If you’re camping locally this summer, you need quick, convenient meals you can fix before you break out the s’mores. Chef Morgan’s 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 to keep you, your friends, family and community safe.


  • 1 red onion, large dice
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 8 oz mushrooms, cut in half
  • 1 yellow pepper, cut into 1 inch squares
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 fresh apricots or plums (or the freshest stone fruit you can find)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sprigs of rosemary
  • A bunch of fresh sage
  • Aluminum foil, as needed


  1. Assemble Before Camping:

    1. Combine all veggies, and stone fruit in foil and drizzle with salt, pepper, oil and lemon.
    2. Fold foil into a tight package. Wrap with another layer of  foil.
    3. Store in large plastic bags.
  2. Cook During Campfire:

    1. Cook over top of fire or in the coals for 40 minutes or until veggies are tender. Flip often.

    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.
