Black Lentil Garbanzo Bean Stew In 12 minutes flat

More time is spent chopping the vegetables you want to put into this stew than it takes to cook it in the Instant Pot.
I think Instant Pot and recipes like this can inspire our kids to learn how to cook.
You’ll need

  1. Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker)
  2. Sharp chopping knife and cutting board (I use a different board for onion and garlic)
  3. 1t EVOO or 3T water (for sauté portion)
  4. 1 diced onion
  5. 6 diced garlic
  6. 6 cups vegetable broth
  7. 1t cayenne
  8. 1/2t cinnamon (optional)
  9. 1t turmeric
  10. 1 bay leaf
  11. 1 cup chopped carrots
  12. 3 celery stalks chopped
  13. 32 oz crushed tomato
  14. 1 1/2 cup rinsed lentils (I used black, any type work – the all turn brown)
  15. 1 cup broccoli chopped
  16. 1 cup cauliflower chopped
  17. 1 large sweet potato skin ON, diced
  18. 3 potatoes skin ON (regular) chop dice-size
  19. 1 can of garbanzo beans (rinsed)
  20. Place all of your ingredients on counter IN ADVANCE measured out.
  21. Turn Instant Pot on sauté mode
  22. Add oil or 3T of water
  23. Immediately add garlic, onion, carrots and celery and toss for 3 minutes (until softer or onions translucent)
  24. Add spices, stir well
  25. Add crushed tomato, stir
  26. Add lentils
  27. Add broth
  28. Add lentils
  29. Add remainder of ingredients
  30. Cancel InstantPot then immediate press MANUAL MODE
  31. Check the pressure knob is on “PRESSURE” setting
  32. Set manual mode to HIGH pressure and 12 minutes and allow pressure to reduce on its own

In a rush to eat? Cook for 14 minutes and release steam (BE CAREFUL it is super hot!)
I put all of these steps to make it easy to follow.

I hope you enjoy!
