TIPS AND TRICKS FOR THE CAMPING KITCHEN

Other

A camping kitchen must be light, multifunctional and efficient. We show you the best tips and tricks for cooking on the go. And while waiting for your food to get ready you can easily follow all football predictions for today.

 

When camping and in a motorhome, we don’t have our kitchen at home with us. Nevertheless, food and drink are important parts of life and should not be neglected when travelling. Here you will find tips for camping and motorhome recipes and for the mobile kitchen.

 

PLANNING

 

Plan your camping trip in advance.

The first important step is to plan your camping kitchen:

 

Think about how much weight you can take with you and whether it might make sense to divide the luggage between all your fellow travellers. A camping packing list can help you.

You should also check which kitchen utensils you already have at home – you don’t always need new professional equipment.

If you are traveling with others and want to cook together, it is worth planning possible dishes in advance.

Even if cooking over a campfire is romantic, it is not permitted everywhere and can sometimes be dangerous. Especially when camping with children, it’s better to play it safe. 

 

So it’s better to plan alternatives such as a sturdy gas stove that can withstand a large pot in any weather – you can’t dig a hole everywhere to stabilize it in windy conditions. Seek advice from an outdoor store if you are unsure. 

Tip: Think carefully about which gas cylinder you want to take with you. A large cartridge may seem sensible at first, but even if it is half empty, you will still have to carry the whole cartridge around with you.

 

You need these utensils for the camping kitchen

You will need various materials for your camping kitchen.

Some utensils have proven themselves for the kitchen when camping:

 

  • Camping stoves such as those you can find at Bergfreunde
  • lighter
  • suitable cartridges that can withstand the temperatures and conditions of your destination
  • a combination of a large and small pot including lids (e.g. from Bergfreunde)
  • Stainless steel cans for storage or as plates or bowls (available from Avocadostore, among others)
  • a quick-drying board
  • Cutlery and a sharp knife
  • Thermos flask or thermo mug for hot or cold drinks
  • a drinking bottle with a wide opening (e.g. here: The best drinking bottles for on the go)
  • Washing-up liquid and brush
  • Tea towel
  • garbage bags

 

WATER TREATMENT WHEN CAMPING

 

Depending on your camping destination or region, you may also need additional utensils such as drinking water filters or hydration packs. In Germany, you can fill up your water bottle in public toilets or at rest areas. In other countries, however, the tap water may not be drinkable – or you may be in the middle of nature and there is no tap. In this case, water filters or water treatment tablets can be useful. Especially if the water does not come from a clear river source but is already stale, aids can provide drinking water.

 

One simple method is chemical treatment using tablets (e.g. from Bergfreunde). The tablets do not take up much space and usually work quickly, making the water drinkable after a few seconds.

 

Water filters are available in different variations (e.g. from Bergfreunde). On the one hand, there are some that resemble a straw. You simply hold these in the water and drink through them. The water is filtered directly. There are also water containers available that have an integrated filter system. They usually consist of two cups that are pressed into each other. As the inner cup has a filter at the bottom, the water is cleaned and can be drunk very easily from the cup.

 

Combinable basic ingredients for the camping kitchen:

A quick rice dish is ideal for camping. When it comes to food, you should make sure that it can withstand minor hardships, is economical and does not weigh down your luggage too much. As already recommended, it is worth planning your meals roughly in advance so that you only take the quantities you actually need. Also check what grows in the regions where you want to camp and what you can buy locally.

 

If you are traveling without a mini-fridge, you should also focus on less perishable products.

 

Your camping kitchen could contain these ingredients:

 

  • Pasta with sauce ingredients (e.g. strained tomatoes, onions and lupin meal)
  • Rice with ingredients for sauce
  • Other vegetables such as tomatoes, roots and cucumbers
  • Crackers or crispbread for in-between meals
  • Spreads that keep without refrigeration
  • trail mix for energy boosts
  • Water if you can’t find a place to fill it right away
  • Organic spices and oil

 

OUR RECEIPTS FOR YOU

 

You can pack food in tins to prevent it from being damaged in your luggage. They can also be used to store leftovers or as plates and bowls. Glass and porcelain are less suitable because they are usually heavier and more susceptible to breakage.

 

Breakfast while camping

You can start the day on the go with a hearty breakfast from the camping kitchen. If you have a camping stove with you, you can even prepare a hot breakfast. Then you can, for example, when camping in a motorhome:

 

Bake pancakes or pancakes

heat up baked beans

prepare homemade porridge

If you don’t want to take a camping stove with you or don’t want to use it first thing in the morning, you can also prepare a cold breakfast. Suitable for this:

 

Overnight oats: recipes for a quick and healthy breakfast

Homemade muesli with yogurt and fruit

Chia pudding: basic recipe and two variations

 

Recipe idea: One-pot pasta

When camping or traveling with a motorhome, one of the challenges is to cook well with as few dishes as possible. One-pot recipes, i.e. recipes that can be cooked completely in one pot, are therefore just right. Here is a recipe for pasta with a protein-rich vegetable and tomato sauce.

 

You will need 3-4 portions:

 

  • 2 onions
  • 1 pack/1 jar of strained tomatoes
  • 4-5 fresh tomatoes
  • 2 roots
  • Corn or similar space-saving vegetables according to taste
  • Lupin meal
  • noodles
  • Oil for frying
  • Water for cooking

 

Preparation: 

 

Peel and chop the onions and roots, then sauté in a pan with the oil.

Add the chopped tomatoes and deglaze with the tomato purée. 

Allow to simmer a little and pour in the lupin meal. Lupin meal is a domestic substitute for soy or meat and contains a lot of protein.

After a few minutes, add water to taste, followed by the pasta and other vegetables. There should be enough water in the pot to cover the pasta.

Allow everything to cook until the pasta is al dente.
