Campers Tinfoil Green Beans Campfire Cooking
It’s pretty easy to overlook getting enough vegetables in ones diet while camping. There are so many recipes for hot dogs, meat kabobs, baked potatoes, and other starchy dishes. So I’m making a greater effort to transition some of my go-to vegetable recipes from stove top or oven style to campfire fun. Green beans have often been a cornerstone of my cooking. I love them fresh and crisp with a little bit of citrus. But only now am I transitioning my frying pan recipe to tinfoil packets.
Campers Tinfoil Green Beans Recipe
- Green beans
- 1 fresh lemon
- Olive oil
- Corse ground pepper
Place green beans on tinfoil. Grind corse pepper on green beans. Don’t hold back, I like lots of freshly ground corse pepper. Sprinkle salt over green beans. Drizzle olive oil over the green beans. Cut two thin slices of lemon and place on top of beans. Fold up into a foil packet. Place in camp fire. As per usual, make sure to check regularly to track the progress of the beans. I like them al dante but even that can take a while depending on the heat of the fire. My last pack was done in about 15 minutes.
Once cooked through, unwrap and enjoy!
