INGREDIENTS
Isopure Aminos 8 Scoops
Peeled and seeded zucchini 4 Cups
Filtered water 3 Cups
   
INSTRUCTIONS

Cut the zucchini into pieces approximately 1" x 1/2" x 1/2". Set aside.

Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Lower to a simmer, and add aminos. Stir to be sure the powder is dissolved. Add zucchini, and let simmer for 30 minutes. Remove zucchini from the amino mix, and reuse the liquid if you have extra zucchini. Drain the zucchini, and let cool.

Dehydrate at 105F for about 6 hours, or until the outer surface is dry and the inside is still juicy. Make sure to flip the pieces halfway through, if necessary, to ensure a dry outer surface. Without a dehydrator, place the pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and use the "keep warm" setting on your oven for just a few hours total. You may want to prop the oven door open a little to achieve a lower temperature. 

Remove from dehydrator or oven, and enjoy!
