What if my Risotto isn't rehydrated?
Give it a little bit longer. Rehydration isn't an exact science, and factors such as altitude and ambient temperature can have an affect. Be sure to stir this meal well, as the thicker consistency of this dish requires a few extra stirs to incorporate all of the ingredients.
Are there a lot of mushrooms?
Short answer: yes. We load it with sautéed cremini mushrooms and cook the arborio rice in a mushroom stock. If you're not a fan of mushrooms, you may want to choose a different meal!

Our risotto was created the old-school way. Caramelize onions in olive oil, add the risotto and toast slightly, deglaze with white wine, slowly add stock. Boom. Finally, the basil pesto and sautéed mushrooms are added.

This is my favorite of all the Good To Go meals (and in fact all dehydrated meals in general)! Be sure to bring a packet of salt to add in as on its own it doesn’t have a ton of flavor but with the addition of salt, it improves significantly. If you have Parmesan cheese, even better! This one, the pasta marinara, and the Cuban rice bowl are my go-to meals to bring backpacking!
My daughter and I split this meal recently and both of us found it offered a delicious taste, and it provided great calories for the rest of our hike. I recommend using your spoon to mix up all of the gradients thoroughly before adding the hot water and then once the meal is completely rehydrated, mixing it up one more time before eating. Also, I give it slightly less water than recommended and let it rehydrate for 10 minutes longer in your meal coozy for perfection.
Excellent, but it needs more Parmesan cheese and perhaps onion and white wine to add flavor.
Delicious. Great flavors.
