When I go stove-less it’s a nice break from cooking, and my food can be pretty light, calorie rich, and tasty.

I’ve been playing around with “solar” cooking a bit by putting dried beans (or whatever I want to rehydrate) in a ziplock in the top of my pack and walking with it for a few hours. It’s a nice way to have a warm meal without a stove.

Walking Taco Recipe:
Dehydrated refried beans, rehydrated to your favorite consistency & warmed by the sun, add a handfull or two of fritos to the zip lock baggie or your bowl. Garnish with lime and salsa from a little plastic take out cup that you brought from the last town, half an avocado, some trailside wild onions, or a dash or two of your favorite hot sauce. Walk, eat, and enjoy!
