  5. Bring water to a boil.
  6. Cover.
  7. Remove from heat.
  8. Let sit 5-7 minutes; fluff with fork.
  9. Serve with a bit of powdered milk mixed with water.

Tried this on a camping trip last year and it worked great! We used dried apples and added a drizzle of pure maple syrup. Doesn't take up much space in the camper and is very filling.
