In this recipe I use freeze-dried for the ingredients to get a quick meal made. We use Thrive Life for our freeze-dried. The recipe is gluten-free, grain-free and the carbs are only from vegetables.
I’ve also added a mason jar method for taking meals on-the-go with you, a green alternative to using plastic bags to store ingredients in.
In a snack or sandwich or quart size bag or 8 ounce mason jar:
- ¼ cup freeze-dried peas
- 3 Tbsp freeze-dried chicken
- 2 tsp dried diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp dried diced onion
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp granulated garlic
- 3 Tbsp shelf stable Parmesan cheese
Pack all ingredients in a quart freezer bag.
Place bag in an FBC Cozy, add in 1/3 cup boiled water. Stir, seal and let sit for 15 minutes. Stir before eating.
Insulated Mug Method:
Pack all ingredients in bag or mason jar.
Add dry ingredients into an insulated mug, add 1/3 cup boiled water, stir well and cover tightly.
Let sit for 15 minutes. Stir before eating.
Pack the meal into an 8 ounce mason jar. Add 1/3 cup boiled water to it, stir, cover, and let sit 15 minutes. Stir before eating.
For those wanting a more filling meal, this can be served tossed with hot pasta or over rice, or served in a tortilla wrapped up.
The shelf stable Parmesan cheese is the “green lid”. In other words, Kraft or similar. We find an organic version at Costco that doesn’t have fillers added.
