There’s nothing better than hitting the great outdoors for a fun-filled camping trip involving good company, nightly campfires and excellent snacks. But by the time you’ve pitched your tent and sorted out your gear, who has time to worry about whether your food has stayed chilled in the cooler? We’ve amassed the tastiest, easiest, fridge-free camping recipes you can whip together the next time you gather ‘round the fire.
Roasted Spiced Almonds
Looking for a little salty fireside crunch but tired of regular old chips and popcorn? These spiced almonds are the ticket. You only need four ingredients to whip them up, they’re ready to eat in about 25 minutes and you can pack them and bring them in an airtight container for a healthy snack that lasts for days.
Bread Baking for Beginners: How to Make the Perfect Sourdough Loaf
Bread making is an art, but it’s one worth trying — especially when it means you can bring perfectly crafted sourdough bread on your next camping trip. Healthier than most store-bought varieties, this loaf only takes a little over an hour to bake and doesn’t require a bread machine. Heck, while you’re at it, you may as well make two loaves… Just in case.
There are few things more Canadian than jerky, so we say celebrate with all the meat. This jerky is easier than you’d expect to prepare (no fancy tools required!) and it makes for a terrific hit of protein when you’re out in the woods.
Vegan Sunflower Seed Tuna Salad
Whip up a sammie that has all the tuna feels, but with zero actual meat. This vegan offering can double as a pescatarian delight too, however — just add in a can of tuna if you’re missing the real thing. Either way, no refrigeration required!
One-Pot Spaghetti With Fresh Tomato Sauce
Sure, you’ll need to actually cook this pasta over the fire and assemble it on-site, but considering the whole dish comes together in just one pot, it’s the perfect meal to feed a campfire crowd. Either skip the cheese or sub in shelf-stable Parmesan and you’re all set.
