Dried vegetables are a convenient way to add color and flavor to a variety of foods. Easily rehydrated in warm water, these products are nice to have around when you need a veggie but not the hassle of storing and preparing the fresh version. Tomato halves and sprinkles are a wonderful addition to salads, soups and stews and for sandwich fillings. Tomato powder is used as a natural food coloring, especially for homemade pasta. Also makes a nice garnish for light colored sauces.
