It's Tuesday, so you know it is time for Tater Tuesday! Todays recipe will fill you up nicely and give you a good shot of potassium to ward off leg cramps as you fall asleep.

This recipe features Simply Organic's Mushroom Sauce mix and Fungus Among Us's organic dried Crimini mushrooms. The recipe is easy to make, and is suitable for many diets (vegetarian, reasonable sodium levels).

Sounds great, just need to convert the US ingredients to Danish ingredients and I will have a meal for a long trip I am planning.

By the way where did you get the spoon? It seems Orikaso does not sell them.


Thanks Sarah

Roger, They are actually made by Fozzils, which uses a similar type of material. When they came out on the market I fell in love with them :-) (To the point that I sell them on my website as well)
Fozzils got a nice mention in Decembers issue of Backpacker Magazine, along with my business and also Trail Designs as well!

On the mushroom sauce, you can sub it with mushroom gravy, any brand. I just prefer Simply Organic due to it not having MSG!
