I agree , cous cous , cooks in no time , and you can add anything to it for a meal . I made my own 24 hr ration packs , just grab a box and go . I use the LRRP mains for the base , 3 in each box . Made by the same company that makes Mountain House freeze dried meals . Decent amount of food in a small package ( LRP ration mains ) .
Lentils are easy to make . The red ones are smaller , so they cook faster .
