Quick as a flash - Hiking part 3

There are days when you feel like cooking and then there are days when you just feel like sleeping. On sleeping days I like to make food that has lots of taste but does not take more than a few minutes to cook.

One of my best finds this year is Nomu Sitr, it is undeniably the most versatile product I have found. It adds flavour and body to any tomato based dish. I always buy the Tomato and Chili, because I love the extra tang. This recipe has evolved as part of my quest to find quick light hiking food and I can't think of anything lighter or quicker.

Flash Cook Tomato Pasta

1 Onion sliced
20-30ml Nomu Stir
10ml Mixed Herbs
Cured sausage sliced
Oil for frying
(Cream for non-hikers)

Cook the pasta according to the instruction on the packet.
Fry the onion and the sausage until soft.
Add the Nomu Stir and enough water to make a sauce.
Cook for 5 minutes, you can add a little of the pasta water.
If you are not hiking and want extra comfort add a good glug of cream.
Serve with cooked pasta.
It really is that simple - and the taste is incredible.

This looks like comfort food to me ;)

That sure beats the nasty, freeze-dried food I had camping when I was a kid!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
