Backpack Hummus, veggies, pita bread

Tasty, very little field prep and cleaning involved, hummus is a good source of protein, high energy, and nutritious. Although this takes some home preparation (cutting the veggies) you can forgo carrying a stove or fuel on shorter trips. Because of the space of fresh veggies I tend to plan this meal on the first or 2nd day of the trip.

1 cup of Powdered Hummus
2 medium size zip locks of fresh veggies (baby carrots, cut celery, cut bell peppers, radishes, or olives)
1-2 packages of Pita Bread (about 2-3 per person)

Optional cooked sausage (for meat lovers, can heat on a stick next to a camp fire) At home pre-wash, dry, and pre-cut the veggies. Measure and pack the hummus (adjust portion for party size) in its own zip lock (large enough to add water to later) and write down how much water to add on the zip lock. On the trail add the correct amount of cold PURIFIED water to the zip lock, close, and mix well. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and it’s ready to eat with pita and veggies.
