MEAL PREP :

  • Wash, dry, clean off ends and seeds then slice your zucchini, mushrooms and peppers into 1/8″ pieces.
  • If you are bringing fresh, wrap veggies in some paper towel and put into a moisture proof bag like this reusable silicon one by Stasher.
  • If you are dehydrating, place your slices into the dehydrator and follow the recommended time and temperature settings for your device.
  • Once your veggies are dehydrated, place two servings into a moisture proof container.
  • Wash, dry, and trim off ends of two green onions / scallions. Wrap in paper towel and secure with a rubber band.
  • Portion out 1 tsp of Tajin Spice( We got ours in CDMX, but you can pick some up from Unimarket in YYC), and 1 tbsp of Black Sesame seeds into a couple of BPA Free screw-top plastic containers.
  • Grab 2 packages of Sapporo Ichiban Miso Ramen.
  • Portion out 6 cups of water into a bottle or bladder.
  • Set aside 2 bowls with lids.
  • Set aside 1 knife, I love this knife byOpineland 2 sporks(or forks. I use this cutlery set by GSI ).
  • Set aside Jetboil or Pocket Rocket Stove with pot.
  • Set aside a lighter, and fuel canister that is compatible with your stove of choice.
  • Place all the above ingredients and supplies into a stuff sack and place in your backpack!

HOW TO COOK IT ALL

  • Pour about a cup of water into your Jetboil/Pot and add in one serving of veggies (half), bring to a boil and let simmer on low (or off heat) for about 10 minutes, to rehydrate the veggies.
  • While this is happening, pour your ramen spice packet, 1 tsp of Tajin, and 1/2 Tbsp of black sesame seeds into the bowl and mix with a bit of water. Place your noodles right on top.
  • Fill your Jetboil/Pot to 2 cups of water, bring back to a boil.
  • Carefully pour the boiling water over the noodles into the bowl, cover, and let stand for 3-5 minutes.
  • Repeat process for second serving, using the other bowl 😉
  • Top with sliced scallions, give it a stir and dig in!
