Farro, Sweet Potato, Kale and Sausage Cast Iron Recipe

This week we shared this tasty pic from Hipcamp Field Scout, Eileen Roche. It looked so good, we had to get the recipe. Psst…We’re creating a community-sourced cookbook! Why? Because food always tastes better when you’re camping. Always. Share your best ramen hacks, tastiest trail meals, and most resourceful car camping concoctions here. We’ll be compiling recipes over the next few months in anticipation of our cookbook launch where we’ll share what the Hipcamp community can cook up.


It’s not really a “recipe” because I just combined some stuff I pulled from my fridge, but here’s what we did:

1-2 sweet potatoes (boiled, peeled, and cubed at home)
Apprx 1 cup farro (pre-cooked at home in water and veggie stock)
Sausages (we bought the pre-cooked kind at the store on the way up, but if they need to be cooked, probably start with that)
Sauté about a half bag of kale with butter, 2-5 min?
Add sweet potato, sauté a few moments longer
Add farro and sausages, cook until everything is toasty
Add almonds
Remove from heat, add goat cheese (I love these individually wrapped ones so you can just pack what you need)

Slice fresh tomatoes on top

Et voila

Sorry my cooking is so “this looks about right”

See all camping recipes.


Eileen Roche cooked this up at Autocamp Russian River—a community-styled glamping oasis in Northern California.
