This post shows you how to cook Instant Pot lentils to perfection, using either red or green lentils. A great alternative to the stove that cooks through quickly.

These Instant pot lentils cook quickly, but for me the true benefit is the 'hands off' factor. The thing I love about the Instant Pot is how you can 'set it and forget it'- no need to stir or to watch for a pot to boil over!
