Loaded Campfire Cauliflower Camping Recipe

I have been waiting for months to share this recipe with you!  Last summer this Loaded Campfire Cauliflower was a staple in our camping meals.  By the time I got a chance to photograph it for the blog, winter had set in so I’ve been saving it until now!  So, TA DA!!  Here it is, one of my absolute favorite camping recipes that you are sure to LOVE…

I love camping meals that are easy to prepare and make ahead of time and this one is no exception.  Perfect for preparing and then packing on your next trip.

Have I mentioned how delicious this Loaded Campfire Cauliflower is yet?!  So good!

Following a ketogenic lifestyle, I have modified many of my favorite recipes to be low carb.  By simply swapping cauliflower for potatoes in this Loaded Campfire Potatoes recipe I have created a yummy keto meal that is perfect for camping.  Not a fan of cauliflower?  Try subbing diced celery root or  jicama (both low carb).  Just be sure to boil them before cooking over the campfire or bar-b-cue.  I like to steam the cauliflower first at home before preparing and packaging this recipe for camping.  It’s not necessary but it makes cooking time faster in the long run.
