This is a large recipe, so you may find that it serves 2 smaller appetites better.
On the rice you can use white or brown, depending on how you prefer it – brown cooks best one pot method.
This recipe was inspired by Ski, a hiker who makes up batches with raw rice and lentils. This was my offering to make it more “trail friendly”.
