Gourmet backpacking dinner recipes
I find processed foods and unappealing at home and on the trail. I started dehydrating meals that I cook at home and now carry 3 ounce meals that are fantastic and quick to heat up by simply adding to boiling water. Lentils/Carrots/onions/tomatoes, red beans and rice, Corn soup/ wild rice/onions/mushrooms, Mushroom and spinach soup and this so much easier on my budget.
jujuhiker I'm with you on the processed crud. There are two great books out there which teach you to dehydrate and rehydrate tasty meals for hiking. They are A Fork in the Trail and Another Fork in the Trail. Backpack Gourmet is another excellent resource.
