This tasty lightweight risotto from Tasmanian maker Strive is perfect for a day-end refuelling session. We zing it up by adding some signature vac-packed fresh grana padano.
Cheese, corn & vegetable risotto: Arborio rice, cheese powder (milk solids, maltodextrin, cheese, HVP, food acid 330), corn, peas (sodium citrate, sodium carbonate), vegetable powder, onion, herbs
Gremolata: Continental parsley, grated lemon peel.
We test the commercially available freeze-dried meals and select only those that pass muster with our delicate little taste buds. That doesn’t mean the ones absent from out list are bad. It does mean that we’re creatures of particular tastes, and that we’re a little on the fussy side. Dehydrating and freeze-drying are tried and true methods of getting wet weight out of adventure food, and it takes a fair bit of effort to get it right. So you get the benefit of the R&D that the commercial makers put in.
