Camping Weekend :)

Curried Chickpea Salad sandwiches

3 cups cooked chickpeas
3 stalks thinly sliced celery
1 diced red pepper
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp curry powder
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
3 cloves minced garlic
salt and pepper
juice from 1/2 lemon

*In a large bowl, mash together the chickpeas and mayo.
*Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
*Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Cream Cheese and Bean Spread  for fist-pump vegetable wraps

1 cup of softened cream cheese
1 cup of pinto beans
1/2 head of roasted garlic cloves
salt and pepper
1 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano

*In a food processor, pulse together all ingredients until smooth
*Spread on a wrap and top with veggies (we used spinach, cucumber, red onion, carrots, and red pepper)

Grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches.  We used these awesome double toasters that I picked up at Canadian Tire to make these AWESOME sandwiches and the vegetable and cheese ones that are pictured next.  Best purchase I have made in a long time!

These black bean burgers are one of our favourite meals so when I had to pick a burger to bring along this was a no brainer.  We paired with a baked potato made in the fire and a green salad for a super easy and delicious camping meal.

  1. This made me tummy grumble! I love camping food!!! Love the grilled cheese with veggies... *mouth waters*. I've wondered about those toasters when I've seen them. Good to know. Your curried chickpea salad looks yummy, too. :)
