Easy Camping Meals: Dinner Ideas
This recipe for one-pot pasta from Fresh Off the Grid is a good one, not only because you can make it all in one pot, but also because it’s a good way to sneak in some veg. They’ve used kale, but you could also put spinach in or grated courgette.
If you don’t want to use lentil pasta, then just use regular or whole wheat pasta.
The great thing about tacos is you can prep everything ahead of time.
I like to make up a batch of Mexican-flavoured meat, using minced beef, some ground cumin, ground coriander, ground paprika, and some dried oregano. Cook with a little water and you can add tinned tomatoes too if you like.
Other toppings to enjoy with the tacos:
- grated cheese
- refried beans heated up
- sour cream
- salad (shredded iceberg lettuce is the handiest I find for using with tacos)
Then warm up your tacos quickly in your bbq frying pan for a couple of minutes. Put all the toppings out and everyone can put their own tacos together.
To make campfire pizza you just need a few simple ingredients:
- Pre-made pizza bases
- Pizza sauce
- Toppings e.g. sliced pepperoni
- Grated mozzarella cheese
You can use either a grill rack or a frying pan large enough to fit the pizza base, then cook it over the campfire. Start by heating up the crust for a couple of minutes, then add on your sauce, the topping(s) and then the cheese.
