i've been going camping almost every year of my life, but am getting SICK of the same old veggie dogs over the fire, baked beans, etc.  does anyone know any fabulous vegetarian camping recipes, or have ideas?
thanks!

I always like to bake potatoes in the fire. Just wrap in foil & put in a cast iron pan over the fire  or place the right in the coals.  Rosted veggies are always good too, just cut in 1 inch cubes & sprinkle with any proces you like & a bit of olive oil. Wrap in foil & rost as you would the potatoes. 
Garlic is good, cut the point end off, sprinkle with a bit of rosemary, oregano pretty much any green herb & a bit of sea salt & fresh raked pepper, wrap in foil & roat away. Its great spread on bread.   =)

Do you have one of those Hobo Pie maKers,the cast iron ones??   You butter or use pam on the bread put it in the pie iron & add your filling... it's great with jam, or cheese & veggies.

You can get dry falafel mix at the grocery store, which you just mix with water and fry up. Really easy, light to carry (if, like me, you have to portage all your food in a backpack, this is important!), tasty, and it has protein value.

Pasta, rice, instant mashed potatoes, couscous... What else? There are some amazing freeze-dried veggie products out there --- check out camping-equipment stores and your local health food store --- that work great in soups and stews, or cooked right in along with rice.

There's a meat substitute called TVP, or texturized vegetable protein, which hikers and campers used before freeze dried meat was available; it looks kind of like dog kibble when it's dry, but I'm told you can cook all kinds of good stuff with it, and it's a meat-free source of protein. (I picked up this tidbit of knowledge when my mother cleaned out the pantry and found a big jar of TVP which predated me! My parents used to lead canoe trips professionally, before I was born...)

Portabello mushrooms and red onions cut into chunks...drizzled in italian dressing...and grilled right on the fire!!!
SOOOOO GOOD!!!  You HAVE to get one of those bbq veggie "baskets" on a long handle, they are perfect!

This is something that you can prepare before you go and leave in a plastic baggie to marinate in a cooler while you are camping...You could add firm tofu chunks too (which i have never done but it could be good too)

I have done pasta and sauce over the fire too...your best bet would be to also pick up a light-Weight "grill grate" (looks like a cookie cooling rack) from the baking section of a cooking store to place over the fire for pots..(at least that what i did and it worked really well)

OH and Pitas!  you can never go wrong with pita's!  you could make hummus ahead of time and put it in a cooler and stuff that into the pitas.
If you "do" eggs....you could even use them to put the eggs into to make a sandwich in the mornings
Pita's hold up really well in foil in backpacks if you go hiking too

Im a campin' Veg' too and also get really sick of the same ol things all the time so im lovin this thread

these are some seriously fabulous ideas.  i do potatoes in the fire, but i don't know why i never thought to extend it to other vegetables.  ooh, i did find another good one on a cooking show -  vidalia onions quartered (but not all the way through to the bottom), then a chunk of margarine/butter and a bouillon cube in the space in the middle of the onion.  wrap in foil, put on grill/in fire, and cook until tender.  you have to eat these things in a freakin' bowl, but they are absolutely divine.

I often go through regular cookbooks/non-vegetarian, to see if there are ways that I can adapt the recipes for veggie eating - I've been veg for 10 + years and I'm not starving! Wink My husband is a cook/chef so he's gotten really good at adapting recipes as well. It isn't hard once you start thinking about it.
A lot of websites also have camping recipes... I know Family Fun does something on it about every summer - they even had some really good "create your own mixes"...
best of luck, let us know what you come up with!

My dad and I used to make pancakes when we camped and eat them with peanut butter instead of syrup.  Yummy and filing, but you need a lot of water to wash down each mouthful.  I was a kid, so pancakes in the woods was a huge treat.  Since then my most elaborate veggie outdoor eating has been stir-fries and omelets (you can pack in broken eggs in a water bottle).

Corn and sweet potatoes roasted over the fire are both great, too.  And I once managed to make a pretzel-like bread by wrapping the dough (flour, water and salt -- no yeast, but a little baking soda, I think) around a stick and "baking" it over the fire, rotating it slowly until done.  Weird but tasty, and in the middle of a six-week trip not a bad attempt at homemade bread.
