Peanut stew with tofu

This pot is perfect when you want to make something really fast and tasty.

  1. Mix oil, grated ginger and soy for a marinade. Cut tofu into cubes and marinate.
  2. Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package.
  3. Rinse the carrots and shred with a potato peeler. Cut the bell pepper into thin lengths.
  4. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Quickly fry the curry paste in the oil.
  5. Add the coconut milk and lower the heat so the sauce boils. If the curry paste has clumped, use a whisk to dissolve it.
  6. Add the peanut butter in the sauce and whisk. Add water. Sprinkle with sugar. Let simmer for a few minutes. The sauce should not be particularly watery. Should it be, you can fix it with a little cornstarch or wheat flour.
  7. Add the vegetables, simmer. Taste the sauce with salt and pepper.
  8. Heat a frying pan and mill the tofu cubes to give them a surface. Pour in all the marinade and let it simmer. Put tofu in the casserole and serve with the rice.

SWEET POTATO & PEANUT STEW

If you’re looking for something to warm you up on a cold winter’s evening, then this stew is for you!

  1. Heat the oil in a cast iron pot or a pot with thick bottom over medium heat. Add the onion and saute about 5 minutes, until translucent and just starting to brown in spots. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the sweet potato, broth, tomatoes & their juices, peanut butter, chili powder, and salt. Stir well to ensure the peanut butter is thoroughly mixed. Simmer, uncovered, for about 15-20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
  3. Once the sweet potatoes are tender, add the chickpeas and the kale. Stir to combine and heat until the chickpeas have warmed through and the kale has wilted.
  4. Serve with crushed peanuts on top.

Alternatives could be lemongrass or spinach instead of kale and perhaps served with rice. You could also replace the chili powder with a bit of dried ginger and curry to give it a more Thai flavor.

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tbsp)

Sourdough pizza with Trangia

Pizza in the outdoors made with fresh ingrediens. Needs som preperation back home before going out but still a winner. We usually roll out the dough back home and put greaseproof paper in between before going out.

  1. Mix, cover and ferment for 6-8 hours until double size.
  2. Roll out the doe. (Should fit the inside measurement of the pot, that’s upside down)
  3. We usually have tomato sauce, mushrooms, walnuts and chèvre on and then put the pizza inside the “owen” for 15 minutes.
  4. When ready, take it out and add honey and arugula on top before serving.
  • 75g pre-ferment
  • 10g olive oil
  • 130g water
  • 250 g flour
  • 5 g salt

We use a Trangia frying pan with the biggest pot upside down on top. We also have a plate in aluminum foil. Thick as your little finger and rolled as a cinnamon bum before finally wrapped in another layer of aluminium to hold it together. Our fits perfectly inside the pot and the end result is a round plate. One pizza takes 14-15 min if you have full power on and we always take 1 of the bigger gas canisters for this (450g).

Campfire bread twist

These delicious campfire treats are fun and really easy to make.

  3. Choose a stick thick as your thumb and strip off the bark and leaves.
  4. Grab a handful of dough and roll it into a snake-like shape. This won’t need to be very thick, as the dough will swell when cooking.
