Rehydrate Dried Vegetables With A Coffee Plunger

Rehydrate Dried Vegetables With A Coffee Plunger

Dried vegetables have quite a few advantages, from heightened flavour to longer shelf life. When it’s time to rehydrate them, use a coffee plunger to keep the dried vegetables below the water so they absorb water evenly.

The video above shows how to use this technique to reconstitute dried mushrooms with a coffee plunger, but you can apply it to almost any dried vegetable. Make sure they don’t end up absorbing any coffee flavour by thoroughly washing your plunger beforehand. If you don’t have a plunger, Marx Foods suggests you use a container and then another slightly smaller container to push the dried veggies under the water.
