We were looking for some good camping food… easy to prepare and cook on the road. So we bought a selection of camp food dinners from Campers Pantry.

This time, we taste-test Tuna Mornay.

We added ½ a packet of rice, also from Campers Pantry. This fed both of us, although keep in mind we’re not big eaters.

After adding water to the packet, you let it sit for 20 minutes. We normally bulk it up with vegetables. This time however we just added some pepper.

So how did it taste?




The Taste Test

This is seriously good camping food. Peta doesn’t really like tuna much, yet she loved it as well. The Tuna Mornay had plenty of flavour and the texture was perfect.

Tuna Mornay with rice from Campers Pantry. Definitely food to take camping with you.
The finished product with rice. So good!

We said Vegetarian Pasta was our favourite, but it now has some strong competition!

As for the rice. Well it complemented the Tuna Mornay nicely. Like all Campers Pantry rice, first mouthful you’ll probably think it tastes a little strange. However it quickly grows on you and by the end of the dinner you’re looking for more.




Lessons Learnt

So what did we learn from this?

  • Some Campers Pantry dinners are best left the way they’re presented. We only added pepper and rice, yet it didn’t need any other additives. You could of course add any veggies your heart desires.
  • If you do add extra veggies, cook them separately. We have tried adding them ½ way through the heating process, with mixed results.



Would We Eat It Again?

Most definitely. In fact it scores full marks in our questionable Taste Rating. Actually, we’ve already ordered a few more packets.

This one really was a surprise. While I love tuna, Peta most certainly doesn’t. Yet she licked her plate too…

Next time we try one of Campers Pantry’s desserts… Creamed Rice with Apple. Yum!
