Trek Chef: Thai Food at Treeline

Thai Food at Treeline

You can bring some great grub with you to tree line. This recipe was inspired by my old Outdoor Leadership professor, Paul Stonehouse, he would make this meal at least once on every trip we’d go on. As all of us students would be working away at the stove to make some epic meal (not always turning out to be epic), he would have his simple, delicious looking and smelling Thai dinner done in minutes. This peanut Thai dish is filling, easy, packed with calories, and CHEAP. Depending on how extravagant you want to get with this dinner, it’s between $1 and $3.


1-2 packets of Thai Kitchen instant rice noodle soup mixes (choose your favorite flavor)

1-4 tbsp of peanut butter, depending on how strong you want the taste of peanut butter (I prefer to use Adam’s crunchy peanut butter)

…And that’s it!


Cook noodles in the packets according to the package instructions. The colder the conditions the more insulation is better for making sure the rice noodles are cooked all the way through. After the noodles are fully cooked - add your desired amount of peanut butter. Stir and enjoy!


For a little more exciting dish, you can sauté up carrots and celery (I suggest cutting these up before leaving home) in a back country fry-pan and add them to the noodles after adding the peanut butter. And if you want to get really fancy, you can fry up some eggs…but that might be best to save for when you’re car camping. Good luck getting eggs up into the backcountry. And at last, a few extra peanuts as ‘garnish’ are tasty as well.
