Alchohol Stove recipes - 04/12/13 04:39 PM

I just made a super cat alcohol stove from zen stoves website. Like most alchohol stoves it is great at boiling water but not so much simmering. I do not want to carry a "simmer cat" as well so Where can I find some good recipes that just require bringing water to a boil but not simmering? I made an insulated coozy as well out of old foam that helps keep it hot if that helps. I don't have a dehydrator at the moment either, I know its kind of essential. Thanks

Hard dry cheese
Dry beans, falafel powder is a good option for those with out a dehydrator.

Small things of oil
Nuts seeds

that was a great list. I don't have much imagination when it comes to food so a simple list like this helps me start a menu.

I cook real food on my super cat stove. Just gotta be a bit quicker. I've done some fairly complex stuff for backpacking meals and it worked fine. If you have a thin pan it's a but more difficult I guess.
