Patagonia Provisions Organic Green Lentil Soup

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent balance of flavors and a delightful texture. I really enjoy this soup; it's probably my favorite on the trail. It has bulgur wheat along with the lentils, which gives it a great texture. The flavor is quite good, although I add just a touch of garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to punch it up.

Good To-Go New England Corn Chowder

rated 4 of 5 stars With complex flavors and an intoxicating aroma, this meal is particularly well-suited for winter backcountry trips. C'mon, who doesn't love a good chowder after a day in the snow?

Mountain House Seafood Chowder

rated 5 of 5 stars This stuff is awesome! Why don't they sell it in 2-person servings anymore? This is my all time favorite camping/backpacking food! Unfortunately Mountain House no longer sells it in anything other than a 10 serving can.  Full review
