Here is one recipe I used in Baja this past October:
- One 147 gm packet of Lipton Onion and Mushroom Fried Rice
- One 8-oz. can of mixed peas and carrots
- One 5-oz. can of chunk tuna in water
Prepare the rice in a 2-quart sauce pan with 2 cups water as directed. Just before rice is finished, stir in the tuna and gently add the peas and carrots. Reheat contents of the pot. Let sit for 3 minutes and serve. That should satisfy two hearty eaters.
To stretch that to a third joining your campfire, simply heat a can of some of the gourmet canned beans that are also on the supermarket shelves. One I tried and like was S&W Regional Recipe San Antonio Beans. In contrast to some of the traditional canned beans, these new ones are low in saturated fat and have a provocative taste.
