Preperation: 1. Open pouch at tear notch. Unfold bottom. Remove Oxygen Absorber. 2. Add hot water up to line 6 (=0.280 litre). 3. Stir well. 4. Close zipper. Allow to stand for 8 minutes. 5. Stir again. 6. Eat out of the pouch.
Adventure Foods's Veggie Couscous is part of an interesting range of meals from this supplier. Freeze dried foods are not as tasty as freshly prepared stuff so structure your expectations! Having said that Adventure Food seem to be one of the best - from reviews and personal experience - and after a day on the hill the satisfaction bar is lowered somewhat.
On a long trip I'd take these meals for perhaps one third to half of my meal requirements providing the rest from non-freeze dried products - especially local and fresh stuff. Combining in this way balances the need for 'real' food with the need for keeping your pack weight down.
