Notes
This is an adapted recipe from our first book:[br]http://www.trailcooking.com/store/freezer-bag-cooking-trail-food-made-si…[br]For the soy sauce and vinegar use packets from www.minimus.biz or powders from www.packitgourmet.com[br]Make this recipe gluten free by substituting in a package of rice noodle ramen (look in the Asian section of most grocery stores).[br][br]From Fat Head Carl:[br]used this as a basis for a modified version, added chicken[br]This is an excellent recipe. It’s the sesame oil that makes it awesome. [br][br]I added a can of chicken, a tsb of tamari, along with crushed peanuts, and since it was so cold out, I vacu-sealed “thai basil paste” and didn’t have to worry about spoilage (ginger, thai basil, lime, and if my tongue served me right, hot pepper). I got a little vacu-crazy, and added sesame seeds to it as well. It was excellent, and very filling.[br][br]Make this recipe, you wont be disappointed.
