Backpack Gourmet by Linda Frederick Yaffe, a librarian and camper, offers more than 150 recipes for hikers seeking an alternative to the expensive, often boring, freeze-dried prepared meals that are sold in stores. Most of them are for dishes that are completely cooked at home and dried in an electric dehydrator (or an oven), then simply rehydrated with boiling water, requiring no further cooking at the campsite. There are also trail snacks and other no-cook recipes, as well as cookies, muffins, and other baked goods. Some of the recipes are vegetarian, while others offer vegetarian (or vegan) options.

This book provides recipes and instructions for good hot grub you can make at home, dehydrate and pack for fast, easy and healthy eating on the trail. Author: Linda Frederick Yaffe. Softcover; 147 pages. Stackpole Books; copyright 2002. If you reject boring, expensive, commercially dried meals and time-consuming, heavy cook-in-the-field meals, here's another choice: Dry your own! Since you're simply heating (not cooking) your home-dried meals, you'll use far less fuel and your pack will weigh less. Features casseroles, pastas, soups, chilies, stews, chowders, beans, pilafs, dried fruits, trail mixes, bars, cookies and more. Includes great vegetarian options.
