Q. When adding carbs to the meal do you add right to the package or do you cook the carb option separately?
Answer: I have added carbs both ways, you can add right
to the bag any instant rehydrate carb like instant mashed potatoes, minute rice,
Tilda quick basmati rice, or fine rice vermicelli. The trick with this method is to add a bit more water and rehydrate for the amount of time indicated by
the carb option you added.
I have also used the method of cooking my carbs separately, I normally use this method for Ramen style noodles where I boil the noodles aldente then add noodles and water to the package to both rehydrate my
meal and finish the cook on the noodles.
I would like to add one more thing, when you add
your carb option to these meals you are going to have enough food for 2 meals
or to feed 2 people. These dinners are very filling on their own.
