    I would like to make this at home and dehydrate the whole meal, would you recommend this?

      Yep! It’s also a good idea to save your leftovers. But if you want to prolong shelve life, try to avoid adding oil or any other fat during the cooking.Dry your food properly and than pack to vacuum-sealed or zip-lock bags.

    Would it be possible to replace ground beef with something else? If so, do you have any suggestions? Thank you

      Yes! If youare vegetarian, you can replace beef with TVP (texturized vegetable protein)

    Question: in the recipe, is the 1/3 cup dehydrated cooked barley measured before dehydrating or after?

    • Tanya Krezevska on July 7, 2018 at 4:25 pm

      By dehydrated cooked barley I meant already dried grains.
