Backpacking Food: How to Make Veggie Mixto

How to Make Veggie Mixto

I know you all probably have a backpacking trip planned for this Summer. And it’s exciting to get out into the bushes, hike for miles and find that perfect vista by a river or lake. But I also know that you have to get there, sometimes with a long drive that takes hours or days. I’ve been on the road for the last year and a half and one thing I’ve figured out is that you can’t eat fast food or eat at a restaurant for every road trip meal. What I like to do is make a Veggie Mixto or Mixed Bag. Whip out the camp pot at the rest stop, parking lot, or trailhead and cook up a fast, tasty and nutritious meal in just a few minutes. There’s not really a rigid recipe for this meal but I like to find 2-4 veggies, a little oil, some seasoning, maybe a little cheese, and slap it all in a toasted tortilla.
