Sushi Rice Bowl, a No-cook Backpacking Meal
June 27, 2021

With summer temperatures on the rise, no-cook backpacking meals make a lot of sense, especially for lunches. It was hot yesterday above treeline on Monte Tamaro near the Swiss-Italian border. We brought along a sushi rice bowl in our thermos food jar, which we rehydrated with cold water on the way up the mountain.

I’ve covered macaroni, couscous, and quinoa salads in past newsletters; this month features a sushi rice salad.

The recipe includes how to make sushi rice with its unique sour, sweet, and salty taste, as well as the instructions for drying the rice, cucumbers, and surimi. What you get is something like a California sushi roll in a bowl without the avocado. I left out avocado because it turns brown when dehydrated and doesn’t rehydrate well.

You’ll find the Sushi Rice Bowl recipe on a new page on the website:

Next month, I’m going to get back to sending out newsletters at the beginning of the month, rather than at the end. Look for the July newsletter on Friday.

It will feature a Peach Salsa Rice Salad, which has already received the two thumbs up from Dominique.
