A camp would not be complete without some tasty foods to fill you up! Cooking at your campsite doesn’t need to be a difficult task, and you don’t need to sacrifice a delicious meal for a convenient one.
We’ve got a few quick and easy ideas you can try out at your next camping trip!
S’mores are the ultimate classic camp dessert. It’s unbelievably delicious and not to mention exciting to make! The classic and simple cooked marshmallow over a bonfire, drizzled in gooey chocolate, perfectly squished between crackers is extremely irresistible. But we’ve got a few twists you can put on this classic snack!
Why not add more layers to your s’mores tower by adding a layer of creamy peanut butter for extra gooey sweetness, or slice in fruits like banana or strawberries that work magically with the melted chocolate. Salted caramel also works extremely well, the flavours are just bursting for you to try. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your favourite biscuits and chocolates!
Maybe the thought of eating soup from a can is not your most exhilarating idea of a gourmet meal, but do not fear! Soup is made for you to be creative with its flavour to suit your taste buds.
Make soup more flavourful by adding in some extra ingredients to its base, simmer in some meats and veggies, (boiling potatoes and carrots in the broth is my personal favourite). Soup on it’s own id already superb but why not accompany it with some rice or noodles for a full meal.
Grab a pan, put it over the fire and get ready to stir and fry up a hearty meal! Stir-frying some veggies mixed with rice or meats is the ultimate quick, easy and delicious meal to try out.
Toss up some carrots, zucchini, eggplant, asparagus or whatever veggie you desire and sautee alongside some protein whether fish, meat, beans or eggs for a mouth-watering feed. You can never go wrong with stir-fry.
Boil up your favourite noodles, whether spaghetti or macaroni and combine with your choice of sauce whether carbonara or Bolognese. Pasta is one of the most loved dishes of all time and you really can’t substitute its texture and flavours for anything else. You definitely have to add pasta to your camping food list.
You can opt for sautéing your pasta in a creamy mushroom sauce or a chunky tomato-base, the skies are endless. Add in your favourite veggies or meats to contribute a more colourful flavour.
An extremely delicious, and equally as easy to make; Nachos are the ultimate camping snack. Add in your choice of corn chips, salsa and pour on as much cheese as your heart desires (the more cheese the better right?!).
If you want a more hearty meal, add some meats like chicken or pulled pork. Don’t forget the guacamole or sour cream for a flavoursome dip! A mixture of flavours and textures from crunchy to melt-in-your-mouth goodness is the perfect food to make while camping.
