Winter vegetable camping soup – cook before you hit the road

Winter vegetable camping soup

Camping soups or stews are always perfect when you are on the road and don’t want to waste time preparing diner after you arrive at your destination.

Normally, soups like this can be prepared in the morning before you pack your equipment and hit the road.

The short recipe is to prepare your meat and vegetables, cook for 15 minutes, and then leave it in the thermal pot which does the job for you during driving.

This type of cooking is very cheap as you don’t use much gas, and also you can stop the car any time for lunch and eat a proper meal.

This recipe is similar to our  Slow Cooked Barbeque Chicken.

Winter vegetable camping soup - Ingridients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Vegetable soup pack
  • 2 potatoes
  • Tomato paste
  • Granulated garlic
  • Oregano leaves
  • Salt & pepper

1. Peel potatoes and cut all veggies into small chunks (we bought ready to use soup pack)

2. Insert chicken breast into a pot, add 1.5 liters of water. 

3. Add all veggies. 

4. Once the soup starts to boil add 2 tablespoons of tomato paste. Next, add salt, pepper, and herbs. 

5. Allow soup to boil undercover for another 10 minutes. Once the temperature rises to the desired level, take the inner pot from the heat source and lock it in the outer thermal pot. 

The meal should be ready after 2 hours, but sometimes it needs more or less time depending on the ingredients.

For us it was a perfect meal. That day we arrived to Calliope (Queensland). It was a cold, winter evening.  We decided to also make a quick campfire garlic bread that went along with the camping soup very well.
