I will keep saying it over and over, there is NOTHING, just NOTHING like having some hot soup in a thermos when you’re hiking, biking, snowshoeing or cross country skiing in the winter! It makes you feel gourmet AND warm AND satisified. YUMMY! One of my favorite winter trail eats is vegan dairy free corn chowder! I’ve been perfecting it over the past few years and I hope you enjoy it too! I’m not vegan or dairy free but I love this soup! I used to make it not vegan and with dairy but I like this way better.

My strategy for having hot food on the trail is to make it during the week, heat it up in the morning and pop it in my thermos. You can really use any mushrooms you want, but it’s fun to use seasonal mushrooms like chanterelles this time of year.
