People are often surprised when I tell them that there’s more to cooking in a campervan than just BBQs or beans and sausages!
Don’t get me wrong we all love a BBQ. What could be better than setting up camp, lighting the coals and sitting back with a glass of wine or Somerset cider.
We highly recommend The Butchers Block for locally sourced meat. Please let us know if you want a BBQ pack and we’ll have it ready in the fridge for when you pick up your hire campervan.
If you want to test your culinary skills, you’ll find all our vans come fully equipped with everything you need to whip up a feast.
Here are few of our favourites.
1. Start your day right with tasty Overnight Oats for breakfast
What better way to start the day than with a healthy, fruity breakfast and overnight oats are a doddle to prepare the night before. No cooking required!
Two tablespoons Dorset Cereals Simply Oats
Handful of cashews
Spoon of Dorset Cereals Honey Granola
Two tablespoons Yeo Valley Greek Yoghurt
Half a banana
Spoon oats into bottom of a glass, cover with milk. Layer on slices of banana, top with yoghurt, add granola and top with slices of strawberries for a tasty topping. Cover and leave in fridge overnight. Wake up to delicious breakfast.
2. Spicy salad for lunch with a Cajun Chicken Salad for two
Spicy chicken salad in under 20 minutes? Yes please.
To season the chicken you will need:
Dessert spoon paprika
Dessert spoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Sliced red onion
1 Baby gem lettuce, leaves kept whole
1 cucumber sliced
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
For the Dressing mix
1 teaspoon of the seasoning
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Yeo Valley no fat greek yogurt
To make, roll the chicken in the seasoning (saving a spoon for the dressing) fry in a spoon of olive oil on a low heat for four minutes each side until browned. When cooked leave to rest for few minutes. Slice the chicken into strips and lay out on the salad on a bed of romain lettuce leaves. Arrange the remaining salad and pour over the dressing.
For a take away lunch, simply wrap the contents into soft tortillas and enjoy lunch in the sunshine.
