Gluten Free Food
When you’re out hiking, backpacking, camping, hunting, and generally enjoying the Great Outdoors, it can be tough to find healthy, easy-to-make gluten free food. That’s where our selection of gluten free meals and snacks save the day. They’re lightweight, nutritious, and absolutely delicious. With so many meal options you might need some help deciding. Here are some of our all-time favorite Backpacker's Pantry picks — straight from the outdoor adventure experts.
Bring a bit of Thailand with you on your next backpacking adventure. Our mango sticky rice is a sweet, black sesame seed-topped Thai delight that’s vegan, soy free, and full of all the delicious mango and coconut flavors you’d expect from this classic dessert. Here’s a bonus secret — our mango sticky rice also makes for a delicious breakfast. All you need is 1-1 1/2 cups of boiling water and 15-20 minutes of patience.
Spice up your next trail-side breakfast with our traditional Indian rice pudding. This low sodium, soy free delight is full of almonds and raisins, plus an exotic spice blend of cardamom, orange peel, and honey. Prepare it by adding 1-1 1/2 cups of boiling water to the pouch. Stir well, let the mixture sit for 15-20 minutes, give it one final stir, and serve. You can also create a make-ahead cold breakfast with 2 cups of water and several hours of hydration time. And here’s another little secret: this dish is also perfect for dessert.
You’ll get two servings from this pouch, but we doubt you’ll want to share. Our spin on this classic Indian curry dish from the Punjab region features delectable chickpeas in a blend of chilies and rice. It’s also high in protein and calories, making it the perfect way to refuel after a long day spent outside. You’ll hardly believe a pot, water, heat to get that water boiling, and 15-20 minutes of rehydration time is all that lies between you and a lightweight, nutritionally balanced meal.
Bring the flavors of your favorite Thai restaurant out into the wilderness with our vegan and gluten free pad thai dish. Rice noodles and veggies are blended together with a spicy, sweet, and addicting garlic sauce. We’ve even included roasted peanuts for added texture and flavor — it’s all about the details. The best part? All that stands between you and your Pad Thai is some boiling water and a bit of time.
Bring a bit of the tropics along on your next outdoor adventure. This fragrant Caribbean classic puts a delicious Cuban twist on a sweet and savory blend of coconut milk, black beans, and bananas. It’s also high in protein, vegan, and gluten free. Like our other nutritious dehydrated meals, this entree is a snap to make. Boiling water, some stirring, and hydration time is all it takes.
Our sweet and sour chicken merges a perfect blend of sweet and sour spices with rice, pineapple, bell peppers, carrots, and all-natural chicken. We believe the food you eat while enjoying your favorite outdoor activities should be flavorful and easy to prepare, so try this on for size: all that stands between you and your next meal is some boiling water and 15-20 minutes of hydration time.
Our chef's sweet and satisfying twist on this classic French treat is sure to have you looking forward to dessert after setting up camp. If you’re wondering whether this treat comes complete with a burnt sugar topping, never fear — you’ll get the full creme brulee experience, no blow torch required. You won’t even need hot water for this one, because this sweet treat can be made with cold water.
