BUT the basic rules of polite and civil conduct which everyone agreed to when signing up for the HUBB, will still apply, though moderation will be a LITTLE looser than elsewhere on the HUBB.

yeah true, i was joking somewhat, but on my 6 month europe trip i never really cooked, mostly because i was just rough camping and such.
so cold food was the way forward.
bread meat and cheese was a common breakfast that would do for a few days. another good one was to buy a 500g tub of natural yogurt and some cereal. pour some of the cereal into the yogurt and jobs a good un, usually keeps at least 2 mornings.
and lots of fruit.
the tragedy of it is i had a trangia stove with me, i just never had the location or patients to use it. or clean it.

I've spent quite a few months on the bread, salami, cheese and diet..

Take it from me, it does nothing for your figure

And it doesn't help your wallet either. Cheese and cured meat is expensive next to rice and vegetables.

My wife(chinese), cooks egg noodles (dried,packaged )with veggies -picked up during stops and stir fries them in a small pot,can be done with just water or a Pho paste for a soup n veggies, for us meat lovers it is canned chicken or whatever left over from the noon meal. of course the spices and sauces are required to be taken n replenished as is available locally and this is fine as we like a variation on our noodles and chicken.

200g of black beans (dried - any otehr bean can do)
1 onion
garlic (to taste)
3 bay leaves
dried/salted meat/smoked bacon
sausages/meat/chicken
1 orange
seasoning
dried herbs is nice

Rinse the black beans and remove any stone you may find.

Let the dried black beans in water overnight in your cooking pot. Make sure it is covered of water as the beans will absorb the water. 12 h later KEEP the black water in which the beans have been left overnight. It is not dirty, just the beans releasing colour.
12 h before if you have any salted meat, leave it in water also for 12 h in a plastic container or sandwitch bag, but discard the water in the end.

Bring the beans in its water to the boil. Add the salted meat, bacon, sausages and/or any other meat you may have, + onions and garlic. Add 2 or 3 bay leaves, dried herbs if you have them and the orange cut in 2.
Let it boil until the meat and beans are cooked.
The 2 half oranges should turn black as it absorbs the fat from the meat. Discard them when the flesh of these oranges turns blackish.

Ideally the garlic and onion should be added after being fried, but in one pot just put it raw.


You can make it vegetarian by not using meat and replacing with local vegetables.
Enjoy!
Tried this last night. It was delicious. Thanks

Looks like Matt went on to bigger things, but I watched all his cooking videos today.

Great stuff!

I'm hoping to do more cooking off the bike in the future.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
