Backpacking TVP Tacos

Written by Jenna Nodding on . Posted in Stories.

You won't even know this is meatless!

This has become a go to for us here at Get Outside. Quick, easy, and vegan! You can spruce it up with sauteed fresh garlic and onion or go lightweight with powered spices. We've even added shredded carrot and cabbage. The options are endless. The average person on our trips finds two tacos enough. Our lead guide and owner, Jenna, usually eats 3 or 4.
