3 Easy Camping Meals.

Easy Camping Meals #1: Tuna Pasta Salad:

Serves 4, preparation time 15 mins, cooking time 0 mins.

A very easy cold meal to fix up before or at camp and will fill you with energy. Great for kids and pretty healthy too IF you cut back on the mayonnaise (but tastes way better with all that mayo).

Tuna Pasta Salad.

Everything can be pre-chopped apart from the apple as they will turn brown.

There is no real order of mixing all the ingredients but does seem to work better by mixing everything apart from the pasta and then adding the mixture to the pasta by giving it a bit of a salad toss.

Add salt & pepper for tasting. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

100g of Tuna (in olive oil)

½ cup of chopped Celery

½ cup of Cashew nuts

1 Green Apple

½ Lemon squeezed

5 table spoons of Mayonnaise

3 cups of Pasta (5-6 cups of cooked pasta)

Coarse Salt & pepper for tasting



Can Food Mix up (Tropical version):

Serves 4, preparation time 1 min, cooking time 7 mins.

 

Nothing fancy here but still very tasty and extremely easy to make. I actually made this for the first time when we ran out of food on a family trip and have since been making repeats of it.

This meal will be ready in 15mins including 5mins of heating the meal.

Can Food Mix up (Tropical version):

Prepare the rice first by adding 60-90ml of water (depending on what the packet says), if there is no heating in the pan instructions add 90ml of water. Add the 3 table spoons of coconut milk and proceed heating the rice for 4-5mins being careful not to burn the rice.

Once the rice is ready add the other ingredients (cocktail franks, corn and pineapple) gently stirring avoiding mashing the cocktail franks until it’s hot. About another 5 mins.

Then it’s ready to serve.

If you don’t like the cocktail franks you can add pork or chicken chunks instead.

Add salt & pepper for tasting.


Ingredients:

3 Table spoons of Coconut milk

1 Steamed Rice bag (250-300g)

1 can of cocktail franks (or any meat you like, pork of chicken works best)

1 can of corn kernels (200g)

1 small can of pineapple chunks

Salt & pepper for tasting



Banana Mellows:

Serves 6, preparation time 10mins, cooking time 5 mins.

 One of the best deserts you will encounter at a camp, anyone with a sweet tooth will be drooling from the mouth over this one!

Banana Mellows.

This is so simple to cook, all you need are 6 bananas still in the peals and cut 10-15mm from each end of the banana being very careful not to cut past the peal on the other side.

Once prepared stuff each banana with chocolate and marshmallows carefully wrapping them up in foil tightly at each end but losses at the middle over the top of the bananas.

To eat simply scoop the banana mixture out with a small spoon.


Ingredients:

6 Bananas

Small bag of Marshmallows

Block of Chocolate

Aluminium foil


Banana Mellows.
