With our Wonderland Trail start just five days away, it's time to start thinking about food. Breakfasts and dinner are always easy – but I always struggle for that perfect lunch. Salami, aged cheese and crackers is my staple – but I want something different some days.
So here we go with some more kitchen experiments
First lets meet the band
The rock star of this recipe is the good old dried banana.
This rather revolting slug-looking creature can be found in the bulk food section of Whole Foods. Despite its rotten appearance, they are exceptionally tasty little chaps.
Backing vocals are provided by the delicious Nutella hazelnut spread, easily found in most US grocery stores. QFC carries this in the Seattle area.
On base we have the mighty fine Almond Butter, also found at Whole Foods – in very convenient little 6g squeeze packs.
And finally, on percussion we have Harmony House Foods freeze dried Mango Slices.
So lets put it all together we take our dried banana and chop it into little chunks like so:
We then spread out the Nutella and Almond Butter onto a Tortilla.
Sprinkle the Bananas and mango on top.
Roll and devour.
Not bad. These suckers are going to make their debut somewhere on Day 3 – halfway between Sunrise and Indian Bar.
