I’ve found a formula that works, and it’s producing great lunches/light dinners that are gluten-free and easy to prep. If you have a well stocked hiker’s pantry, these meals are a snap to pull it together, For the freeze-dried beef and peas I used Thrive Life products.
Italian Beef with Peas and Tomatoes
In a quart freezer bag pack:
- ¼ cup freeze-dried peas
- 3 Tbsp freeze-dried hamburger
- 3 Tbsp shelf stable Parmesan cheese (green can kind)
- 2 tsp diced dried tomatoes
- 1 tsp diced dried onion
- ¼ tsp each: Basil, Sage, Thyme (freeze-dried is best)
Place freezer bag in a FBC Cozy. Add in 1/3 cup boiled water, seal tightly and let sit for 15 minutes.
Insulated Mug Method:
Add dry ingredients to an insulated mug, add in 1/3 cup boiled water. Stir well, cover and let sit for 15 minutes.
