5 stars!

Finally got to try the Unstuffed Pepper meal with bison while out hiking the Trans Catalina Trail! Right away, I liked that the packaging was lighter and more compact than similar products. I also really liked that the package had two tear off sections - easy to turn the package into a bowl so you can eat without losing your spork haha! When I opened the package I was amazed to see big chunks of recognizable food! It also used less water than a lot of similar meals (only 10 ounces). After a short wait, I had a delicious, hot meal that I would have been happy to have at home. Five stars!

Hey Shannon, so happy to see that you enjoyed the meal! Thanks for sharing :)
Could Eat This Everyday

I actually had this for lunch at work. It was so delicious and easy to make, I used a kettle we have to heat the water and let it boil according to the package instructions. Although, I sort of eyeballed the water/food worked out fine. I let it sit a little longer than instructed and stirred a few times to really distribute everything, but regardless it was a SUPER EASY and DELICIOUS midday meal. Filling, flavorful, healthy.

I ordered 2 more and some others. Hope there are more recipes soon.

Fresh Delicious Flavor

When you open the bag you see huge chunks of veggies and meat. Despite the large large chunks the meal rehydrated in the time instructed on the package, which is a lot less than other brands of dehydrated meals. The flavor is unlike any dehydrated meal I have ever had, very delicious!

Comfort Food While in the Wilderness

I finally got to try the one of Bushka’s Kitchen’s freeze-dried meals on my last backpacking trip. I tried the “Unstuffed Peppers” and absolutely loved this meal. The flavors were delicious, it was easy to prepare, and felt like I was eating comfort food while out in the wilderness. The unstuffed peppers have become my favorite free dried meal of all time so far. I can’t wait to try the rest of their meals on my next backpacking trip coming up.

Pleasant, Peppery Heat

Bringing busy people locally-crafted, healthy food is a worthwhile but lofty goal. But the unstuffed Italian pepper meal lives up to the challenge. It packs a pleasant, peppery heat, along with a delicious medley of herbs. Even the ground beef tastes well seasoned and of high quality, combining a home-cooked, from-scratch taste with a just-add-water level of ease.
