Great review, those dehydrated meals can be tricky to prepare.
I use a less is moreapproach and then add more if needed and a good stir halfway through the prep time helps a lot.

I liked the oriental rice best of the various rice meals available, nice Chinese style sauce nicely spiced with a soy sauce flavour and I was amazed the crunchy veggies stayed crunchy aka the water chestnuts while the others stayed soft but had good texture and bite.
I came, I saw, I ate some rations then fell asleep amongst the clover.

Rocky's Tip: Use 2/3 the recommended water, and slowly pour the food into the water, not the other way around. No dry pockets or excessive stirring that way. Add water towards the end of the soak period, and only if needed.
