Trail Cooking

FBC Meals: Veggie Beef Rice Casserole

An old school FBC recipe, this freezer bag cooking one is easy to prep and quick to eat on the trail. It’s a simple blend of protein, veggies and carbs. Easy on the stomach at altitude on hiking trips in the mountains.


Sealed for trail time.

Veggie Beef Rice Casserole

In a quart freezer bag or a Food Vac bag:

Also Take:

FBC Method:

Place the bag in a FBC Cozy or similar.

Add 1¼ cups boiled water and oil to the bag, stirring well.

Let sit for 15 minutes.

One Pot Method:

Bring 1¼ cups water and oil to a boil in a smaller pot. Add in dry ingredients, stir well. Cover, turn off stove and let sit for 15 minutes.

If at high altitude, or in cold temperatures, insulate pot in a pot cozy.

Serves 1.


Bring along a couple packets of shelf stable Parmesan cheese to shake on.

When prepping recipes using freeze-dried ingredients (versus dehydrated) you want to ensure the bag is well sealed. Particularly with freeze-dried meat. If you are making the meal to use that weekend, a plastic bag will work great. If longer, I highly suggest using a FoodVac sealer and precut quart size bags.
