Here at Infuze, we’re the first to champion the benefits of staying hydrated on the trail. It keeps you healthy, warm, and focused. And with the unique clip-on filter of Infuze, you can enjoy the great taste of water enhancers, without having to clean them out of your Camelbak or water bladder. But we also recognize that to hike your best hike, you need to be well fed on the trail. We’ve thrown together a list of our favorite backcountry meals that are sure to leave you salivating.
While this meal sounds like a video game character, it’s actually a dish from Indonesia. It’s a wonderful medley of noodles and sauce. We make our sauce using peanut butter, brown sugar, sunflower seeds, soy sauce, vinegar, and a few re-hydrated veggies. We boil the noodles, and then heat the peanut butter in a pan, slowly adding the soy sauce, vinegar, and brown sugar to add taste and to thin the peanut butter. We add the sunflower seeds and veggies last and mix them in. Serve the sauce on a hearty bed of noodles for a delicious and filling meal!
Yes, you can bring this front country favorite with you to the backcountry! We typically bring some dry yeast with us, as well as sugar, salt and flour into the wilderness so we can make baked goods after a long day on the trail. With a little patience, you can make a tasty dough using these ingredients and some purified water. We make our sauce using dehydrated veggies, tomato paste powder, and a few spices. We oil our fry pan and stretch out our dough, letting it bake for a few minutes. Next, we’ll flip the crust and add our sauce, a few slices of cheese, and even a slice of summer sausage. Cover that and bake it for a few more minutes. At the last minute, add a dash of water to the pan to create steam so your cheese gets nice and melty. It’s just like your favorite slice back home!
The Ultimate Hot Chocolate
Ok, it’s hard to picture a drink being a meal, but you’ll see why after you read what we put in our Ultimate Hot Chocolate. We pack a baggie of cocoa powder in with us for every backcountry trip. But we don’t stop there, we’ll mix in a spoonful of powdered milk (“cow pow” as we call it) for extra creaminess. Next, we add a dash of cinnamon, with just a drop of vanilla. But we’re still not done, we mix a hearty scoop of peanut butter and just a dash of regular butter. We stir or shake this concoction up until it’s all blended together. We just skip counting the calories on this drink in favor of appreciating its flavor!
