Made a curried couscous that is quit tasty and easy. I substituted pearl couscous for the instant stuff and ignored any perishables. Easy to find freeze dried veggies to add if need be.

I did a Grand Canyon kayak self-support trip this winter. Space savings was important and no way to pack a cooler.

We took almost entirely Backpackers Pantry dehydrated breakfast and dinners and were blown away at how good they were.

We use thrive freeze dried food. They have recipes on their web site, I find what we want, put in the servings needed and order the amount you need. I put together the meals in seal a meal bags. Add water, boil, and enjoy.

I definitely second the Backpackers Pantry. They are awesome and the best no-cooler food that I have had. They have good options for all meals, including deserts!

If you google for backpackinglight and sauces, you'll find a post where somebody put together a bunch of shelf stable sauces that you can use to feed large groups (with your grain of choice). They're pretty tasty, too.
