So, a month ago, I saw bags of heirloom carrots in the grocery store...you know, the ones that come in colours other than the normal orange? I thought it would be awesome to dehydrate them and add them to the kid's ramen noodles along with dried corn, celery etc. This way at least there's some vegetables in the meal, plus, I love the purple carrots.
In theory, a cool idea...but when you rehydrate them, some of the colour comes out of the purple pieces and turns everything you cook with them a gross blue-grey colour. It doesn't change the taste or anything, but ramen ends up looking like zombie brains or something. Ugh. Lesson learned.
