I was shopping online a couple years ago and found Backpackers Pantry FD foods to be vegetarian and very tasty. They do have their name website, and phone for questions at 800-641-0500. I live on FD JetBoil-simple meals, or military MRE's for weeks at a time when out on long climbing trips. Woodchuck ATC

I recently discovered MTR brand read-to-eat dinners. They are cheap, yummy and most of them are vegetarian. Both my local indian food markets sell them for $2 or less. I recommend the Mixed Vegetable Curry. Cook some instant white rice to make it more filling. Cruxic

Pasta with pesto or red sauce (add meat on the side).

Burritos with rice and beans. Add tofu if you're okay with it, or add scrambled eggs - yum!

Lentils have fueled peasants for centuries.

Definitely, that's what i take backpacking all the time now. Also what I like to do sometimes is buy the Knorr teriyaki noodles and chuck in a few handfuls of peanuts while it's cooking, sounds kind of weird but it's pretty good.

Looks just like the Indian food packs from Trader Joes - $1.99.

Also good in burritos, or tacos, is TVP with taco seasoning.
Not a bad substitute for meat, and it keeps, good for road trips.

BREAKFAST
oatmeal with dried fruit and some nuts

LUNCH
bagels with peanut butter and some fruit

DINNER
lentils, quinoa, and black beans (don't forget salt!)

Totally vegan and entirely delicious. Each one has all the macronutrients.

I'd reccomend tempeh instead of tofu. Way better texture and taste IMO.


For example instead of a tofu burrito cook your tempeh, then shake it with taco seasoning (make your own or buy it) and that makes a really nice burrito filling.

Along the tortilla line try cooking tempeh. Then adding avacado, spinach, tomato and any other veggie. Then cover than in "godess" dressing from trader joes. Delicious!


Those pre done indian food packets are good as well.
Cans of soup is easy.
Grilled cheese (use tofutti american if vegan)
Pasta and sauce
There are a few just add water soup/noodle things that are Veg.

For lunch i'd stick to simple things like PB etc.


For breakfast pretty much anything is good, just minus the meat.
Oatmeal
Cereal
Granola and Yogurt
Hash Browns
Tempeh Bacon (can make your own)
Tofu Scramble
Bagels and Cream cheese (tofutti or TJ's brand if vegan)

+1 on the Indian packages.

You can get them from Trader Joes (or a better selection at the indian markets). They taste acceptable given how easy they are to prep.

You might also want to check out soyrizo. Trader Joes and Food4Less carry it. This stuff is amazing!! Tastes just like the real deal and (I'm hoping) is way better for you.

Makes amazing breakfast or late night burritos.
