Instant Pot Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup brown or green lentils (50 g)
  • 1/4 cup millet (50 g)
  • 1/4 cup black rice (50 g)
  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats (45 g)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Instant Pot Directions

  • Place the lentils, millet, black rice and oats in a fine mesh strainer and rinse well with water. Tap the strainer against the sink to remove as much excess water as possible.
  • Transfer the mixture to the Instant Pot (IP), along with the (new) water. Lock the lid into place, making sure the nozzle is in the sealing position. 
  • Use the Manual (or Pressure Cooking) mode and set the timer for 15 minutes. Use the natural release method when the timer goes off.
  • Remove the lid and fluff the grains with a fork and add the vanilla. Cool to room temperature, then promptly store in your fridge. 
  • Once you have your grains made, heat up however much you want in a saucepan with some non dairy milk. Place in a bowl and top with chopped apple, chopped walnuts and a bit of maple syrup. Add a bit more non dairy milk if you like.
