It’s that time of year again, temperatures are dropping and we need a little more ‘heart’ to our meals.
I first cooked this absolute gem of a camping meal about a year ago, when winter chill was in the air and I was planning a weekend escape in the Blue Mountains.
This meal cook wonderfully on a fire in a ‘Dutch Camp Oven’ - if you have not yet bought yourself one, do so now. We recommend this little beaut
Olive Oil / Coconut Oil
1-2 Garlic cloves
1 Sweet Potato
2 cups of (hot water)
1-2 Stock cubes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon salt
1 chickpeas drained (or try lentils!)
1 bunch of kale
Get your campfire happening
Heat some olive/coconut oil in your camp oven
Add your garlic and onion, and leave to brown.
Add the sweet potato, water, stock, tomatoes and salt.
Stir baby stir.
Simmer, uncovered until the sweet potatoes are tender (approx 20mins)
Once the sweet potatoes are soft, add chickpeas and the kale.
Stir to combine and heat until the chickpeas have warmed through and the kale has wilted.
It is amazing how much of a morale booster a hot meal in front of the campfire can be. If you’re stumped for camp-friendly hot meal ideas, here are 5 great options for your next adventure.
