Big Flavor Bites with Number Juan Bus

We’ve been living and traveling full time in our skoolie (@numberjuanbus) for over a year and in that time we’ve made a lot of delicious food. We often get asked, “What can you cook in your bus?” The answer is pretty much anything! However, when it comes to living in a tiny space and living off-grid you do want to choose meals and snacks that don’t make a lot of dirty dishes or require a lot of water. Wraps, sandwiches, bowls, burritos, and one sheet pan meals are great ideas for lunch/ dinners. Here are a few of our go-to bites to eat!

Cucumber Lime and Sea Salt Snack:

Kinda sounds weird but it’s one of our favorite snacks. It’s quick, easy, healthy and everyone in the family loves it!

 Cucumber Lime Sea Salt Snacks1


 Lime Recipie

Gather ingredients: 1 cucumber, 1 lime, sea salt
Peel the skin off the cucumber
Thinly slice the cucumber
Cut the lime in half
Squeeze the lime juice over the cucumbers
Sprinkle with sea salt to taste preference
Enjoy! It’s an ideal refreshing snack


Buffalo Cauliflower Wraps:

This meal happened on accident one day when I was trying to use up random ingredients I had on hand. It’s quickly become a staple meal and works for lunch or dinner.

Wrap Recipie

Gather ingredients: frozen cauliflower, cooking oil of choice, Frank's Red Hot Wings Hot Buffalo sauce, cucumber, tomato, ranch, wraps. (Optional: add spinach and avocado to fancy up this wrap.)
Preheat oven to 400°F
Toss frozen cauliflower in cooking oil (I normally use ev olive oil)
Place cauliflower on a baking sheet and cook for 20mins or longer for crispier cauliflower.
While cauliflower is cooking cut up your veggies.
I like to cut my cucumbers in “stick" shape for this wrap
I prefer cherry tomatoes but any will work.
Place baked cauliflower on a wrap
Drizzle Frank's hot sauce to preference
Drizzle ranch or blue cheese to preference
Add veggies
Wrap up, serve with chips or fruit and enjoy!


Jackfruit BBQ Sandwich:

This meal is so quick, so easy, and so delicious! This is healthy BBQ and also works for Lunch or Dinner.

 Jackfruit Recipie

Gather ingredients: 1 can of Jackfruit, Favorite BBQ sauce, and buns.
Rinse off jackfruit and shred with a fork or by hand
Sauté the jackfruit over medium heat for 5-7 minutes
Add sauce and sauté for 1-2 mins
Remove from heat and stir until cool enough to eat.
Load up a bun, serve with your favorite BBQ side, (ours is mac & cheese, but coleslaw or baked beans are also great options) enjoy!
