Camping Recipe: Couscous, Brussel Sprouts and Carrots Foil Pack

I’m an equal opportunity friend! I welcome my vegan and vegetarian friends to join me around the fire so we can all share a tasty meal and make some good memories when we’re outdoors. ?

A lot of people think that vegan or vegetarian food is complicated to make or that it has too many steps, and that can’t be further from the truth. ❤️ ?

When I’m planning a camping trip and after we’ve decided where we’re going and who is coming, I start a Google spreadsheet to plan the menu for our epic weekend. ? I note who’s coming and if they have a dietary restriction and I delegate who’s in charge of what.

More often than not, a vegetarian or a vegan friend is tagging along so I make sure that if I’m gonna be responsible for dinners when we get there, we’ll have something to accommodate everyone. ?

I’m the Foil Pack King™️, so yes, this is another foil pack recipe and this one goes out to my herbivore friends. ??

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pearl couscous
  • 1/4 lb carrots
  • 1/4 lb Brussel sprouts
  • 1/2 cup veggie stock
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut a piece of heavy-duty foil to a length of 12 inches curl up the edges by ½ inch on all 4 sides.
  • Oil center of foil which will help prevent anything from sticking.
  • Place the couscous in the center of the foil pack.
  • Mix and Place Brussels sprouts, carrots and red pepper in a single layer on top of the couscous, season with salt and pepper.
  • Fold sides of foil up to create a “wall” and carefully pour ½ cup of veggie stock over the whole thing.
  • Fold that baby up and get excited for dinner! Do not tightly wrap it, as there needs to be room for the steam to circulate within the pack.
  • Using kitchen tongs place pack, seam side up, on the medium heat coals or briquettes.
  • Cook on one side for 15 minutes at which point flip the pack, seam side down, and cook for the remaining 10 minutes.
  • Using kitchen tongs, remove the pack from the coals and let it rest for about 5 minutes.
  • Slowly unravel the pack back open and allow the steam to release. The steam will be very hot, please be careful.
  • Fill up a cup of nice warm cider and get your healthy meal on!
