When it comes to cooking over a campfire, there are so many delicious meals that come to mind. But if I had to choose the best one I've ever prepared, it would have to be my mouthwatering one-pot vegan chili. This hearty and flavorful dish is not only easy to make, but it's also packed with nutrients to keep you energized during your camping adventures.
Here's how I make it:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 bell pepper, diced
- 1 zucchini, diced
- 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 cup of vegetable broth
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet or Dutch oven over the campfire.
2. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until they become fragrant and translucent.
3. Add the bell pepper and zucchini, and cook until they start to soften.
4. Add the black beans, kidney beans, diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
5. Cover the skillet or Dutch oven with a lid and let the chili simmer over the campfire for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6. Remove from the heat and let it cool slightly before serving.
This one-pot vegan chili is not only delicious, but it's also a great option for camping because it requires minimal preparation and cleanup. Plus, it's packed with protein and fiber from the beans, and the vegetables add a nice crunch and freshness to the dish.
If you're looking to add some extra flavor and texture, you can top your chili with some diced avocado, fresh cilantro, or a squeeze of lime juice. And if you're not following a vegan diet, you can also sprinkle some shredded cheese on top.
So, the next time you're planning a camping trip, make sure to give this one-pot vegan chili a try. It's the perfect meal to enjoy around the campfire, and it's sure to impress your fellow campers with its delicious taste and simplicity. Happy camping and happy cooking!
