#16 Camping Food

I went camping this weekend with a fun group of friends. I cooked dinner ahead of time so we would only have to reheat. I made Tempeh Sloppy Joes from The Vegan Table by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. This is one of my favorites from the cookbook. It's always a hit- even my meat eating friends like it! I followed her suggestion and added white beans to bulk it up and make it a little heartier. It was delicious as always.

Before I gave up dairy I was a huge fan of KFC cole slaw. After trying a couple recipes this one is my favorite! It's sweet, crunchy and tastes good for days! I found the recipe on and adjusted it to make it vegan. It's always a crowd pleaser!

  • 4 1/2 teaspoons tarragon vinegar
  • 6 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 1/2 cups Veganaise
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 heads cabbage


    1. Mix oil, onions and sugar.
    2. Add tarragon vinegar.
    3. Fold in Vegenaise.
    4. Pour over grated carrots and cabbage.
    5. Fold in well.
    6. Refrigerate in an air-tight covered dish.

    After cooking, I put the sloppy joe filling in a jar and heated it up when we were ready for dinner. I topped each with some pickle and served it with the cole slaw (which stayed well in the cooler).
