Yes, I know that vegetable dishes are not everyone’s favorite dish, whether one is camping or not. But I have found that this dish is a favorite if to the pickiest camper. There are many reasons why this recipe is a camping staple for me. One, it is easy. Two, it is flexible and what I mean by that is I am not limited by the vegetable or nuts. This flexibility allows me to use some of the bits I may have in the camp kitchen without sacrificing taste or the dish looking like an assortment of leftovers. Finally, the last reason this recipe is always on the camping menu is the fact that I can make it and place it on the coals to cook without any more attention. This allows me to move on to the other dishes in the meal that may require more attention.
