Here is a simple recipe I made with my Instant Pot electric pressure cooker that serves two:


  • 1 small/medium onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup red lentils, rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle chili pepper powder (mine is Kroger grocery store brand)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons Sushi Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups water


  1. Place all items in Instant Pot electric pressure cooker.  Stir to combine.  Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.
  2. Release the pressure.
  3. Serving suggestion: spoon over hot broccoli into bowls.

Instant Pot Minestrone Soup

  • 2 aseptic containers Organic chicken broth, low sodium
  • 5 organic carrots, sliced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup organic whole wheat pasta
  • 6 organic golden potatoes, cubed
  • 28 oz can organic diced tomatoes in own juice
  • 2 stalks organic celery, sliced
  • 1/2 cabbage, sliced
  • 1 crown broccoli, chopped


Add all to pot and stir. Pot will be pretty full but should be some space at top. Cook on soup setting. Use longer setting to ensure noodles are cooked.

Season with salt, fresh pepper, Italian seasonings, and a bit of hot sauce when it is done. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.

We had this tonight with warm rolls. Delicious!
