5 Hearty Soups and Stews to Warm Your Heart at Camp


There’s nothing cozier than a hearty soup or stew around the campfire this time of year! We love delicious recipes and love them even more if they’re easy too. Stews and soups take minimal effort to prepare either cooked over the open flame of a campfire or in the slow cooker all afternoon. Yum!


Even if you aren’t one to brave the cold of winter camping, these recipes will keep the camp vibes going in your home until next spring. Which will you try first?


Pork Campfire Stew

Campfire Sausage and Potato Soup

We absolutely love slow cooker meals! They are super cozy and so easy to whip together while out camping. This campfire sausage and potato soup is just as yummy as the rest, flavoured with oregano and cumin.
