Camping Grub

Post by Uncle Ants » Wed Jul 16, 2008 14:33

Some of us will be camping weekend after next and thought some tasty recipes that can be done on a camping burner might go down well.

Here's mine:

Spicy beans

Tin of Ful Mesdames (Fava beans - you can get in most funny food shops or sometimes you can get them mixed with chick peas which works too)
couple of garlic cloves
an onion
a little tin of tomato puree
2 dessertspoons of ground cumin and a bit of chilli powder to taste
a bit of oil

Chop the onions, crush the garlic and fry in the oil til soft, add the cumin and stir some more.
Drain the beans, stir into the onions and oil, add the puree.
Cook for about 5 minutes and add a bit of water if it gets too thick.

Takes about 10 to 15 minutes total, can be done on a single burner, and is very tasty. Good with a bit of pitta bread and tomatoes.

Foul Madams, as they are called at a shop near us. Giggle, chortal, etc.

:) they are nice though ... well they are if you do something nice with them anyway.

crisps serves 1

go to shop
ask for some foil wrapped chipped potatoes (not cheese and onion if you want to pull. not scampi unless you want to be arrested)
exchange crisps for currency
eat the crisps
lovely, lovely crisps
When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called 'the People's Stick.'

Yep, they are great for making veggie fajitas, especially if you bash them about a bit in the pan.

I was thinking about camping food today and wondering whay to bring, given that I'm not sure I'll be in much of a state to operate a camping stove in the evenings, and I don't want to miss the bands in the day.

Would those be breakfast crisps, lunchtime crisps or teatime crisps? Teatime crisps followed by a Wagon Wheel for dessert presumably.

Last year we cooked a fine meal on Friday night and breakfast ... and that was it. The rest was from the delightful festival site cafe.
