dehydrated beans

Enjoy your favourite veg anytime, anywhere.

Green beans are so many people's favourite vegetable - with the Breeze food dehydrator, you can Luv them all year-round! Once dried, they take up a fraction of the space, and store for months, if not years.  Beans can be easily re-hydrated or tossed straight into homemade soups, stews, curries and noodles anywhere, anytime.

There are many different types of beans and any variety of fresh pod bean (or string bean) can be dehydrated following this method. To get the best out of your fresh beans a simple blanching pre-treatment is essential. Blanching will stop the enzymatic activities that cause oxidation as well relax the plant fibres and help the beans dehydrate quicker.

Dehydrating frozen green beans

You can also dehydrate frozen beans. Store bought frozen beans have already gone through a pre-treatment so you can simple defrost and use the beans straight from the bag – no prep is necessary.

How to rehydrate beans

To use your dried green beans either re-hydrate them in boiling water for 15–30 minutes or add them directly to foods that have plenty of liquid and cook for at least 30 minutes. When rehydrated they won’t look as plump as fresh beans but they will deliver all the healthy goodness.
