It's camping season! And we're coming up my favourite time of year; early fall. This is the season of chilly mornings and brisk evenings, of morning tent snuggles, and evening fire huddles. I love few things more than getting out of city and into the wild, and I especially love camp fire cooking.
What follows is a recipe for a high-protein, light-weight, easy-to-pack, just-add-water, non-processed, whole-foods, non-perishable, stick-to-your-ribs, no-MSG, quick-to-prepare, (take a breath) delicious red lentil soup. It's also full of slow-burning, energy-sustaining, complex carbohydrates -- perfect fuel for a day of hiking, climbing, swimming, kayaking, and general out-door fun.
