MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 1, 2014

"Has anyone had very good luck putting everything in the pot at once? I have a package of something very similar: by the time the lentils, peas, and barley are done the pasta (and rice in the store-bought mix) are mush. I'm thinking you really have to package the items requiring longer cooking times together, which would help with rinsing. Cook those for 45-60 minutes before adding anything else. This mix can also be improved by adding dried vegetables."

"The peas need to be rinsed and sorted prior to cooking. How do you handle this if all ingredients are combined together for giving."

"I added 1 cup more water to the mix when I made it. Delicious and very filling!"
