Most nights tenting in the backcountry I cook up the same basic dinner:
Instant mashed potatoes with instant soup (often Knorr brand).
Instant mashed potatoes are available in small grocery shops the world over as is instant soup.
To keep gear as light as possible I cook, eat and drink out of one pot.
I carry only one metal spoon. No knife, fork or spork.
To enhance the fairly bland base meal I add chilli powder or lemon pepper. Then something like peanuts, raisins or tuna.
I never seem to tire of this grub. Cook up is fast using very little fuel. Clean-up quick and easy.
