Proteined Taters for Backpackin' & Bikepackin'

Want a quick, hot, cheap, tasty, comforting meal that provides both carbs and protein for your next overnight backpacking or bikepacking trip? Try this great little supper or breakfast idea:

  • Boil 2 cups of water on your alcohol, solid fuel or gas ultralight stove.
  • Remove water from heat & add one package of Hungry Jack Easy Mash'd Potatoes. Five flavors available: Cheesy Homestyle, Hearty Baked, Creamy Butter, Premium Homestyle, & Roasted Garlic. (I buy mine at the local Dollar General Store for $1 a package.)
  • Add 1/4 cup (more or less according to personal preference) of Bob's Red Mill Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP).
  • Cover & let set for a couple of minutes to let the TVP soften.
  • Enjoy!

This will feed one hungry person as a total meal or divide nicely for two folks with other side items.
