About this Recipe

Apparently, I have been missing out on lentils and rice up until recently. I liked the idea of this recipe but wasn't fully sold until I tried it a variety of ways. Going with the amounts of water I would have used for the lentils and rice separately, then of course...


✓ 4 cups water
✓ 1 1/2 cups brown lentils
✓ 1 cup rice
✓ 3/4 cup medium salsa (mild or medium)
✓ 2 tablespoons olive oil
✓ 2 teaspoons salt
✓ 2 teaspoons chili powder (mild or medium)
✓ 1 teaspoon garlic powder
✓ 1/2 - 1 teaspoon piri piri or cayenne


✓ Mix everything together in Instant Pot
✓ Close lid and set on "bean" setting for 15 minutes
✓ Quick Release Carefully, turn off warm setting
✓ Serve as a main or side dish
