There are three things in life I couldn’t live without; my slow-cooker, my Thermos and my hikes. This recipe utilises all three. I always prep it the night before and then transfer it to my Thermos before I head out for the day – not forgetting to pop in a couple of rotis. The circular walk to the top of Pen-y-Ghent from Horton-in-Ribblesdale is one of my favourite walks in the UK, and this dahl makes the view from the top all the more satisfying. Healthy, hearty and filling, you’ll be all fuelled up for the descent, which believe me, you’ll need.See method...
