Another Fork in the Trail: Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes for the Backcountry

Front Cover
Wilderness Press, Apr 1, 2011 - Cooking - 224 pages
Packed with lightweight, mouthwatering recipes for backcountry adventurers, Another Fork in the Trail is focused on delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes for those following vegetarian and vegan diets. It includes more than 120 recipes, all of which survived Laurie Ann March's rigorous testing, both at home and in the backcountry. Many of the recipes are gluten-free as well and thus suitable for the growing number of those suffering from celiac disease. From flavorful lunches, such as roasted tomato dip, to hearty dinners such as vegetable ratatouille, many of the recipes are prepared and dried at home, saving valuable time at camp. With recipes for desserts and baked goods in addition to the staples, the book covers menu planning and recipe creation and discusses other important considerations for the vegetarian and vegan outdoor adventurers.
