Vegan Camping Recipe: Campfire Broccoli

April 9th, 2018 - filed under: The Food » Recipes


While we were getting ready for our road trip, I was playing around in Instagram stories, sharing my excitement. And to my surprise, I got a lot of messages from people asking me about camping/road tripping while vegan. I love that topic!

One of the most frequent questions was: what do you cook while camping?

So, during the trip, I shared campfire recipes in my Instagram stories. And then people asked me to share them here on the blog as well — so here we go! I think vegan campfire cooking is actually really easy, as long as you keep it simple and stick to what you love.

My family? We love broccoli!


Lay out a large piece of tin foil (I actually double layered it) and spread broccoli on top. Add a few cloves of rough-chopped garlic, salt, pepper, and a generous drizzle of olive oil. Tuck a few slices of lemon in there for good measure.


Wrap it all up to make a sort of tin foil tube. You don’t want it too tight since the goal is to let it steam. But it should be sealed.


Set it over the campfire. You can put it directly into the flame — don’t worry! It needs to get hot. Leave it for 8 minutes, then flip it and let it go 8 minutes more.


And that’s it! Unwrap the foil (be careful of that steam escaping) and you’re good to go. It’s so easy, but seriously delicious.

We served ours with traditional camping fare. It was perfect.
