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

Congrats on the stove build! For easy one pot meals right out of the store I have a few go to favourites.

As a base(carbs)
Cous Cous instant filling cheap
Instant mash potatoes
Instant stuffing
Quick cooking rice
Polenta

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

Fats
Small things of oil
Nuts seeds
Peanut butter

For taste
Spices in little zips with salt pepper
Dried fruits
Dry soup mixes

Hope this helps
Happy trails
Matt

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.
Thanks....

Lots of recipes here needing only boiling water; many based on grocery store ingredients: Trail Cooking

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.
