Fresh or canned food, or a combination of both?

  1. Thanks for the guacamole recipe, sounds so yummy that tomorrow I am going to go and buy the ingredients to make it! 🙂

  2. Love this. Will have to save this. Now I don’t have to subsist on cheese and bread every single day when funds are low while traveling

    Great for people on the road – I’ve been eating quite poorly on the road in Accra and Kumasi; maybe it’s time to make more of an effort! Thanks, Linda…

  4. For those of us who don’t speak Kiwi, what is mince ( I know capsicum are peppers).

    1. Do you perhaps call it “ground beef”?
      Good question, Spencer 🙂

      1. I checked with my American flatmate, and indeed, mince=ground beef.

  5. Those fritters look tasty. How well would the recipe adapt to a no-wheat diet? Say using rice flour or mashed potatoes. Several of my friends are sensitive to wheat and its by-products.

  6. These are absolutely awesome! My girlfriend and I are about to embark on a low budget road trip, and I was searching the internet for great road trip recipes. These are great, and I think I can make most of them from the comfort of my little cook stove. Is there any way I can pre-make the mince seasoning and travel with it? How long does it keep if left in a cooler? Thanks for the great recipes!

    Thanks everyone for your comments, I’m feeling inspired to write another recipe post… If only I had more recipes! If you have a fantastic recipe for travel, please post it in the forums.

    Charlie: I’ve never tried making the fritters with rice flour, but I tried mashed potatoes once and it worked okay — of course they were quite different, and tended to fall apart a bit, but they were very tasty.

    Travis: you can freeze the mince mix, so that would be the easiest way to take it travelling. When I can, I make a huge potful and divide it into meal-sized portions, which I put into plastic bags or containers and freeze. If you do the same and take it in a cooler, it should be good for a couple of days.

    Oddly, mince is quite expensive here in Spain so I’m experimenting with using lentils, capsicum and chorizo as a substitute (with good results), it’s easy to adapt for vegetarians too. And the guacamole is definitely making an appearance.

  8. Love the Fritters recipe.. yum 🙂
