What is your opinion on that? Thank you.
I always watch but I don't always take the time to say THANK YOU for the time and energy you put into your videos!!
