Australia offers spectacular sights for caravanning, but cooking while caravanning is a challenge for many people. Did you know that you don’t have to compromise on the quality of food to enjoy the freedom of adventure? Here are five cooking tips for your next Australian caravanning adventure.
1. Avoid certain foods
Unless you are planning to cook them right away, avoid foods that are likely to develop moulds or fungus. Opt for long-life milk over fresh milk and avoid fresh herbs and vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower, since cleaning and cutting them can be a bit of a hassle.
2. Get the best deals on groceries
The local, in-season farmers market is the best place to get fresh meats, veggies, and fruits. You can get the best deals of a massive amount of produce for a great price from these little make-shift stalls. This is an excellent way to promote local businesses and importantly, enjoy fresh food while caravanning.
3. Don’t forget your cooking essentials
Remember to pack oils, spices, herbs, and seasonings – chilli, soy sauce, olive oil, coriander powder, cumin, paprika, mixed dried herbs, pepper, and salt. To make your meals more exciting, consider packing your spreads and condiments – jams, honey, mayo, mustard, barbecue sauce, and ketchup.
Don’t forget your grained products as they come in handy for most recipes – cereals, oats, barley, rice, and pasta. Jarred foods are important in adding bulk to your meals – canned fish, tomato paste, coconut milk, canned soup, black-eyed peas, kidney beans, and chickpeas.
4. Keep your meals simple
One of the golden practices for caravanning is opting for versatile meals, like an egg and bacon bun. Barbecued sausages with fresh veggies is another winning combination to keep your energy levels high throughout the day.
5. Use leftovers
Don’t worry if there are leftovers from your sumptuous meals. Instead of disposing of them, you can use them in cooking your next meal. This can be a great way to save money, and make your travel adventure less stressful.
