Here are some recipes from the workshop.

Berry Cobbler

At home combine 1/3 cup dried berries, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 pinch nutmeg, put in zip lock bag. Second zip lock gets 1/3 cup bisquick (or ½ your favorite biscuit recipe)

On the trail add 3 table spoons water to bag of bisquick and knead in the bag. Boil 1 cup of water and add fruit mix. Cut corner of biscuit mix bag and squeeze out spoonful size dollops onto liquid; push them down so they are immersed. Cover the pot and simmer for 5-7 minutes, until the dumplings are cooked.

Spider Legs & Brains

8 ounces Udon noodles (original recipe calls for Soba)

½ cup Arame (a type of seaweed)

2-3 tablespoons olive oil (original recipe calls for sesame oil)

Carrot (original recipe calls for ½ carrot)

One onion

3 tablespoons peanut butter (original recipe calls for almond or cashew butter)

2 tablespoons Miso paste

On the trail

Rinse seaweed and soak for several minutes to rehydrate

Prepare the noodles (al dente in 8 minutes) drain the noodles, save the water, and sprinkle them with some oil (to stop them from sticking)

Prepare the veggies, cut the carrots into match sticks and dice the onion. Add oil to pan and cook the veggies first, and then add the Arame. Add a little soaking water, cover, and let steam for several minutes.

Uncover and add the noodles, cover and cook for a few minutes before adding the secret sauce.

Secret sauce is 1/3 to ½ cup hot water from noodles, peanut butter, and Miso paste

Thanks for the recipes! Both tasted really good at the camping workshop. You guys might just get me cooking - instead of boiling water and adding it to the freeze dried stuff while camping.

A bag of precooked rice, a can of stir fry veggies and a bag of chicken (box o' tofu for us vegetarians) is a real easy way to make the switch from a boil in a bag meal.

I know most people are not going to make pizza in an outback oven, but it was fun to show what's possible. The pizza was pretty good too.
