Cooking when you’re on a road-trip, with limited resources, can become quite tricky very quickly: with only a small camping stove, the little gas cooker and one or two pots, you have to get creative! And when it’s that hot outside, you mostly want to eat something fresh.
With the space you have in your campervan, it is important to pick your food well so that you can prepare quick and easy tasty meals!
