Cooking all of our Strive Food meals are easy. Simply add water and cook. We do recommend you use a pot larger than 500ml. Most of our double serves will fit snugly into a 1L pot.
Cooking times are stove and fuel dependent.
Cooking Method 1
Cook the meal for the specified period of time on the packet stirring occasionally. Your meal will then be ready to eat.
Cooking Method 2
To preserve fuel an alternate method has been recommended by one of our long term Strive clients.
In a pot mix the meal with recommended amount of water on product label and bring to the boil. Once boiled turn off the gas, cover and let the meal sit for the time specified on the pack. Bring back to the boil (just to re-heat) and the meal should be ready to eat!
Cooking Method 3 — Microwave!
We don't always eat Strive meals in the outdoors. They are great additions to the pantry as well.
Place contents into a bowl with the required amount of water. Typically, microwaving will take a couple of minutes longer that the stove method. Make sure you stir at least once during the cooking process.
Let your meal rest for 1–2 minutes to allow any sauce to thicken. This will also let the food cool down enough to eat, although it will still be hot.
