How can you use dried spinach flakes?
You may come across spinach flakes in your quest for building the
long term food storage in your prepper's pantry. Storing shelf-
stable ingredients, such as dehydrated and freeze
dried fruits,

Have you ever wondered how to cook with dehydrated spinach
flakes? Certainly soups and stews come to mind, but there's so

An excellent everyday use of dried spinach flakes is for your party
dips. Spinach artichoke dips are a decadent combination of
Parmesan cheese, artichoke hearts, sour cream, cream cheese,
and garlic. If you make your dips for parties with frozen spinach,
then consider using spinach flakes instead. You'll find it much

It takes time to thaw frozen spinach, but dehydrated spinach
flakes are ready to mix into the sour cream right away. What's
more, dried vegetables retain more nutritive value than their
frozen counterparts. The drying process takes out only moisture
and not the vitamins!

Dips that include dried spinach is a great way to sneak
vegetables in your kids diet, as well.

#2: Breads, breadsticks, crackers, pizza.
Another use of dried spinach is to think of it as an herb by baking
spinach into breads, breadsticks and crackers. You can also
garnish a pizza with spinach as if it were parsley or basil. Dried
spinach uses are really endless when you think of it as an herb.

#3: Casseroles.
Whether your favorite casserole is a spinach lasagne, ricotta
stuffed manicotti or some other creation, dehydrated spinach
flakes come to good use without the hassle of relying on frozen
spinach. Frozen spinach always takes more time, but dehydrated
spinach is quick and easy.

spinach flakes, you can use the flakes like parsley and sprinkle a
boost of nutrition onto almost anything.

Green eggs and ham, anyone? Seriously, you can garnish any egg
dish such as an omelet, frittata, quiche or soufflé with an ample
dose of dehydrated spinach to enrich the nutrition and boost

#6: Meatloafs and meatballs.
With the parsley, be sure to add spinach flakes to your favorite
meatball recipe. If you have kids or grandkids, this is a great way
to boost their intake of vegetables.

The kids will never suspect you've used dried spinach and you can
rest assured that they are eating their veggies.

#7: Pasta.
Pasta and casseroles are a great way to use spinach flakes.

  • Pasta Sauces. Sprinkle a few spinach flakes into your
    marinara pasta or favorite spaghetti sauce to boost the
    nutritional value.

  • Spinach noodles: Make spinach noodles by using dehydrated
    spinach flakes. Be sure to add the spinach to your spaghetti
    sauce as well.

#8: Ramen noodles, bouillon and broths.
You don't even need to cook with spinach flakes, you can just add
it to your ready made soups, bouillon or broths.

    cup of flakes with 3/4 cup water. Mind you it won't have the
    same texture as fresh or frozen spinach, because it's
    chopped, but you also won't have that unappealing slimy
    finish of canned spinach.

  • Rice dishes. If you flavor your rice with broth, add spinach
    flakes to the broth first to rehydrate them.

  • Mashed potatoes and stuffed potatoes. Add spinach to
    your mashed potatoes the way you would use brocolli.

your fresh, frozen dehydrated ingredients for a home made
smoothie. Blend dried spinach flakes into smoothies and you'll
