If you’re spending the night in the middle of nowhere, you probably won’t want to carry a lot of supplies, so rustling up some freeze-dried food is really convenient. Instant dishes that you just pour water on to rehydrate used to be very popular. However, home-made versions not only taste a whole lot better, they also offer far more variety and are pretty cool. This mini-gourmet meal is definitely soul-food from a bag!
