Looking for recommendations for camp food for vegetarians. I have 2 lunch meals in canoes on day 2 and 3. Non vegetarians are eating salami and cheese (non cook, possibly eating while rafted up i.e. on the river not on land). Currently have trail mix for the veggies. Then supper on Day 3 which could be swapped with Day 2 for spoilage reasons.

So far I do not even know who they are since they are in a different Scout troop from mine. I've been asking the other troop to put me in touch with them directly.

How long do boiled eggs keep? If they eat eggs I could do that.

Oh yeah I have also sent a message asking about eggs, milk, and fish since most vegetarians eat the first two and some eat the latter.

I don't know about hard-boiled but fresh eggs keep for weeks.

Hi,

Both my daughters are vegetarian- and campers/ canoeists (the eldest participated in the 150 canoes on Canoe Lake in the rain yesterday...)

As a result we have a lot of vegetarian food on camping and paddling trips.
Wraps and Quesadillas are big hit: cheese, spinach/lettuce, beans, salsa. PB and jam in wraps too, or honey.
We also take TVP that can be added to beans, tomato sauce to make chili. Stove top pizza with pizza sauce/tomato paste, lots of veggies and cheese.

Lots of choices.
Bruce

Oatmeal and raisins for breakfast. Bannock and Peanut Butter for lunch (Jif honey peanut butter is best). Dinner of quinoa, veggies, beans, and olive oil (equal parts quinoa and dehydrated veggies by weight and about half that of beans). Lentils would be the quickest to cook. I cook and dehydrate my beans (black and red) at home so it only takes 10-15 minutes to rehydrate later; about the same amount of time it takes to cook the quinoa. Almonds make great snacks as well as dried fruit.

Rice could be substituted for the quinoa. I don't like pasta in that dish. I've found quinoa is the quickest to cook and tastiest.

Falafels! Buy a dry mix from the grocery store. Follow directions to fry in oil. Wrap in a tortilla or pita with veggies and tzatziki and/or homous etc.

Delish!

Lunch ideas: red pepper hummus (can buy a fresh-dehydrate-rehydrate in zip lock and squeeze out) on tortilla, black bean salsa (PC I think-same method), can dehydrate-re-hydrates easily - also makes a nice soup with added veggies or beans, taboulie (sp-I forget where the h goes) in a pita - boxed is fine, just add water. Can bulk up the protien on this with some walnuts. Hummus is a winner-can get already dried, or dry it yourself- easy peasy.

I think the directions say to use 1/2-1" of oil. That's quite a bit to take camping. I would try it at home with less.
