The answer is Yes, but... you might want to make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm this as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you contact the Nutrisystem guys because they can answer you better...
I usually make mine at work. I boil the water in a cup first and then add to Nutrisystem lunch, stir well and then replace lid and set something heavy on top. Wait longer than the directions say. Or I sometimes make it the night before at home on the stove. Then reheat for lunch in the microwave. Especially if I am having the lunch fettucini.
Cheese. This is really good and it thickens up quite a bit...
OK, what I have found works the best is this:.
Add the boiling or hot water a little at a time while mixing thoroughly. Add just to the top of the mix. Keep stirring. After all of the dried food is mixed in, add just enough water so that it is just a little beyond the consistency you want it to be when you eat it. This is usually NOT to the mixing line. Let sit for the required time.
You can always add a little more liquid if necessary..
Also - I have learned to microwave the mac and cheese for about 20-30 seconds after it sits. That way the noodles aren't crunchy at all..
When I'm at work, I microwave a mug of water to boiling and then add the water to the container..
Everyone has their own way of mixing; this just works for me..
Hint: If you like the Black Bean soup, add a tablespoon of FF sour cream. Tastes great!.
I add tap water, MW for 4 mins.....stir, another 20secs. Let stand for 4-5 mins to cool..
Has been perfect for me.......(same as my old Cup of Noodles time. LoL)..
I add a small amount of hot water and then stir to get out all those lumps of powder that form. I then fill the hot water to the line. (yes there is really a faint line inside the carton) I wait longer than the recommended time. I them put the entire carton in the microwave and heat it through..
It takes a minute to get the hang of those meals...
You guys have given me hope! Thanks for all of the advice...I can't wait until lunch tomorrow to try your ideas..
I make mine in the morning and then put it in an air tight container and warm it up at lunch time. It really does make a difference.....
Shake vigorously, open and stir with a fork to break up all the clumps and get stuff from the corners. Add boiling water to the line, stir quickley, then add more water to the line. Cover and wrap in a towel, put something on top to hold the lid down and let sit for 5-6 minutes. Stir again before serving..
Perfect every time...
Definitely need to scrape the bottom when stirring. I found powder still when I was at the bottom...
