Looking for vegetarian/vegan meals while camping!
I'm trying to plan out my meals for a 5-day camping trip over Memorial Day Weekend. I haven't done any meal planning of this kind since I've become a vegetarian and I'll have some who prefers to eat vegan with me on the trip. We'll have a charcoal bbq, dutch oven, propane griddle, and a campfire to cook our meals. Any suggestions for wholesome, delicious, adventure-friendly breakfasts, lunches, or dinners?!

by Claudia Axcell and Diana Cooke and Vikki Kath and Bob Kinmont. I think everything in there meets your needs. Many of the recipes entail making up a dry mix, then finishing at the site with basics and fresh ingredients. It's good for inspiration!
If you bring little tupperware containers, you could take it with crackers on hikes.
Also these vegan granola bars would be great for breakfast or on a hike https://food52.com/recipes/22107-five-minute-no-bake-vegan-granola-bars
This made me think of muhammara, also a substantial vegan spread. This is a very good recipe: http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1017492-muhammara-red-pepper-and-walnut-spread
Thank you too dinner at ten for the muhammara link, I have never heard of it before! Do you know where I could buy pomegranate molasses?
Either way, I bet socca would be really great made in a skillet over a fire or grill. There's a good recipe here (http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2009/06/socca-enfin/), but instead of broiling as in the recipe, do the whole thing over a hot flame, flipping the socca to cook both sides (this is how I do it, often on an electric skillet on my porch in the summer). Great with a salad, if you'll have a cooler, or some sturdier vegetable if not.
Tacos are pretty easy to do while camping, as are simple pasta dishes.
When I'm backpacking, I'm very very fond of ramen for dinner (the packaged but not instant kind). You can spiff it up with tofu (dried or not), mushrooms (same), green onions, etc.
For lunch, I like to bring the very dense Northern European style of sliced rye/multigrain bread (such as Mestermacher makes). It doesn't stale very fast, is sturdy and flavorful, and tastes good with lots of toppings such as avocado, fresh goat cheese, and baba ghanouj. I also like tamari almonds as a snack/lunch supplement for hiking.
You are correct! We'll have cars on our site, so heavy foods aren't an issue.
I haven't heard of socca before, but this looks amazing! We'll definitely track down some chickpea flour to bring with us! I love the rest of your suggestions as well. I hadn't considered tacos or Mestermacher, but those will certainly be incorporated in our meal planning!
