These creamy (but dairy-free) lentils are bursting with Italian flavors!



  1. Dump all of the ingredients in the pressure cooker and stir to combine.
  2. Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes.
  3. Do a quick release of the steam.
  4. Stir and serve. Enjoy!


*Since many people have commented that 1/4 cup water leaves them with scorched lentils, I’ve edited the ingredients. I still have not had a problem with 1/4 of a cup of water and when I try it with more water, my husband thinks the lentils are too mushy. But with so many reviewers saying that they like it with more water, I’ve included a range in the ingredients. Please comment with what works for you.
