Just thought I’d share with you a meal that is ideal for when you are out in the campervan. Not only is it really easy, tasty and flexible, it’s healthy too! It’s called the Power Bowl (sometimes the Buddha Bowl) and it is a perfectly balanced meal that you assemble from a wide range of ingredients.
You will need a pasta-style bowl as you’ll want something big enough to hold your whole meal (less washing-up, yay!) and you can include anything you want really, but there is a general template to follow…
This is one of those recipes that is so tasty that you’ll need to make extra as everyone will want seconds. You can make a meaty and a veggie version and I encourage you to play with the spice combos to find your personal, perfect taco. If you want to keep it super simple, just buy a readymade taco spice mix in a packet and use that instead.
When I worked and lived on a charter yacht in Barcelona harbour many years ago, I fell in love with everything Spanish, including the cuisine. So when I got the chance to do a ‘Taste of Spain’ cookery course at Vaughan’s Cookery School, I jumped at the chance and hoped that there would be some ideas I could adapt for campervan recipes. There was – the flavours are a bit different but very tasty…
I have to confess that, after learning about Bannock Bread from the winner of my campervan recipe competition, I am now a little bit obsessed with it and finding out all the ways you can make this simple but tasty, frying pan bread.
Here is the winning recipe from my campervan recipe competition – it’s Bannock Bread.
I have to admit I hadn’t heard of it before but, apparently, Bannock is a simple, flat loaf of bread that can be cooked in a pan and bakes up with a texture similar to a scone or biscuit, with a fluffy center that is slightly crumbly. It is wonderful for breakfast spread with some jam or served with a main meal alongside your stew or main dish.
Hi Everyone. I am running a little competition and the winner gets the latest edition of ‘Campervan’ magazine.

Sea bass is one of my favourite fish but it is quite expensive so we don’t have it often. However, I found some on the reduced section in my local supermarket so I jumped on it and brought it home for lunch. I decided to cook it up with some smashed potatoes and some ‘silky’ veg: pan-fried vegetables in a creamy sauce. Let me tell you more…
