Vegan Camping Recipes

May 17, 2016

Historically, meat has dominated the grill when it comes to outdoor adventurers cooking while camping but there is no need to worry if you are a vegetarian or vegan camper. Camping Vegan has developed campground recipes that cater to these diets by recreating campfire classics with animal-friendly ingredients.

The Vegan BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches Recipe makes use of a Dutch oven and young green jackfruit as a meat substitute. With a homemade spice blend, canned jackfruit, brown sugar, BBQ sauce, and a little bit of oil, you can use the Dutch oven to cook the jackfruit until it begins to fall apart much like pork does. Add some vegan coleslaw made with shredded slaw mix, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, avocado, and agave nectar and throw it all between a couple slices of vegan approved bread and you’ve got yourself one heck of a healthy BBQ sandwich.
