Diva Tasting: Campfire Curry Veggies…

Campfire Curried Vegetables


1 Head Cauliflower, Broken Into Florets

1 (15 Ounce) Can Chickpeas, Drained

5 Red Potatoes, Cut Into Cubes

1 Zucchini, Chopped

1 Yellow Squash, Chopped

1 Sweet Onion, Chopped

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil, Or As Needed

¼ Cup Curry Powder, Or To Taste

Salt And Ground Black Pepper To Taste

Cup Vegetable Broth, Or As Needed (Optional)


Step 1 Build a campfire and allow the fire to burn until it has accumulated a bed of coals. Rake the coals into a flat bed on one side of the fire. Alternatively, preheat an outdoor grill.

Step 2 Combine cauliflower, chickpeas, potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, and onion in large bowl.

Step 3 Cut two 2-foot sections of aluminum foil and place one on top of the other. Fold the edges together so the 2 pieces will stay together. Drizzle olive oil in the middle of the foil, leaving 4 to 5 inches on each side for folding. Place a few handfuls of the cauliflower mixture over the olive oil; season with curry powder, salt, and pepper. Spoon some vegetable broth on top. Repeat with more foil and remaining cauliflower mixture.

Step 4 Pull the 2 longer sides of each foil packet together over the cauliflower mixture and fold over several times until you almost reach the center. Flatten down the sides and roll them up toward the center.

Step 5 Place the packets to the side of the campfire or grill using long tongs. Cook until cauliflower mixture feels tender when you press the packets with the tongs, 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 6 Remove packets from fire or grill and let cool, about 5 minutes. Open from the top, leaving the rolled-up sides as-is, to create a bowl. Serves 5

Variation: You can also mix all of this and place in a 9×13in disposable aluminum pan and cover with foil and cook the same way in a 450 degree oven for 35 minutes.
