Think BBQ

by Kathy Mac

When water/waste water tank capacity is a concern, consider meals that BBQ and take no pans to clean.
I wrap up the veggies & potatoes/bread/precooked or frozen rice in foil packs with a bit of butter/seasoning, and they cook on the grill alongside the fish or meat.

It's just the plates & silverware then to wash.

Hobo Packets = Healthy Fast Food
by: sail4free

One of our favorite ways to cook while conserving water is hobo packets. We use a pasta plate to provide the round shape and put in a ring of veggies around the perimeter (onions, carrots, peppers, squash, radishes, cabbage -- just about anything steams wonderfully. Then we put 1/3 cup of uncooked rice and 1/2 cup of water in the middle. Carefully lay a single serving of salmon (skin side down) over the rice and season generously.
Then it's a matter of folding the edges and rolling/folding the ends to seal the steam inside.
Our grill preheats to 600F and we then turn it to "low" where it maintains approx. 400F. At this temp, 18 minutes is the magic number. If you use heavy duty foil, you can eat the cooked food right off the foil -- using your dish (which remains clean) to hold it . . . leaving only a fork (per serving) to wash. We typically use some light salt soy sauce for added flavor. These always turn out wonderfully = good looking food which is good for ya'.
