Today’s video is for a very easy to make trail soup that will fill you up – great for winter trips! For the lower sodium beef concentrate called for I find mine at Trader Joe’s though Packit Gourmet carries a full sodium version as well.
In a snack bag:
1/2 cup whole wheat couscous
In a sandwich bag:
2 Tbsp diced dried tomato
1 Tbsp diced dried shallots
1 Tbsp diced dried spinach
1 Tbsp ‘beef’ TVP or cooked and dehydrated hamburger
1/4 tsp diced dried garlic
Pinch of Thyme
2 packets lower sodium beef concentrate or 2 tsp low sodium beef bouillon
Parmesan cheese to taste
Cover the veggies with just enough cool water to cover. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Add 2 cups water to your pot and start heating up. Add in the veggie bag along with any remaining water. Bring to a boil, add in the couscous, stirring well. Simmer for a minute over a low flame. Turn off stove and let sit for 5 minutes.
Serve with Parmesan cheese if desired.
Serves 2 small appetites to 1 large appetite.
