My S/O and I took our first serious back-country trip in more than 15 years last week. We relied completely on this book for meal planning and food preparation. We were not disappointed. The recipes are all written in clear language, and are easy to follow. Packable trail instructions are available on-line, which helps with cooking in remote campsites. Of course, we could not try every single recipe -- but here are some of the best ones we tried. We had Olympus Oatmeal for breakfast every day. The Brunswick Stew was excellent, although it took a long time and lots of fuel to rehydrate the dried beans. The Vegan Super Hero Burritos were our favorite. The Whole-Food Granola Bars and Horse Thief GORP (we used unsweetened chocolate chips instead of carob chips) saw us through some long days of paddling and hiking. Our favorite snacks were the Energy Balls. We fought over the last one of those! I would warn others that many of the recipes call for prepackaged foods, such as Zatarain's Red Beans and Rice. People with specific health concerns should check the contents of these items before they use them. Fortunately, Zatarain's makes a low-sodium version of Red Beans and Rice, which we used. Otherwise, this is an excellent book. You can truly trust the recipes. I recommend it highly.

I really enjoyed the first book by Tim and Christine Conners and now the couple has come out with a second book in the Lipsmackin' Backpackin' series that is completely vegetarian. Recipes include Fabulous Fry Brownies, Miso Madness, Algonquin Apple Leather and a series of bread recipes that would make any backpacking trip more enjoyable. There are great dishes for each meal time and some wonderful GORP ideas. The book has a range of drinks, fruit leathers and decadent desserts. I was pleasantly surprised when I found a recipe for Coleslaw which is dehydrated at home and rehydrated on the trail.
The recipes are tested numerous times to ensure that they turn out well on your adventures. The gang here did a little of the testing to help out. We even found that the Green Dragon Pad Thai tastes great once you get past its vibrant color. Trailside instructions are printed with each recipe and again in the back of the book. The packable trailside cooking instructions are perfect for placing in the zipper bag with the food contents. The cut-outs appear in the same order as the recipes for easy finding.
Although Lipsmackin' Vegetarian Backpackin' is a meatless collection of good eats, it is a book easily enjoyed by all.

I kept checking this book out from the library (as well as its omnivorous counterpart Lipsmackin' Backpackin': Lightweight Trail-tested Recipes for Backcountry Trips) and finally bought it. So many good recipes that both my husband and I enjoy making at home and eating on the trail. It's got a good enough mix that when we want to use meals that only need boiling water and not simmering, we still find what we're looking for. I like being able to find hearty trail meals that don't always involve meat - this is a great resource for building a trail meal rotation.

We really enjoyed several of the recipes on a recent three nite pack trip to Porcupine Mountains, MI. Burritos, Cous Cous and Brownies made from dry ingredients available at grocery store made for really great almost gourmet and inexpensive trail dinners. Many recipes require a dehydrator which we lack, but it seems like any serious backpacker should consider buying one to save big bucks on food. This book is not just for vegetarian or Vegans. Three of four in our group are defintely meat eaters but dinners especially were loved by all of us. I actually ended up making some recipes at out of leftovers from trip and they tasted good even in the comfort of my own kitchen at home.

I have been a vegetarian for 40 years...a backpacker not as long. The recipes taste very good and just the info on how to prepare different foods has been very helpful for putting my own recipes into backpacking form.

This book is full of quick and easy recipes that taste good. My family used recipes from this book on a 9-day road trip and saved a ton of cash by not eating out every day. The easy clean up and little need for cooking equip make this a great camping cook book.
