The Waki Way Camping Recipes

Cooking when camping is trickier than at home what with the limited equipment, refrigeration, hard-to-come-by ingredients (or even bad weather!) it's all too easy to end up with the same dried ready meals or tasteless and terribly unhealthy takeaways - until now! 

To battle the boring we compiled a collection of our favourite recipes that we have enjoyed whilst camping. We even divided them by what cooking equipment you need so whether you have one burner or two, a  full kitchen or just a camp fire - we're sure you'll find something delicious you and your companions will love... 


Check out our Kitchen Kit page for our favourite kitchen and camping products. We also have some Mobile Homesteading recipes for how to pickle and preserve your farm shop or foraged finds! The motor home is home for us all year round after all!

Oven / Dutch Oven camping recipes

All of the recipes on this page require baking so you will need a gas or halogen oven in your camper or caravan, or for the dedicated camper they could be adapted for use with a Dutch oven.


Fire / BBQ camping recipes 

Camping recipes that go hand in hand with the smoky flavours of the camp fire or humble BBQ.


1 Hob Ring/Pot camping recipes 

Camping recipes requiring simply one hob ring/gas burner or pan, suitable for any camper with a Coleman stove or Trangia!


2 Hob Rings/Pots + camping recipes

These are some more complex recipes requiring at least 2 pans/hob rings plus some other utensils, for the better equipped camp kitchen or fellow motor-homers.


No Cook camping & snack recipes 

These recipes require no baking, but may include melting, moulds, & refrigeration. Great camping, hiking, or work snacks, sides, & treats!



How to make the most of what you have, drying, pickles, and preserve recipes. Homesteading is a state of mind, no land ownership required!

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
