At last week’s Monday Musings, I mentioned I was catching up on product reviews. Therefore, in lieu of the scheduled posts, this week is Review Week!
I had the opportunity to test out the new Mountain House Fire Roasted Vegetables.
Long time readers know we’ve tested a few Mountain House entrees, and brought them on camping and backpacking trips.
I was a little iffy about how fire roasted vegetables would turn out, as this is one of my favorite foods and some restaurants don’t even cook them properly. But I gave it shot so here’s the result.
Here is what the vegetables look as you open the packet. It contains freeze dried fire roasted bell peppers, onions with corn and black beans.
As usual, I followed the instructions to take out the oxygen absorber then just add 1.5 cups boiling water.
I checked it after the 8 minutes were up and the vegetables were ready the the black beans were still a bit tough. So I left it for another 7 minutes for a total of 15. By now the black beans were perfect.
I think it’s actually better than some of the frozen fire roasted vegetable blends I’ve tried from the supermarket. They would be great for camping, backpacking and long term food storage. I highly recommend Mountain House Fire Roasted Vegetables.
