Shiitake Sesame Ramen by MONTyBOCA

Ramen. We all know it. We all love it. And there’s a reason why it’s in almost all of our packs come trip time. But let’s liven it up a little bit. Packing along a few fresh ingredients or items to sprinkle on top go a long way for an elevated bowl. Snap peas, red pepper, broccoli/cauliflower, green onions are all readily available, easy packing and last for multiple days on the trail. Try sprinkling on some sesame seeds, hot sauce or nuts for extra flavor and crunch.

Hikers note: I’ve made a version of this deep in the Olympic National Park on day 3 of a solo hike. It really hit the spot while listening to the Lillian River rush by.
