Introducing Foodie Fridays

Foodie Fridays are all about great food, shared around a campfire with good company. We share with you some of our own recipes as well as some favourites that we think will work well on a campfire.

One pan meals are ideal for camping, who wants to spend time washing up?! We love this recipe from Good Food Magazine (March 2006).


2 lamb steaks, approx 140g/5oz each, or 4 lamb chops trimmed of excess fat
1-2 tsp harissa paste
1 tbsp olive oil
handful dried fruit and nuts
85g couscous
400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
100ml/3½ fl oz hot chicken stock or lamb stock (from a cube is fine)
handful mint leaves, torn

Rub the lamb with half the harissa paste. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the lamb for 3 mins on each side for medium-rare, or a little longer for well-done. Lift the meat out of the pan and tip in the remaining harissa, the dried fruit and nuts, couscous and chickpeas, then stir to coat in the paste. Take the pan off the heat and pour in the stock. Stir briefly, return the lamb to the pan and cover with a lid or tightly-fitting foil for 10 mins until the couscous has absorbed all the liquid.

Fluff up the couscous with a fork, season to taste and fold the mint leaves through to serve.
