Dal and Rice with Spinach
Lactose Free and Gluten Free Camping and Expedition Food
Five kinds of lentils, simmered with onion, garlic, cumin and chilli. Combined with basmati rice, spinach and garam masala, finished with chopped coriander and a squeeze of lemon juice.
The search for the perfect lentil
We love the simplicity of dal. Healthy ingredients that pack a warming punch. The secret to a good dal is in the lentils - holding enough shape to provide a crunch, with a softness that fills your mouth with flavour. We tested every type of lentil we could find, cooking dal after dal, looking for one that worked. But we soon realised no single type could provide everything we wanted - so we chose five. Together they give the right blends of texture and flavour, with the ability to soak up all that spice. Combined with aromatic basmati rice and crisp, green spinach, our dal is guaranteed to leave you feeling full and satisfied, with a heat that's comforting but not too hot. Perfect for those cold nights on the mountains.
Shelf life is one year from manufacture with the compostable packaging.
The packaging is compostable so you need a pan to rehydrate it in
and a way of measuring your water.

These compostable bags are made from bio-based sources, including sugar cane, which means they are fully compostable and should disintegrate within a year in compost faster if the levels of warmth, moisture and air exposure are right.Disposing of the packets
To dispose of your pouches in an environmentally-friendly way, we recommend that you either:Place them in compost
Our pouches are certified for home and industrial compost, and meet food regulation requirements in Europe and the USA*. The ideal conditions for compost include warm temperatures and exposure to air. The composted materials can then be used as fertiliser. Possibly the first plastic free camping and expedition food in pouches.Throw them away in household waste
Not everyone has access to compost facilities. While throwing your compostable pouch into common household waste means it will end up in landfill, it will still compost down to nothing in less than a year. This is compared to plastic which can take over 500 years to do the same.
Please note: Do not put these packets in your recycling bin, as they are compostable not recyclable. Please also do not leave them outdoors, as they still take a while to break down to nothing.
