5 Vegan Camping Recipes You’ll Love

Many RVers have adopted a plant-based diet these days.  Taking a healthy vegan lifestyle RV camping is easier than ever before.  There are always the obvious vegan camping food choices including easy plant-based meat options (like Beyond Meat products).  But for plant-based foodies, vegan camp cooking can be creative and fun.  We’ve got 10 vegan camping recipes that everyone will love

Vegan Breakfast Avacado Toast

Start your day with protein-packed avocado toast that’s nutritious and delicious.  These breakfast sandwiches incorporate Just Egg Folded, an amazing bean-based product egg replacer (easy to pack in the RV fridge), avocado and Yves veggie bacon on a bed of spinach and are topped with slices of tomatoes. 

For each vegan toast, you’ll need:

1 Slice of whole grain bread, toasted on both sides 1Just Egg FoldedHalf a ripe avocado mashed 3 slicesYves Veggie Bacon 1 TBSP butter flavoured coconut oil or vegan margarine 1/2 medium tomato sliced Spinach (arugula or fresh basil leaves work well too)

If you can toast your bread over the campfire, you’ll be able to incorporate a lovely, lightly smoked flavour into this breakfast sandwich.  We recommend using a campfire grill basket with an adjustable handle for this.  If you don’t have one of these handy devices in your campfire cooking arsenal, you should get one.    

Melt the coconut oil in a frypan. Use this to cook the Yves veggie bacon until it is almost crispy. Cooking veggie bacon in oil adds to its flavour and texture.  Heat the Just Egg Folded in the frypan along with the bacon. 

While the veggie bacon and Just Egg are cooking, assemble your toast as follows:

Spread the mashed avocado on the toast.   Place the spinach (or other greens) over the mashed avocado. Add the cooked to perfection veggie bacon Place the Just Egg on the bacon Top with sliced tomato  Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Easy Campfire Pizza Pockets

This pie iron pizza pocket recipe is so easy to make.  It’s possibly one of the easiest vegan camping recipes we know of It’s a big hit with kids and adults alike.  You’ll need a pie iron for this recipe.  If you don’t have a pie iron, get one.  Pie irons are so useful for easy, mess free campfire cooking.   It starts with 2 slices of white bread that’s heavily “buttered” on one side. The bread serves as the pizza crust.  You can try using whole grain bread for this, but we’ve found white bread produces the best crust.  

For each campfire pizza pocket you’ll need:

1 campfire pie iron 2 slices of bread 2 tsp vegan margarine orbutter-flavored coconut oil1 tbsppizza sauce 2 tbspvegan mozzarella

Suggested Toppings 

1 tbsp chopped green peppers 1 tbsp choppedblack olivesBits of broccoli  A few slices of  vegan pizza pepperoni1 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes Minced garlic Cooked, crumbledBeyond Meat Italian sausageSpinach leaves Fresh basil

Butter each slice of bread on one side only.  Place one slice on one side one the pie iron. The butter side goes against the iron.  Now spread the pizza sauce evenly around the middle of the bread. Add other toppings as desired.  Remember, you still need to put the other slice of bread over and get the pie iron closed!  Top with vegan Mozzarella and put the remaining slice of bread on top with the butter side out.  Now you’ll need to close the pie iron.  After the pie iron sides are connected and closed, cut off any bread sticking out of the edges with a knife.  

Cook the pizza pocket about 8-12 inches to over hot coals.  You’ll need to cook for about 5-7 minutes per side depending on how close to the fire you were cooking.  You can carefully open it after 5 minutes on one side to ensure the color is golden brown before flipping the pie iron to do the other side.  When both sides are golden brown, it’s ready!

This is a simple but delicious vegan recipe that is absolutely perfect when cooked in grill basket over a campfire.  Don’t let the name fool you:  While the recipe is called “Grilled Portobello Mushrooms”, it actually includes a colorful assortment of vegetables too.

Make the marinade

Whisk all of the marinade ingredients together until they are one beautiful, aromatic marinade.

Pour the marinade over the mushrooms, veggies, allowing it to sink into the mushrooms, especially.

Vegan Not Tuna Melts

Vegan camping recipes don’t get much better than this.  These not tuna melts get their “meat” from chickpeas.  Chickpeas are a superfood that is packed with protein and antioxidants.  Vegan not tuna melts can be baked in a toaster oven or the filling can be adapted for pie iron tuna melts and cooked over the campfire. 


1 canchickpeas, drained + rinsed 2 tablespoons mayo (vegan if wanting to make this 100% vegan) 1 teaspoon whole grain dijon mustard1 teaspoon dried dill1 tablespoon chopped green onionsSalt + pepper 8 Tablespoons grated  dairy-free cheddar (we love theApplewood smoky cheese alternativefor this) 4 slices whole-grain bread

How to make vegan not tuna melts: 

 Set toaster oven temperature for 350 degrees. Drain the chickpeas and place in a bowl.  Mash them with a fork until they are about 3/4 mashed.  You still want them to have texture.   Mix in the mayo until the chickpeas are all covered.  Add the whole grain mustard, dill, chopped greek onions, and salt and pepper Top with grated vegan cheese  Bake in toaster oven until cheese is beautifully melted, and bubbly. Enjoy!
