I went camping this weekend and changed a recipe that a friend made for us
before I became a vegetarian. She calls it foil dinners. It really is a
tasty treat and can be modified to include any vegetable you want.
1 onion sliced
1 bell pepper sliced
1 zuchini sliced
3 or 4 carrots sliced
6 small red potatoes cubed (large)
any seasoning you like ( I like cayenne and black pepper)
Mix the falafel per instructions. Cut all vegetables.
When falafel is ready, get a piece of foil big enough to fit all the
ingredients. (You'll know how big after you do your first one!) Put
shiny side in. (I don't know why, just do it!)
Put some falafel mix in the middle, shape like an oblong pattie. Put some
of each vegetable on top, watch for carrots that like to roll off. :-)
Sprinkle lots of seasoning.
Now the tricky part, closing the foil. You make a boat and take the long
sides, put them together and roll a couple of times (as many as you can). You
then take the ends and roll them upwards as far as you can. I take
another piece of foil and wrap it again the same way in the same direction.
You want to do it in such a way that no juice or steam can escape.
Do this until you are out of food. I made six good sized dinners with
falafel and 2 with just vegetables. I probably used between 1.5 and 2 cups
of falafel mix.
Put foil dinners on coals, making sure there are no flames. After about
15 minutes, you can flip the dinners. When you start to smell the food, it
probably is done. You really need to just make sure the vegetables are cooked.
You can check a dinner at any time and just close it back up if it's not
This is a really great dinner. Serve with bread if you have it. I like to
put picante sauce on mine.
