How To Make Dry Soup Trendy: Put A Patagonia Tag On It

Patagonia Tsampa Dry Soup For Hiking and Backpacking

Leave it to Patagonia to give dry camping soup mix a makeover that transforms it from a bland meal into a delicious and hip dining experience.

The dry soup mix of the past was made of highly processed broth (probably infused with MSG), questionable meat and vegetables dehydrated to such a point that it is hard to distinguish between a carrot and piece of broccoli.

Patagonia’s version, on the other hand, is made entirely of organic, non-GMO ingredients — including Kale, of course. The base of the soup is Tsampa — a nutritious, nutty tasting flour that is staple in the Tibetan diet.

Hearty, Organic Dry Soup

Nutritious And Organic Dry Soup For Backpacking And Camping

Blended into the Tsampa flour are four different roasted whole grains, organic vegetables like carrots, kale and portabella mushrooms and herbs and spices.

The Patagonia Tsampa Soup was released under the Patagonia Provision sub-brand, which the company launched a few years ago with a wild salmon jerky product.

It is marketed as a high-altitude power food to keep you energized on grueling backpacking trips. It would be a great meal on a car camping trip as well, or even as a quick meal at home.

The soup is easy enough to prepare on the trail. It simply requires two cups of boiling water and a few minutes on the stove.

A single serving retails for $6.50. A 12-pack of Patagonia Tsampa Soup costs $70.20.
