Even though you are travelling in a campervan, it doesn´t mean you cannot make your own meals throughout the day. In fact it is a great time to try out some new recipes. When travelling in Norway, what better way to eat dinner than with a view of a waterfall or a massive mountain?
In this blogpost we have nine quick and good meals you can make during your campervan vacation in Norway.
This cheesy beantortilla is a perfect meal as either breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Ingredients (2-3 persons):
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 can kidneybeans, drained
- around 1 liter water
- 1 pack tacospice (Norwegian: ”Tacokrydder”)
- 4 small/medium tortilla wraps
- 1 avocado
- 1 lime
Beanfill: Chop tomatoes and onions, and saute in a frying pan for about 7 minutes.
Add kidneybeans, 0,5-1 liter water and ”tacospice”. Cook on midle temperature to a rich stir.
Smash avocado with a fork in a pot and sprinkle it with some lime, pepper and salt.
Take the contents in the frying pan over in a bowl, and wipe the frying pan clean.
Take ¼ of the avocado mix and some spoons of beanfill on the one half of the tortilla wrap and top it with cheese. Then wrap the other half over.
Put the wrap on the dry frying pan over the hob and fry until it smokes a little. Turn around the wrap.
Repeat the process with the rest of the tortilla wraps and beanfill.
