Dehydrator Diaries - Crazy 4 Curry

Hi there.  So glad you guys liked my snack post, it was fun...maybe more in the future?!?  For those that asked, the bunny breakfast boards can be found here at Nova Naturals.  I have one for each girl, but I would totally love to get new ones this year with another animal....anyone out there a woodworker?  Couldn't find any on Etsy...
The verse I wrote out is one we used in our Waldorf playgroup. I do not know the original author, but it's a pretty common one used in Waldorf schools. 

On to the dehydrating!

I love curry, I really do.  It's no surprise that my D was busy wafting curry smells all over the neighborhood last week.  Many of the items here were on our snack plates from yesterdays' post.

Here you see Curried Almonds, Curry Crackers and Crooked Curry-licious! 

Can you see them actually?  Geez, that picture is awful.  Most of my major dehydrating prep is at night after the littles have gone to sleep.  I can get more done in a smaller time frame that way.  Hence the dark and out of focus photo.  Ahem.

The curried almonds are just basically soaked and drained almonds tossed with curry powder and sea salt, then dehydrated overnight to get their "crunch" back.

The curry crackers are these, but the pulp used was a kale/celery/apple blend...and an extra dose of curry.

The funny looking seaweed wrapped thingies are a yummy snack that I make for the girls.  It was inspired by a recipe from LifeFood Recipe Book: Living on Life Force by the Jubbs.  I wasn't happy with the recipe (sorry!) but after some changes, it's now a favorite!

Crooked Curry-licious
1 handful of sun dried tomatoes (soaked at least 4 hours, then drained)
1 cup hemp seeds
1 cup raw cashews
2 large cucumbers (sliced)
1/4 cup miso (we use this chickpea miso)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup dulse
2 Tbs curry powder
5 Tbs raw honey
Nori sheets to roll it up in

Throw all the ingredients into the food processor and whirl it until smooth.  Then take your nori sheets and divide them into 4 smaller squares.  Plop a tablespoon full of the mixture into the small nori square and roll it up.  Pat your finger in water and use it to seal the edges of the nori.  Place them all on the dehydrator screen and dehydrate them at 115 degrees for at least 24 hours.  I know...a long time, but worth it! The edges get crispy while the center is still sort of moist and chewy.  These little snacks are nutritional powerhouses with all the seaweed and hemp seeds going on.

This recipe makes about 100 of these lil snacks (yes...I said 100!) so feel free to halve the recipe.  My crew eats them all up in about 3 days.  Keep them in an airtight container in the fridge.



  1. What kind of dehydrator do you have?

  2. Why have I not yet tried those little curry snacks? Are you not aware of my obsession with nori? Gimme gimme :)

  3. Carissa - We have a 9 tray Excalibur. I've had it for 4 years now and I love it.

    Ro - Sadly, we ate this whole batch before park day. I'll make more soon. :)

  4. Wow. I just linked here from your comment on the Waldorf craft list serv. Lovely blog!

  5. I'm totally going to try some of these even tho' I'm sure my granddaughter wouldn't touch them - she's extremely picky.
    Love those snack boards - I was thinking of making my granddaughter one of the HKitty head lol. If mamaroots hasn't already offered to cut you new snack board shapes I might be able to. I usually have poplar on hand - would they need to be maple like your bunny ones?
    And what shapes where you thinking of? {I have yet to get an etsy going but will at the new year}

  6. We love love love curry everything, too. I've been making a curry/maple syrup blend for roasted nuts and pumpkin seeds lately. Should use my dehydrator instead though! I am going to check out that curry cracker recipe. Thank you!
