REI Backpacking Recipe: Red Lentil Marinara

January 10, 2020

Red Lentil Marinara
Full recipe at: https://www.rei.com/blog/camp/backpacking-recipes-red-lentil-marinara

This vegetarian red lentil marinara sauce is a great way to bump up your protein while enjoying a big comforting bowl of pasta.

While our overall calorie count is important while backpacking, we also want to make sure we’re getting those calories from the right places too. After a long, tiring day out on the trail, we know it’s important to get some protein into our system. The protein will help our muscles repair overnight and keep us feeling full throughout the night. So we came up with a way to introduce some more protein into one of our favorite comfort foods: pasta with red lentil sauce.

REI Backpacking Recipes: Spinach & Artichoke Fettuccine Alfredo

December 19, 2019

Spinach & Artichoke Fettuccine Alfredo
Full recipe here: https://www.rei.com/blog/camp/backpacking-recipe-spinach-artichoke-fettuccine

This spinach and artichoke fettuccine alfredo is a rich and creamy treat to enjoy at the end of a long day on the trail. One of the reasons we love dehydrating our own meals is how easy it becomes to add fresh vegetables to almost anything. This would be just a simple pasta dish if we purchased it as a pre-packed meal, but by dehydrating it ourselves we can add heaps of fresh spinach and bright little bites of artichoke hearts.
