  1. I love love love these ideas! My best friend is vegan and sometimes it can be very difficult to find not just easy but also quick meals to carry on the rode! But these dishes were not only easy but also delicious!
    Thank you for sharing xx

  2. I loved ur first post about vegan campingfood this one is even better. So happy to try this stuff out!

  3. These ideas are wonderful! Thank you!

  4. Can’t wait to try at least 87% of these recipes!!

  5. Angel Chambers says:

    These recipes all look delicious. I am wondering if you know how much canned coconut milk would be substituted for the coconut powder in the Coconut and red lentil stew with kale? I want to try it out at home with the ingredients that I have on hand.

    1. To be honest, I’m not sure since we haven’t tried it. We’ve gotten that question a few times so we might need to go back and test it with the canned coconut milk. My best guess would be ~1/2 can.

  6. We are family of vegan and none vegans. I’m very excited to try some of these recipes on our up coming camping trip!

  7. These are great!! I’m on the search for plant based meals that my husband might actually like- added quite a few of these recipes to the list we’ll be trying over the next couple of weeks!
