Gluten Free Camping Meals

This post should actually be called ‘The weekend I ate only beans’. Little did I know that everything I made (and my boyfriend’s dad made) was pretty much some sort of bean dish. Let’s just say I’m good if I don’t eat any beans for a long time.

Ok so here’s what I ate:

Gluten Free Camping Meals:

Vegetarian Chilli & Corn on the Cob
Mango Bean Salad
Black Bean Quinoa Burgers with Roasted Veggies
Gluten Free Chick Pea & Sweet Potato Burrito
Oatmeal w/ Banana


Simply Bar


The chilli was actually generously provided by my boyfriend’s dad and was eaten late at night so I don’t have a photo of that deliciousness (or the recipe) but this is my recipe for slow cooker chilli (not vegetarian).



Mango Bean Salad:

This is my favourite bean salad ever! Again made by my boyfriend’s dad. I’m not sure exactly what spices he uses but the dressing is more of a vinaigrette (main ingredient is red wine vinegar), there is a mixture of spices as well as mixed beans, mango, onion, yellow and orange pepper and garlic. I ate the whole container and didn’t share :)

  3. Shape the mixture into 6 patties and chill in the fridge for at least 1/2 an hour, more if you have time.

  5. Freeze in individual ziploc bags for later!

For my roasted veggies I took a long a little spice jar that had oil and different spices mixed together. I brought my veggies pre cut, smothered them with oil and folded in tin foil and let them roast on the fire.
