Your adventure is calling, you don’t have much time, but you’re still starving hungry? Then take a close look at the following 5 recipes. They’re quick to make and you can easily vary them if you want:



1. Savoury: Couscous

Couscous has one major advantage over classic pasta: It doesn’t have to be boiled; it can just be left to soak in hot water for a few minutes. This saves on essential resources when you’re out and about. Just try it – and enjoy:

Ingredients (for one portion):

  • 300ml water
  • 150g couscous
  • Vegetable stock, 1 cube
  • Tomato puree to taste (optional)
  • Parmesan or feta (optional)
  • 1 large tomato (optional)
  • Parsley (optional)
  • Seasoning: salt, pepper, chili

  2. Add vegetable stock and tomato puree and stir together
  3. Remove pot from stove and stir in couscous, leave to soak for 5-10 minutes
  4. To finish, slice tomato and feta, chop parsley and mix into the couscous
  5. Finally, season to taste

2. Sweet: Couscous

Couscous eignet sich aber nicht nur zur Zubereitung von herzhaften Gerichten. Mit Milch und Obst ist auch schnell eine süße Variante zubereitet:

Couscous is not just suitable for use in savoury dishes. You can also add milk and fruit to create a delicious sweet version in minutes:

Ingredients (for one portion):

  • 300 ml milk (alternatively: water and powdered milk)
  • 150 g couscous
  • Fruit: 1 apple, 1 banana, other seasonal fruit
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp raisins

3. Savoury: Mie Goreng

Preparing Mie Goreng is another way of saving fuel when you’re cooking – the noodles only need to stand for a few minutes in hot water instead of boiling away for ages. You can use the following simple basic recipe wherever you are, or you can adapt it according to the season and your own taste:

Ingredients (for one portion):

  • 400ml water
  • 1 pack mie goreng noodles
  • Powdered cream soup, e.g. mushroom, tomato and mozzarella, broccoli
  • 1 spring onion
  • A handful of fresh vegetables, e.g. mushrooms, tomato, broccoli (optional)
  • Seasoning: salt, pepper

  4. Finally, season to taste

4. Savoury: mashed potatoes

Apart from couscous and Mie Goreng, mashed potatoes also make an ideal fast meal when you’re out. The powder only needs to be soaked, not boiled and it thus provides you with energy and saves energy on cooking at the same time. You can also pep up the flavour by adding your favourite fresh vegetables.

Ingredients (for one portion):

  • 500ml water
  • 1 pack of instant mashed potatoes
  • 1 spring onion, dried tomatoes, rocket

5. Sweet: porridge with fruits

Classic instant porridge is ideal for providing plenty of carbs in the morning. But it’s also easy to prepare at lunchtime, if you prefer something sweeter. Just pour water on it and add your favourite fruit to pep it up:

Ingredients (for one portion):

  • 250ml water
  • Approx. 10 tbsp instant porridge, depending on the thickness required
  • Seasonal fruit, such as 1 banana, 1 apple
