Camp Recipe: Quinoa & Summer Vegetable Stir Fry Foil Packet

This time of year I really can’t get enough freshly harvested squash and zucchini… throw in a little red hot chili peppers and it’s a trio that I can’t say no to. When we were prepping our camping menu for our trip to Standing Stone State Park last weekend (more on that later) I decided to try some of my favorite veggies, a few spices and a pile of nutty flavored quinoa in a foil packet to see how it would work as a camp recipe.

The result? Delicious. Try this out as either a vegetarian camp recipe or a side dish on your next outing. It’s packed with the flavors of the season and nutrients to keep your energy high as you hike, boat or simply lounge by the campfire.

Camp Recipe: Quinoa & Summer Vegetable Stir Fry Foil Packet

Ingredients

  • 3/4 C. Quinoa, cooked
  • 1 Zucchini, chopped
  • 1 Squash, chopped
  • 2 Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Red Hot Chili Pepper, sliced (_if you like it spicy, keep the seeds otherwise discard_)
  • 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 - 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste

Instructions

  1. Make a large double-layer of foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray to keep things from sticking.
  2. In a bowl, combine zucchini, squash, mushrooms and red hot chili pepper. Drizzle olive oil over vegetables and stir so all are coated.
  3. Place the cooked quinoa on the foil.
  4. Layer vegetables on top of quinoa. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper until well coated.
  5. Wrap and seal the aluminum foil. Leave room in the packet to allow air to flow through as it cooks.
  6. Cook on hot coals for 10 minutes, flip about half-way through.
  7. Open with caution – there will be lots of steam.
  8. Dish out and enjoy!
