Freeze dried foods came a long way in recent years. Once known for its slightly gritty taste and bland flavor, manufacturers went back to the chopping block to come up with dishes that everyone will love. Whether you keep an emergency supply of food on hand or just want something fast and convenient, check out some of the great dishes you can now buy.
Potatoes and Chicken Pot Pie
With delicious chunks of real chicken, pieces of potatoes and slices of other vegetables, the potatoes, and chicken pot pie taste like something your mom made. While it’s perfect as a main dish, you’ll also love mixing up a bowl after a long day at work or after working outside.
Tomato Basil Soup with Pasta
When you have a bowl of this hearty soup on hand, the only thing missing from the perfect meal is a grilled cheese sandwich. The rich flavor of the basil comes through in every bite and cuts through the natural sweetness of the tomato.
Granola is a great and naturally healthy snack, and freeze dried granola is a great thing to keep on hand. Grab a handful when you need a fast snack, or sprinkle a few teaspoons on a bowl of yogurt for breakfast. It also tastes great served over ice cream for a fast dessert.
Freeze Dried Strawberries
The freeze drying process does something magical to fresh fruits that bring out the natural sweetness of those fruits. When you keep a bag of freeze dried strawberries in your home, you’ll always have a fast snack ready for you.
Freeze Dried Peaches
As great as strawberries taste, freeze dried peaches might even taste a little better. Toss the fruits in a little juice or alcohol to plump up the peaches before serving over ice cream, or snack on the fruit right out of the bag.
When you need a fast dessert for a weekday dinner, reach for this delicious vanilla pudding. All you need to do is add a little water and wait a few minutes. If you want something a little heartier, pair the pudding with some freeze dried fruit or caramel sauce.
