Vegan Campfire Stew

RECIPE – Vegan Campfire Stew
The Vegetarian Librarian

4 vegan Italian sausages
4 potatoes
2 cups green beans
3 carrots
3 portabella mushrooms
1 green pepper
4 cloves of garlic
1 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes

Create a campfire or heat up your grill. Or preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Make a four large foil packets. Chop potatoes, mushrooms, green pepper into 1″ chunks. Cut 1/2″ slices of carrots and sausages. Remove ends of beans. Peel and chop garlic into large pieces. Drain tomatoes. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper. Divide evenly among the foil packets and seal them tightly. Cook on a grate over a campfire or on a grill for about 30 minutes (until potatoes are soft enough to eat). If you’re staying inside, they’ll take about 50 minutes in the oven.

Sausages: You can use store bought or make your own. We used this recipe from Everyday Dish TV… now a staple in our kitchen.

The video was filmed in January 2010 on a frigid 10°F evening in Humboldt Park, Chicago. Our friends Jessi and Patrick were screening their video installment, proximity: the closeness of apartness, on a giant screen through the front windows of their apartment. We decided to turn the screening into a camping outing/bbq. Watch as our cheeks get red and our fingers go numb.
