French Lentils and Carrot Vegan Instant Pot

French lentils are my favorite lentil to cook with! Cooking them in the instant pot makes them a breeze. This recipe comes out very thick like a super thick stew or risotto type consistency. If you want to make it into a soup add an extra cup or two of broth.


1 1/2 cups French lentils

2 cups water

2 cups vegetable broth

3 carrots sliced

1 onion diced

3 garlic cloves chopped

Half bunch of cilantro chopped

1/2 cup sweet frozen corn kernels

2-3 teaspoons Garam Masala or curry powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon herbs blend or just basil

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 can of tomato paste

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons olive oil after cooking

Combine all ingredients in pressure cooker and set to manual high for 12 minutes. When finished cooking quick release pressure. Stir and add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and more salt to taste if needed. Serve with basmati rice or fresh naan bread.
