Dried vegetables are a great way to make sure you never run out of your favourite greens (or deep purples, glowing oranges, vibrant yellows, smoky greys and musky browns). They help you meet your nutritional needs and supply you with lots of extra cooking options on any given day. Browse all the best 'everyday' veg: broccoli, kale, leek, onion, olives, peppers, zucchini/courgettes, dried tomatoes… and some harder-to-find gems too.
No lengthy soaking required
Don’t be put off by the need to soak these dried vegetables. Nearly all of this food will rehydrate itself in no time at all. Mushrooms, for example, generally only require 10 minutes of soaking. Even better than this: practically all of them can be thrown into hearty stews, sauces, curries and pies straight away, just as they are. Delicious, veg filled cooking at any time? Now there's a mouth-watering prospect.
A great money-saver
Stocking up on dried vegetables is really economical. They have a superb shelf-life, and storing them dry means you can keep more vegetable goodness in the same kitchen area. With dried vegetables (and dried fruits) you’ll never be short of your ‘five a day’ again!
Great nutrition whenever you need it
A more obvious benefit of using dried veg is its sheer nutritional power. It’s widely recommended that a highly varied diet, with as many different colours and food groups as possible, is the best way to promote all-round health and happiness. With a huge range of nutrients and healthy properties between these products, just buying a few will guarantee you can always get a good mix.
