Red lentils are a versatile ingredient when it comes to savory camp meals. If you’re on a shorter trip and can carry fresh ingredients like leafy greens (perhaps a little kale or chard? ), those will work great in here as well, just shred and toss them in a few minutes before the lentils are finished cooking. When it comes to quantities, no matter how much you are cooking, you want about a 1:3 red lentil to water ratio. Depending on your preference on levels of spiciness, gauge how much or how little to use.
