Our mango sticky rice is a sweet, black sesame seed-topped Thai delight that’s vegan, soy free, and full of all the delicious mango and coconut flavors you’d expect from this classic that doubles as breakfast and dessert. All you need is 1 - 1.5 cups of boiling water and 15-20 minutes of patience.

Indian Rice Pudding (2 Servings)
Spice up your next backpacking breakfast with our traditional Indian rice pudding. This low sodium, soy free delight is full of almonds and raisins, plus an exotic spice blend of cardamom, orange peel, and honey. Prepare it by adding 1-1.5 cups of boiling water to the pouch. Stir well, let it sit for 15-20 minutes, give it one final stir, and serve. You can also create a make-ahead cold breakfast with 2 cups of water and several hours of hydration time. And here’s another little secret: this dish is also perfect for dessert.

Chana Masala (2 Servings)
You’ll get two servings from this pouch, but we doubt you’ll want to share. Our spin on this classic Indian curry dish from the Punjab region features delectable chickpeas in a blend of chilies and rice. It’s also high in protein and calories, making it the perfect way to refuel after a long day spent outside. You’ll hardly believe a pot, water, heat to get that water boiling, and 15-20 minutes of rehydration time is all that lies between you and a lightweight, nutritionally balanced meal.

Pad Thai (2 Servings)
Bring the flavors of your favorite Thai restaurant out into the wilderness with our vegan and gluten free pad thai dish. Rice noodles and veggies are blended together with a spicy, sweet, and addicting garlic sauce. We’ve even included roasted peanuts for added texture and flavor — it’s all about the details. The best part? All that stands between you and your Pad Thai is some boiling water and a bit of time.

Cuban Coconut Black Beans & Rice (2 Servings)
Bring a bit of the tropics along on your next outdoor adventure. This fragrant Caribbean classic puts a delicious Cuban twist on a sweet and savory blend of coconut milk, black beans, and bananas. It’s also high in protein, vegan, and gluten free. Like our other nutritious dehydrated meals, this entree is a snap to make. Boiling water, some stirring, and hydration time is all it takes.

Katmandu Curry (2 Servings)
We can’t transport you to the Himalayas, but the adventurous spirit of those iconic peaks certainly inspired this dish. Our chef created this curry to warm souls and nourish active bodies, combining lentils, brown rice, potatoes, peas, and carrots to create one seriously delicious dish that’s both vegan and gluten free. Preparing it couldn’t be easier, either. Just add boiling water to the pouch, stir well, seal, and let sit for 15-20 minutes. After one last stir it’s time to chow down.

Our chef's sweet and satisfying twist on this classic French treat is sure to have you looking forward to dessert after setting up camp. If you’re wondering whether this treat comes complete with a burnt sugar topping, never fear — you’ll get the full creme brulee experience, no blow torch required. You won’t even need hot water for this one, because this sweet treat can be made with cold water.
