When we head off in our caravan I like to be prepared and make sure I do the shop in advance. I tend to stick to the same things that I know will transport and keep well. But it is a bit predictable and our BBQ lacks a little originality.
So we put the word out that we were looking for some delicious and different camping meals to revamp our campsite cuisine. The response was great so we’ve rounded up a dozen of the best camping recipes to inspire you in this post!
1. Campfire Salmon
2. Zesty Lemon Spaghetti
3. Curried Sweet Potato And Brown Lentils With Mushrooms
4. Kebabs with chorizo, red onions and peppers
5. Artisan Pizza on a Campfire
6. Campstove Curry
A nice easy curry and rice dish made on a camping stove. Lianne from AnklebitersAdventures tells us:
“We love a camp stove curry just chicken and a jar of sauce as it makes it much easier. We then use some boil in the bag rice too and job done!”
Maria from OneTinyLeap also votes for a good curry.
“We always do a curry – easy to do different spice levels, and cater to vegetarian and vegans in the group. Poppadoms, onion bhajis, chutneys and parathas as a side.”
7. Witches Stew
Jade from MummiesWaiting tells us about their favourite recipe Witches Stew!
“We love witches stew! It’s bacon, sausages, baked beans and tinned tomatoes all thrown in a sauce pan and cooked. At the end we mix a bit of worchestershire sauce in and serve with a bap. It’s on our list because it’s so easy to make so perfect for the day you get there when you are tired from setting up.”
8. Freshly Caught Crayfish
Laura from the BreastestNews has a great idea for using freshly caught crayfish.
“We love a good camping meal. We’re lucky where we camp in Scotland there’s a clean river nearby with crayfish. We hunt them in nets or by hand then cook up for a tasty dinner. I use a small camp stove and camping pot. Use the left over water to boil some rice and it tastes delicious.”
9. Cowboy Beans
Rachel from MarvellousMrsP has a great recipe to make ahead of your trip for a super easy and tasty dish.
“These are the ingredients for Cowboy Beans. We just add sausages. Cook ahead of time and freeze- then all you need to do is defrost and warm up on a camping stove. Delicious!”
10. Damper Sausages
“We like damper sausages for a quick light meal. You make a basic dough, wrap around frankfurters on a stick and grill. The kids in our camping group went mad for them.”
11. Tomato and Bacon Risotto
Emma from HappyFamilyHub has a great way to cook up a simple risotto whilst outdoors. Here’s what she told us:
“There’s nothing better than eating outdoors in the fresh air! We love getting some risotto rice, flavoured with a bit of tomato and serving with freshly fried bacon. For afters, you can’t beat toasted marshmallows. Delicious!”
Whether it’s tinned, fresh or even powdered, soup has got to be on every campers shopping list. Jaymee from TheMumDiaries agrees with us.
“Nothing beats soup! Especially in the colder evenings.”
