Korean and/or Japanese Backpacking Foods

scarmoza | Jun 11, 2008 03:48 PM

I'm going backpacking this weekend and thought it might be nice to buy some foods from Kuk-Je (Korean Market) and prepare them for dinner. I'm looking for instant and lightweight foods that travel well in a backpack and can be prepared on a campstove using little water, etc.

I thought maybe a miso based noodle soup with seaweed, dried mushrooms, and hard-boiled eggs...but I don't know. What's the best instant miso to buy? And the best dried mushrooms for this?

I saw so many possibilities in the market: dried fish, dried mushrooms, seaweed, dried herbs, even a sort of soup kit with all the herbs and rice packaged together - but I'm still not sure what would be best.

So any of you out there that know your Korean and Japanese products (and maybe have some backpacking experience), your advise is greatly appreciated - especially with meals and snacks.
