I have been going backpacking in the mountains and this meal has become a staple of ours over the last few years. When planning meals for back country backpacking, it is important to pick foods that need minimal refrigeration, are lightweight, and doesn't take a up a lot of space. It's also important to pick food that tastes good and is nutritious! Quinoa fits all of these criteria!
Step 1: Ingredients
You will need the following:
-spices or flavoring of your choice
-turkey jerky (optional)
The amount we made was enough for 4 people, you might make more or less depending on the number of people you are cooking for. I encourage you to try this recipe before you leave for your trip so you can accurately gauge how much quinoa to bring.
