If you’re camping locally this summer, you need quick, convenient meals you can fix before you break out the s’mores. This recipe is a twist on traditional campfire veggies thanks to the addition of in-season stone fruit and fresh herbs. Pre-prep these veggies before you pack the car up and have a veggie meal ready in under 40 minutes once you set up camp. A safe, and responsible campfire makes these veggies taste even better, we swear. Make sure there isn’t a fire ban where you’re camping, and refer to these tips about having a safe campfire to keep you, your friends, family and community safe.

- 1 pint cherry tomatoes

- 1 lemon, juiced
- 3 fresh apricots or plums (or the freshest stone fruit you can find)

Assemble Before Camping:

Not building a campfire? You can easily cook these veggies on an outside grill (same directions) or even sauté them on a pan over a camping stove.
