Outdoor Survival Meal: Potato & Veggie Foil Packets
When it comes to outdoor survival, your food supply is extremely important. Because you won’t always have access to meat, it’s crucial to have a back-up plan. An all-veggie meal is a great solution if you’re trying to ration your supply of meat, and it’s also packed with essential nutrients. These potato and veggie foil packets take minimal effort – just chop up your veggies, sprinkle on some seasoning, and heat them over an open flame. Best of all, most of these ingredients are relatively inexpensive, so it’s a great go-to meal that is both hearty and delicious.
What you’ll need for your outdoor survival meal:
- 7-8 small red potatoes
- 2 ears corn, shucked and cut into 2-3 pieces
- 1 small white onion, chopped
- 1 cup baby carrots
- 1 green bell pepper, sliced
- 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp. steak seasoning
- pinch of salt and pepper
