5 Recipes for Making Delicious Backpacking

Tasty Recipes for Your Next Adventure

If you love sleeping under the stars, there’s nothing like a freshly cooked meal to keep you warm at night. We all know that cooking around a campfire has its limitations. You don’t need to invest hundreds of dollars in fancy campfire cooking equipment. Instead, you can prepare delicious ready-to-cook meals at home by combining all your ingredients in a resealable plastic bag. When it’s time to eat, just boil up some water and you’ll be ready to go. And with Smelly Proof bags, you don’t have to worry about all those different smells and ingredients stinking up your backpack. Use these tasty backpacking recipes on your next outdoor adventure.

Tuscan Chicken with Rosemary

Enjoy the flavors of Italy on the go with this scrumptious dinner recipe. Just mix together some boneless chicken strips, olive oil, fresh rosemary, spinach, lemon juice, and pepper in a Smelly Proof bag. When you’re ready to eat, place everything in a cast iron skillet and cook it up! You can garnish your meal with some parmesan cheese or some fresh tomato.

No-Bake Protein Bars

The perfect snack for exploring the wilderness, these protein bars pack a punch. To prepare at home, warm up some peanut butter and honey in a saucepan with the heat on low. When warm, put the peanut butter and honey in a large mixing bowl and add in some fresh whole grain oats, your favorite dried fruit, or some fresh coconut. Press everything into a baking pan and let cool. Now, you can cut up individual pieces and toss them in a Smelly Proof bag for a hearty snack on the go.

Authentic Chicken Fajitas

To get started, mix some thin boneless chicken strips with olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, and lemon juice in a Smelly Proof bag. Set aside in your cooler for about 30 minutes to let the chicken marinate. Then, put the bags of chicken in a pot of boiling water for around 5 to 6 minutes until tender. To eat, just pour the contents of the bag onto a tortilla and top with some fresh cheese, sour cream, salsa, or guacamole.

Hummus and Pita

Hummus is a tasty snack that you can enjoy practically anywhere. Just mash a can of chickpeas in a bowl (or use a food processor if you have one!), add in some olive oil, sesame tahini, lemon juice, and 4 minced cloves of garlic. Keep adding oil or water until the mixture has the right consistency. Now, just pour it into a Smelly Proof bag and bring along some fresh pita.

Honey Peach Cobbler

The perfect way to end a long day putting miles behind you. Start by slicing your peaches and tossing them in a Smelly Proof bag. Then, add some walnuts, a drizzle of honey, and a scoop of cornstarch. You can also add some seasoning like freshly grounded cinnamon. Now, mix the ingredients together by shaking the bag and store safely for later. When you’re ready to eat, just boil some water and put the bag in the water for two to three minutes. Presto, you have a scrumptious dessert that’s ready to serve.
