Quinoa & Rice: A Vegetarian Backpacking Recipe

Quinoa and Rice is an easy to cook vegetarian backpacking meal that tastes great. For this meal we used Quinoa, dehydrated carrots, dehydrated peas and other dehydrated mix vegetables. If you don’t have a food dehydrator, you can purchase dehydrated vegetables at a health food store. Finally, for some added flavor we added some great tasting chili powder.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 Cups of Water
  • 2 Cups of Quinoa
  • About 1 Cup of Dehydrated Veggetables
  • 3 Table Spoons Chili Powder

What to do:

At the campsite, boil 2 cups of water on your camp stove. Once the water is boiling add 2 cups of quinoa and cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add about 1 cup of mixed dehydrated vegetables and stir. After the vegetables have warmed up and hydrated a little, add 3 table spoons of chili powder and stir.
