5 Easy Vegan Breakfast Recipes for Camping
Vegan camping breakfasts are the epitome of breakfast freedom! Who needs a stuffy kitchen when you can whip up morning magic in the great outdoors? It's like a breakfast adventure, with a side of fresh air and a sprinkle of camping charm. So, grab your camping gear, embrace the freedom of the wild, and let Overherd guide you on a breakfast journey that will make your taste buds dance with delight.
Camping without pancakes? Unthinkable! It's a breakfast bonanza that elevates the camping experience to delicious new heights.
Before your trip, mix 100g flour, 15g Overherd oat milk powder, ½ tsp baking powder, and a pinch of salt, and store in an airtight container. When you are ready for PANCAKES (we’re always ready btw…) combine the mix with 100ml of water and give it a good mix with a fork. Cook the batter in a non-stick pan and voila! Top with maple syrup, peanut butter, jam, or fresh fruit. Camping bliss has never tasted so scrumptious!
2) EGGCELLENT VEGAN SCRAMBLE
Vegan scramble is a tantalising treat that will fuel your camping adventures with plant-powered goodness. Making this delectable dish is as easy as pitching a tent (maybe one of those pop-up tents…). So, grab your pan and let's scramble.
To cook, use either a block of tofu or your favourite vegan egg substitute like Scrambled OGGS or Follow Your Heart VeganEgg. Heat up a pan with a splash of oil, and sauté 2 medium-sized diced potatoes and 1 diced onion until tender. Pour in the tofu or vegan egg substitute (equivalent to 4 servings), adding spices of your choosing (we used ½ teaspoon of paprika, ½ teaspoon of turmeric, and ½ teaspoon of cumin) and cook until it reaches the desired consistency. Top with diced tomatoes, fresh herbs, or a sprinkle of nutritional yeast for extra flavour. And voila, A hearty and flavourful breakfast to fuel your outdoor adventures!
3) FRUIT AND CEREAL
For those lazy mornings, try a bowl of simplicity and fruity goodness! Pack a box of your favourite shop-bought cereal or better yet, unleash your inner granola guru and bring along a batch of homemade goodness.
Grab your cereal or homemade granola and get ready to create a breakfast masterpiece. Toss in some sliced bananas, sprinkle on a handful of fresh berries and crown it all with a generous pour of Overherd oat milk. It's a symphony of flavours that will have your taste buds going.
4) PB & J (that’s peanut butter and jam in case you didn’t know…)
This camping classic gets a vegan twist that will have you reminiscing about childhood picnics. Spread your favourite vegan peanut butter on one slice of bread and top it off with a generous slather of fruity jam. For an extra level of indulgence, lightly grill the sandwich on a camping stove or griddle until the bread reaches toasty golden perfection and the peanut butter gets slightly melty… is that even a word?
5) PORRIDGE – because there’s no such thing as too much oats
Camping-friendly oats are like the chameleons of breakfast—versatile, convenient, and ready to transform into a morning masterpiece. They're your trusty sidekick, adapting to your every whim and the ingredients you have on hand.
To bring these oats to life, grab a small pot and let the camp stove work its magic. Combine equal parts porridge oats with Overherd oat milk (we recommend 1 cup of each), with a teaspoon of your favourite sweetener or golden syrup.
But wait, we're not done yet! It's time to sprinkle in your chosen toppings, like a culinary artist adding strokes of flavour to the canvas. A handful of nuts for that satisfying crunch, a sprinkle of seeds for a burst of nutrition, a handful of raisins for a touch of sweetness, and let's not forget the crown jewel—fresh fruit to add a vibrant burst of colour and natural sweetness.
While delicious food isn’t a requirement for a great camping trip, it can certainly add to the experience. Thanks to these simple breakfast options, you’ll have plenty to choose from!
