3 Easy and Delicious Vegan Camping Recipes - Panergy
VEGAN CAMPING RECIPE #1: VEGETABLE KABOBS
This recipe takes the sweetness of peppers and/or tomatoes, the heat of onions, and the bite of mushrooms and kisses them upon the fire. Add a little balsamic vinegar and you'll have a meal that you won't find at home. For the kabobs you can choose whatever vegetables you like. A good idea is Zucchini, Onion, Mushroom, and Pepper. You can wash and cut these vegetables at home and then seal them in a ziplock bag. You can leave some balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper in the bag with the veggies to make them tart and savory. Cook them over an open fire and enjoy.
VEGAN CAMPING RECIPE #2: SIMPLE PANCAKES
Nothing beats a stack of flapjacks cooked over an open fire. Luckily, vegan pancakes are actually a little bit easier to make at the campsite than normal pancakes as we are using soymilk instead of dairy, which can be hard to have at the campsite. The only 'trick' to this recipe is to flip the pancakes at the right time and quickly. Too early or too slow and you'll have a broken, gooey pancake. You'll need:
1 Cup All Purpose Flour (you can go Wheat flour if you want)
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
1 Cup Soymilk
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
Pinch of Salt
Structure and procedure is very important with this recipe. Because we are using so much Baking Powder we need to assemble this very carefully. Take the Flour and the Baking Powder and mix it together. We want to make sure there are no lumps and the mixture looks light. Now add the Sugar and salt and mix again. In a separate bowl mix the soymilk and the vegetable oil. Now add the dry stuff to the wet stuff as you heat up your pan. Don't over mix but you do want it smooth. Simply cook your pancakes and serve with whatever you prefer.
VEGAN CAMPING RECIPE #2: FLEXIBLE BLACK BEAN BURGERS
Another classic meal at the campsite : burgers. We can make a pretty tasty vegan burger right at the campsite and then grill it up over a fire. The best thing about these burgers is that you can add basically anything you like and they'll hold their shape and still be delicious. Here's the core concept :
One Can (15 ounces) Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tablespoon Ketchup
1 Tablespoon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Hot sauce
1/3 cup Instant Oats
Pretty simple core recipe, right? Well, from here you can add things like diced onions, jalapenos, extra sauces, broccoli, or whatever you want! When you add vegetables to this, make sure they are diced so the mouth-feel is still nice.
Take the beans and mash them up real good. You want them to be mostly broken apart, but some chunks are okay. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix to combine. Now is the time to add the vegetables and extras.
When you cook these you want a high heat. We want to get the outsides nice and crusty to it can take it's form without falling apart. I'd recommend cooking them on tinfoil instead of an open grill grate.
These 3 vegan recipes are simple, easy to make, and delicious. Eating vegan does not mean we can't go camping. With a little bit of know-how and a little bit of preparation we can have delicious and fulfilling meals without making any sacrifices to our beliefs and diet.
