Fantastic camping food. Easy, tasty, healthy and quick. I soaked the lentils in the morning and carried them in a jar in my pack. This cut the cooking time down to about 10 minutes. The only thing I would change next time for camping was to use instant mash because potatoes are heavy. We made this in the kitchen last week and it was just as good.
