Camping Meal On-The-Go

Cooking can be a handful in the outdoors. This instructable presents something similar to an MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) that you have to cook. Concealed in a plastic bag, this meal for one is light, portable, and versatile for any camping activity. Ultimately, the chosen foods can last for years at a time so spoiling food is out of the question.

Step 1: Materials

1. A sandwich zip-lock bag
2. Dehydrated white rice
3. Various fast-cooking dehydrated beans or legumes of your choice (example: Lentils)
4. Various food seasonings of your choice

5. Bouillon broth cube


Feel free to add any non-perishable food items such as dehydrated foods.

Step 3: Preparation

To prepare this meal, open the bag, boil the ingredients in water for a certain amount of time (different people may disagree on the matter of cooking time), and it turns out to be a quick, easy meal. You may also change the seasonings every time it's prepared to add variety. A larger bag may be used for a larger group of people.

Overall, I think that this homemade M (Not necessarily) RE is a great addition to camping and other outdoor activities. It saves the hassle of having to clean dishes or any other dreaded chore, and It turns out to be a very advantageous outdoor project.

Brilliant idea! I got experimental with my last camping trip - I made a couple of different dishes (keeping it meat free for the lack of refrigeration!) It was so handy not having a million pots and dishes and stuff to clean up!!

Thanks. I've had successful camping trips using these. What I really like to do is make multicultural 'dishes' using different seasonings and ingredients. A new style of food each day

Actually they are lentils which happen to be a legume, similar to a bean. Most beans take a long time to cook and more vigorous work
