Who says that camping meals have to rely heavily on meat!?
Camping is all about rediscovering our relationship with nature, and there is no better way to celebrate that relationship than by immersing ourselves in a fully plant-based diet!
Trust me, when you open up your travel backpack and pull out those colorful fruits and veggies, the meat will be the last thing on the minds of your friends and family.
Therefore, we have picked out 5 most delicious vegan camping recipes which will undoubtedly bring unprecedented joy to your palate!
1. Grilled Peaches & Pecans Salad
Who in their right mind would put peaches on a grill?
Well, it turns out that most of us are quite deluded. Grilled peaches are so incredibly tasty! However, what we love the most about this dish is that it takes almost no time to prepare it.
Start off by filling the most humongous of bowls with a mixture of greens (make sure there is some arugula).
Then, pull out a few peaches and halve them with a knife. After you have tossed the pits away, lightly sprinkle your peaches with a dash of maple syrup. Not only will it make them taste sweeter, but look glossy as well.
The next step includes flinging them on the grill for a few minutes.
While the peaches are sizzling on the grill, chop some pecans on the side and then mix them with the greens. Lastly, move those orange halves of delight and add them to the mixture of greens and pecans. Voila!
2. Banana Coconut French Toast
Everyone loves a good French toast for breakfast! We would even argue that it is the ultimate breakfast!
However, camping is not exactly the perfect setting for making French toast, because the ingredients needed to make it have to be refrigerated (milk, eggs, butter).
Precisely for that reason, this banana-coconut milk French toast recipe is a killer! All of the ingredients are capable of lasting at least a few days before going bad.
So, here is how you prepare it. Peel a couple of bananas and put them in a bowl. Then, use a fork to mash them until they become very soft.
Add the coconut milk, as well as a pinch of salt and cinnamon. Next, drop your bread slices into the bowl and let them soak in the mixture on both sides. Finally, grill the bread slices until they are well-done.
Our advice would be to serve them with some fresh strawberries or blueberries and maple syrup.
3. Apple Pie Quinoa Porridge
Here we have another delightful breakfast dish. There is nothing more soothing than having a warm porridge at the break of dawn.
It just sets the tone for the whole day ahead. Like most of the recipes we will present to you, this one also takes no more than 20 minutes to prepare! Quick and easy.
First, take a cup of rinsed quinoa and put in a pot together with a finely chopped apple, some water, salt, cinnamon, and coconut milk.
Bring the mixture to a boil. Then, take the temperature down a notch and let the mixture simmer until the quinoa absorbs the liquids.
Lastly, remove your porridge from the heat, add some maple syrup, walnuts, and raisin. Could not be simpler and more delicious!
4. Tofu Vegetable Kebabs With Peanut Sauce
We have included these swords of deliciousness simply because they are so tasty, that even the people who do not like tofu grow fond of it after trying them out.
Truthfully, this recipe does take a bit more time to prepare, so it would be wise to fiddle with it only if you are going on a one-day excursion to the great outdoors. However, most of the preparation can be done from the comfort of your kitchen, meaning that you only get to bring the unroasted kebabs to the picnic.
First and foremost, put a few bamboo skewers in cold water for 20 minutes. In the meantime, pull out your bowl and mix ½ cup of peanut butter, ½ cup of hot water, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and 2 minced garlic cloves in it.
Then, put your cubes of extra firm tofu into the marinade and let them rest for about 20 minutes. While you are waiting, chop some bell peppers, red onion, zucchinis, and mushrooms into chunks.
Finally, thread the vegetables and the tofu onto the skewers. Grill them when you get there!
5. Foil Wrapped Baked Sweet Potatoes With Chili
Here it is. The final recipe. Gosh is it a good one. Before anything else, wrap a few sweet potatoes in aluminum foil and throw them straight onto the fire.
Trust us, this way, the will be done within 30 minutes. While the sweet potatoes are baking, you have enough time to make the chili. Put a diced onion into the pan with some olive oil and saute it for a few minutes.
Add some drained kidney beans, tomato paste, beer, 1 tablespoon of chili powder, ½ tablespoon of cumin, and ½ teaspoon of salt. Let it simmer for 15 minutes. When the sweet potatoes are nicely baked, cut them in the middle and pour over the hot chili.
Nummy! If you ask us, this is the perfect dish for those chilly autumn camping adventures.
