well I was going to say hotdogs, but then you said no meat.
"They don't eat no meat?"
"Oh. Oh, that's okay. I make LAMB"
We are having a campfire at a local nature center for my daughter's 7th birthday and I need ideas for food. The problem is it cannot be meat because of dietary restrictions.
We are going to do baked potatoes, pumpkin soup, hot cider with alcohol for the adults, but we need other things that are easy to prepare. I need some veggie ideas (preferably in season, so corn is out) that will make this a decent meal.
can you marinate cubes of veges on kebab sticks and cook them? if you can put a pan on the embers, you could do fritata? some form of vege patty made into sausage shapes? mozarella on sticks? maybe even google campfire vegetarian recipes to get some ideas.
i jus remembered you should be able to get chestnuts now to roast on the fire!!!

Seaweed, chestnuts are an excellent idea, and we can do veggie kebabs as well. There are going to be a lot of people so I want the food to be easy and pre-prepared.
Dr Bork Bork, everyone eats meat, but because I am serving a dairy cake (frosting will be from grass-fed butter), I cannot serve meat at the same meal. I wish I could nix the frosting, but the cakes I make are quite elaborate and they require frosting. No one there is primal, but I'd really like to cater one meal for others where everything is primal (except the cake).
Thanks for the ideas.
Is the no-meat to keep it kosher? IIRC, fish is ok to eat with dairy, right? How about some nice salmon on a fire grill, or sardines? Either is nice :-D
i use deodourised coconut oil instead of butter in cakes i have to make for dairy free ppl. could you make the frosting with that instead so as you can have meat?
Also a lot of veggies can be cooked by just wrapping them in foil and tossing them in the coals (burying them helps). Peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, beets, etc
@seaweed, what is deodourised coconut oil? Never heard of it. The only substitute I can use for butter in the cake frosting is crisco, and not only do I not want to use that crap, I hate the taste.
@Spoughy, yes the no meat is to keep it kosher because I am sesrving a dairy frosting on the cake. Fish is an excellent idea. We are just feeding a lot of people and it can get expensive. Got to go to Costco and see what kosher fish they have.
@Noctiluca, we will definitely cook veggies in foil packs in the fire. Do you season them with anything?
Dr. BB, lard can't be used because it comes from a pig, and pig is not kosher.
Thanks for all the ideas! Will report back with final menu.
