FAQS

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!

Classic Risotto with Sautéed Mushrooms and Basil Pesto

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.

  • Traditional arborio rice
  • Cremini mushrooms

Important WARNING for California Residents

Cremini Mushroom

Cremini Mushroom

Cremini mushrooms (aka young portobello mushrooms) are rich with micronutrients such as antioxidants and potassium, and are high in fiber, too. Not only do these little fungi add a ton of flavor but they are a great way to promote everyday health.
Arborio Rice

Arborio Rice

Arborio is an Italian short-grain rice, best-known for its use in risotto. Its high starch content and chewy texture are responsible for the creaminess that risotto fans adore.
Basil

Basil

Basil's sweet and savory notes perfectly compliment the deep, earthy flavors from the mushrooms.

    One of my favorite on the trail meals

    First off, its super tasty.

    Second, it has great nutritional value stacked up against similar products.

    Third, it has no meat, which never satisfactorily reconstitutes very well.

    Fourth, its better than Peak Refuel or Backpacker Pantry similar products.

    Fifth, it comes in single- or double-serving. This is great for planning meals. With a group of people and reduces waste.

    Probably a "1 Tums" meal

    Tasty, filling. I'll tell you in the morning if the spice level is compatible with an older stomach. This was tried in the kitchen at home, with the heater on which is not quite the same as being outside, in the dark, with temps hovering just above freezing after 10 - 12 miles on the trail.
