Rated 1 out of 5 by from Barely edible I decided to try a number of different vegetarian freeze-dried meals for a recent camping trip, and this one was just awful. I'm one of the least picky eaters I know, yet I still ended up throwing away about half of this meal after forcing myself to eat as much as I could stomach. I was going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say maybe I got a bad batch, but based on the other comments it sounds like that wasn't the case. AlpineAire, please go back to the drawing board on this one! Save yourself the money and the sad situation of being stuck in the wilderness with no food---other brands make some delicious vegetarian fare.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising Win Had this on the third night of a backpack in the Sierras. It was by far the best freeze-dried meal we had. Love that the entire ingredient list consists of real ingredients (no corn syrup, etc.) and that the dish was quite flavorful and looked/tasted like real food.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent veg meals I wanted to like it better. I don't really like cilantro and there was a lot of it. Combined with the green onion, it was just too bitter. I think if you added hot sauce or an avocado, you could improve it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but needs seasoning I just did a 2 day hike covering 16 miles and had the meal for breakfast on the second day. The meal rehydrated nicely and tasted good, but it was lacking seasoning even after adding Taco Bell hot sauce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy meal This is a very tasty meal after a long day of hiking. It is nice to know that there is no freeze dried meat in this. It tastes very fresh and even has a nice smell to it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious This freeze dried food meal is better than what many Mexican restaurants can produce.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bummer City, USA Bought this for an overnight backpacking trip and had high hopes based on the recommendation from a fellow shopper. Unfortunately, my boyfriend and I did not enjoy this meal and spent majority of the night feeling awful. The taste was so off - I think the seasoning needs to be adjusted. With that said, the only positive comment I can offer is with regard to the portion -definitely enough for two people.
