Instructions

Instant Pot

  • Place your grains and lentils in a bowl and cover with water. Let sit for at least 8 hours or overnight.

  • 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 13 minutes.
  • When time is up, use the natural release. After all the pressure is out of the pot, remove the lid and stir.
  • Remove the pot and allow it to cool completely before transferring to a container and storing in your fridge.
