Seafood Raminara

With these ramen noodles recipes, you can throw away the “flavor” packet that comes in the package. Unless, of course, you enjoy a strong dose of salt, monosodium glutamate, sugar, hydrolyzed this and that, and whatever the heck disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate are.

Wiggle some ramen noodles into your backpacking menu without subjecting your body to a chemistry experiment.

For the Cheese-O-Rama recipe, use cheddar cheese powder and milk powder and your ramen noodles will go down swimmingly.

Use ½ cube of vegetable bouillon in the Bean & Veggie Ramen Noodles recipe. Organic Gourmet™ brand vegetable bouillon is low in sodium and has no MSG or mystery chemicals.

Dehydrated sauerkraut adds a distinctive flavor to the Ramen Noodles & Kraut recipe.

Tomato sauce leather gives Seafood Raminara an Italian flavor.


Cheese-O-Rama

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup ramen noodles
  • ¼ cup dehydrated ham
  • ¼ cup dehydrated peas
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp cheddar cheese powder
  • 1 Tbsp powdered milk
  • pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup water to rehydrate

At Home:

Combine and pack cheese powder and milk powder in a 2 x 3 plastic bag and enclose with other ingredients in a 4 x 6 plastic bag. I use the cheese powder from boxes of Annie’s or Back to Nature brands of macaroni and cheese. For milk powder, I use NIDO brand whole dry milk.

On the Trail:

Combine all ingredients except the cheese and milk powder in pot with one cup water and soak for five minutes.

Light stove, bring to a boil, and continue cooking for another minute.

Remove pot from stove, add cheese and milk power, and stir vigorously.

Cover pot and place in insulating cozy for ten minutes.


Ramen Noodles & Kraut

Serves 1

Ingredients:

At Home:

Use fresh sauerkraut found in the refrigerated section of your grocery store next to the sausage.

Dehydrate at 125° for approximately four to six hours until crispy.

Pack all dry ingredients in a 4 x 6 plastic bag.

On the Trail:

Combine all ingredients with one cup water and soak for five minutes.

Light stove, bring to boil, and continue cooking for one minute.

Transfer pot to insulating cozy for ten minutes.


Bean & Veggie Ramen Noodles

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup ramen noodles
  • ¼ cup dehydrated black beans
  • ¼ cup dehydrated vegetables- try a combination of French cut green beans, tomatoes, corn, and onions
  • ½ cube vegetarian bouillon
  • 1 cup water to rehydrate

At Home:

Pack the ½ bouillon cube in a 2 x 3 plastic bag or wrap in foil and enclose with other dry ingredients in a 4 x 6 plastic bag. I separate the bouillon because it has moisture that could migrate to the dry ingredients.

On the Trail:

Combine all ingredients with one cup water and soak for five minutes.

Light stove, bring to boil, and continue cooking for one minute.

Transfer pot to insulating cozy for ten minutes.


Seafood Raminara

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup ramen noodles (half package)
  • ¼ cup dried shrimp and/or crabmeat
  • ¼ cup dried vegetables. Try a combination of bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce leather, tightly packed
  • 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup water to rehydrate

At Home:

Break noodles into small pieces. Pack parmesan cheese and tomato sauce leather separately in small plastic bags. Enclose in a larger plastic bag with noodles, seafood, and vegetables.

On the Trail:

Combine all ingredients except parmesan cheese with water in pot and soak for five minutes.

Light stove, bring to a boil, and continue cooking with the lid on for one minute.

Remove pot from stove and wait ten minutes. Insulate pot if possible. Stir in parmesan cheese before serving.

The photo below shows the dried shrimp, crab, vegetables, and tomato sauce leather for this ramen noodles recipe.
