As I transition from the "boy scout" (stop and setup camp) to the "thru-hike" (hike till drop) style of hiking, I find less and less need for a stove and cooking food.
An hour before I stop for a meal, I add cold water to a prepared meal in a ziplock bag and rehydrate in my pack.
These prepared meals have a base consisting of humus, potato, black bean or split pea flakes. Each of these can be doctored with a multitude of other ingredients that will satisfy my palate.
I recently came across quinoa flakes. When rehydrated for an hour, this is a rather bitter tasting paste. I am looking for quinoa flake recipes to add to my trail menu.
