Now, when they tell you about the InstantPot, they tell you it cooks much more quickly. Well, sometimes it do and sometimes it don't. What they don't do when they're telling you the times is include the time it takes for the pot to heat up and get to pressure. Sometimes that makes it take longer than regular stovetop or oven cooking.
But wild rice is a bugger. Wild rice takes For. EV. Ver. Not in the InstantPot.
Besides, soup in the InstantPot is AMAZING. The flavors are so rich and deep, it's worth any little extra time. You just have to allow for it, that's all I'm sayin'.
Lentil and Wild Rice Soup in the InstantPot
- olive oil
- 4 times as much water as lentils
- 1/4 cup wild rice
- sliced carrots
- diced onion
- diced celery
- vegetarian bouillon cubes
- seasoning to taste
Turn the pot onto Saute, heat the oil, and cook the vegetables until the onion goes translucent. Add the water and bouillon cubes and continue on Saute until the cubes are dissolved. Cancel the Saute. Add the lentils, wild rice, and seasonings, put on the lid, set to pressure, not vent. Press Beans or else press Manual and set it for an 40 minutes.
Looked like this.
I'm posting at my own blog today about a vegetarian low-carb feast.
