Campfire Veggie Tales

veggie skewerWhenever we go camping we like to tell scary stories. We can’t help it. The roaring fire, the sounds of nature, and the lack of walls get our noggins working up to fever pitch. Our last camping trip to Bryce Canyon National Park had us dreaming up particularly juicy tales which even scared us. Luckily, when it comes to camp cooking our veggie skewers shouldn’t scare anyone. They are a deliciously healthy and quick meal. So for your next outdoor overnight expedition: stick with the conventional Rip Van Winkle stories and keep an eye on those skewers! Because no one wants to listen to scary tales on an empty stomach.

  1. They look great. Here’s mine, not too different. No courgette to hand, but I did have mushrooms. Button ones would be perfect, but otherwise half or quarter larger ones. I add bay leaf, and serve with a (home-made) barbecue sauce, basically soya, garlic, chilli/Tabasco, vinegar (usually white wine).
