Good To-Go to go is a gourmet backpacking and camping meal company that makes really tasty dehydrated foods. They’ve been in business a few years and have been slowly adding meals to their menu, including two new ethnic meals, a spicy Korean dish called Bibimbap and a smokey Mexican Quinoa Bowl that features a mole poblano sauce.
- Good To-Go’s Complete Dinner Menu:
All of Good To-Go’s dinners require boiling water to rehydrate, but the required soak tim is 20 minutes, which seems like an awfully long time to wait when you’re ravenously hungry after a full day of hiking. But the ends justify the means, because their dinners taste so delicious that you’re going to want seconds and thirds. Pro-tip: extend the meals with instant rice, soaked separately, to sop up the extra sauce and make the meals go farther.
Try saying that fast. Bibimbap is a spicy Korean dish made with rice, carrots, carrots and sesame that’s probably my favorite Good To-Go meal so far. It has a kick, but it’s not that intense. A Korean staple, the key ingredient of bibimbap is gochujang, a deep red, spicy and immensely flavorful sauce made from Korean chilis and fermented miso. You’ll want a double portion of this one. Tastes like it’s freshly made when rehydrated. The Bibimbap is vegan and gluten-free.
Mexican Quinoa Bowl
Good To-Go’s Mexican Quinoa Bowl combines butternut squash, black beans, and quinoa with a model poblano sauce made with ancho chiles, cinnamon, coriander and cumin, finished with organic cacao powder. It’s pretty good, but not as memorable as the Bibimbap. The Mexican Quinoa Bowl is vegan.
Two new meals from Good To-Go. Give your taste buds a treat on the trail and a change from the norm.
