Lebanese Lentils & Whole-Grain (Mujadara) | Instant Pot

Happy Friday Everyone!

Friday means the end of a workweek and an easy instant pot/slow cooker recipe.

This week we are using our beloved instant pot (3qt).

One of Marcs' favorite dishes his family makes is Lebanese Lentils & Whole-Grain (Mujadara). I've figured out a way of keeping all the flavor while being a SOS-free whole food plant-based dish. Plus we pretty much just throw the ingredients into an instant pot, set it, and forget it! Friday night dinner is finished.

Pair our Lebanese Lentils & Whole-Grain (Mujadara) recipe with any vegetables you enjoy and you've got a great meal.

Love this recipe. Made it a few times. I chop up a cauliflower and pop that in too. Good way to add in veggies!

I made this last night. I doubled the recipe and used bulgur. I first made the Lemony Hummus from the How Not to Die Cookbook and used it. I love the ease of sauteing the onions in the IP and cooking everything together. It's so good!

I love this recipe! Made it twice and will double it next time. Made it first time with bulgur and it was a little dry. Second time I made it with a brown and wild rice mix and a little more liquid (IP adjusted to 12 minutes for the rice) and it was heavenly. Will continue with some other grains. It is a household favorite. Thanks so much!

OMG! So GOOD! Hubs and I switched to WFPBSOS Free in June and I'm still having trouble adapting to the new flavors, but I have to tell you that this recipe was LOVE at first bite! I am loving your recipes. A few months ago I tried your Red Lentil stew with potatoes and carrots etc., and that is now on our meal rotation. Thank You!
