Camping season is here!!!!!!!!!! (We are a little excited, can ya tell?)
We are headed into the mountains this weekend with family for some fun, fishing, hot springing, river relaxing, campfires and star gazing. I have to admit – I don’t do the tent thing anymore, I put in many a nights in the flimsy tent in an even flimsier sleeping bag. Here is a picture of our “tent”!
On to the food! We recently posted on Facebook about “eating the rainbow” and how it’s a great way to make sure you get all of the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. Well, just because you are camping in the woods, cooking over a campfire doesn’t mean you have to stick to hot dogs and canned beans!
We decided to do a Rainbow Hobo Stew – check out these veggies!
The sky is the limit when it comes to this camping favorite. Use what’s local, use what’s in season, use what you like, use what you haven’t tried before! Just chop it all up, add a little olive oil, salt and pepper, wrap in foil then cook over a BBQ or hot coals!
Give it about half an hour or so, and voila!:
Ready to jump in the car and head for the woods? Don’t let me stop you – here is the recipe!!
Ingredients (this is for 2 people, so adjust accordingly!)
*1/2 pound Italian sausage (casing removed, sausage crumbled) – you can always use diced chicken breast, grass fed beef, or portobello mushroom instead
*1 purple sweet potato, peeled and sliced into rounds
*1 carrot, peeled and sliced into rounds
*2 stems of kale, stem removed, chopped
*1/2 red pepper, diced
*2 crimini mushrooms, sliced
*1/2 red onion, diced
*1 clove garlic, chopped
*salt and pepper to taste
Prepare ingredients. Divide between 2 pieces of foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roll edges to seal everything in (we doubled up on the foil just in case!). Cook over hot coals or in a BBQ on medium heat for about 30 minutes, until everything is cooked through.
Unwrap and enjoy!!
