Spice Up Your Survival Diet

<< < (2/2)

Note: Miscellaneous ideas from Yahoo Answers or survival sites. Some of the cheapest foods to be found are canned beans. Granted better to cook fresh but this is so people can use what they have, if they do end up in a survival situation with a store of food. A supply of oil, canned butter, dry Parmesan cheese, salad dressings, sauces these would all keep fairly well and would make a lot of foods palatable. Some people will eat canned beans cold, with a little Italian salad dressing, mayo.  I like any kind of bean, hot or cold. - B.T.


1)  Heat a heavy pan (cast iron works wonderfully for this) then add enough oil to lightly cover the
     bottom. Add a the beans to the pan. Mash with your masher or fork, and add salt and pepper (you
     could also add red pepper flakes, cumin or spice of your choice) to taste. Top with salsa

2)  Cook them with salt, pepper, onion salt, garlic salt and some kind of seasoned salt, top cooked
     beans with fresh chopped onions and serve with hot buttered cornbread.

3)  Add a can of corn, some salsa, little cheese on top, [serve hot or cold, a dip. ]

4)  Add chilli sauce

5)  Tomato sauce onions, garlic.

6)  Ham, bacon or (if you don't eat pork vegetarian Baco-Bits.)


1)  Salt, pepper, butter

2)   Good with ketchup too.


from Sueder on Yahoo Answers
1)  Put a little bit of vegetable or olive ol in the bottom of a saucepan. Drain the beans and put them in
     the pan. Put in a cube of beef bouilion (1 cube every 2- small cans). Cover. Turn the heat on medium
     high an leave thm for awhile. Go back every 10 minutes or so to stir them and recover. Once the look
     a little mushy and lose the canned green bea smell, thy are ready. Also, make sure the bottom of the
     saucepan has a bit of broth in it from the bouillion and the oil mixing. If not, add a little more oil and
     re-stir. !

2)  ...add a seasoning to it such as chicken bouillion or seasoning packet from Ramen chicken noodles.


Some ideas - eat them hot with some oil or butter; cold with mayo if you have it. 
I don 't see a recipe but it seems to me stuffing mix would be a good staple to stock and could mix well with canned
heated beans or veges...


Some other commonly stocked canned foods:
Canned tomatoes, canned mushrooms, canned spinach.
The recipe below calls for frozen spinach. In a survival situation, the canned should be OK.
Mom taught me to make a spinach casserole, really good even with the chopped canned
spinach. It had some kind of French spice, some sweet for pie.
(Recipe below is not mine.) A good idea to stock some large packages of stuffing mix, used in
this recipe.
Kids often aren't so fond of dark green vegetables, but they like stuffing so this could work.
This calls for eggs. Powdered eggs should work.... - Barb T.

what you need
1pkg.  (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
1-2/3cups   hot water
1/4cup  (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
2pkg.  (10 oz. each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained and patted dry [Canned from survival larder ]
1cup  KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
1cup  chopped fresh mushrooms
1small  onion, finely chopped
4      eggs

ADD remaining ingredients; mix lightly. Shape into 60 (1-inch) balls. Place in single layer in 2 (15x10x1-inch) pans sprayed with cooking spray.

BAKE 15 to 20 min. or until lightly browned.

kraft kitchens tips MAKE AHEAD Prepare and bake spinach balls as directed; cool completely. Place in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags; freeze up to 3 months. When ready to serve, thaw in refrigerator. Place on baking sheets and bake at 400°F for 10 to 15 min. or until heated through.

Canned tomatoes can be mixed in with stuffing mix and/or rice  and whatever you have
to make a meal...

I'm not sure I mentioned it in this Topic:  It would help make a lot of canned or MRE type meals
a lot more appetizing if you could put some freshly picked herbs in them...

Another food which could make something taste better is homemade yogurt.
Image below, just an example of one type of home yogurt maker which can be operated with
electricity or C batteries.  Euro Cuisine Automatic Yogurt Maker, White. - Yowbarb 

Grow your own sprouts and mushrooms too, of course...
Keep some starter going for bread dough and yogurt culture for the yogurt supply...
