Three Easy Healthy Camping Recipes

Quinoa Salad (to be made before leaving)

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups cooked Quinoa

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar
  • 2 chopped green onions or other onions
  •  Optional lemon juice or walnuts

Put quinoa in fridge to cool while you mix your dressing. Mix olive oil and vinegar and add chopped onions. Add red pepper to cooled quinoa along with dressing. Add lemon juice and walnuts if desired and pack the salad into a giant Tupperware for a first meal.

 

Hamburger Volcanoes filled with Veggies

Ingredients:

  • Hamburger meat
  • Chopped Carrot
  • Chopped Celery
  • Green Peas
  • Potatoes
  • Onion

Directions:

This is a camping recipe that I have not personally made, but that my mom made all the time when she went camping as a kid.

First chop of all your vegetables in whatever assortment you want. You can substitute vegetables but keep in mind that you will be cooking everything together so they should have relatively the same cooking time.  Lay out approx 10 inches by 10 inches of tin foil or enough to wrap your patty in. Shape hamburger meat into patty and create a well to fill up with vegetables. Add the vegetables in and wrap tinfoil around patty, leaving a small space for air to escape. Place on fire to cook. You MUST wait until your hamburger no longer has any pink in it, approx 30 minutes depending on fire.

 

Greek Yogurt with Granola, Honey and Fruit

Ingredients:

  • Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Granola
  • Honey
  • Fruit (can be fresh, frozen or dried)

Directions:

Scoop your yogurt into your bowl. I like to use plain Greek yogurt since it is higher in protein and lower in sugar than many alternative yogurts. Sprinkle granola on top, whatever fruit you have and then add honey for flavour/sweetness. Voila! A delicious, fast and easy breakfast.
