    Tomorrow night I am cooking these in an instapot electric pressure cooker. I will cook it under 10 lbs pressure (instapot set at high) for 5 min (soaked).

    1 c Petite French Green Lentils
    2.5 c Chicken Stock
    2 pinches salt

    I am using the technique I use for your steel cut oats; I use an inserted bowl for the recipe and have 2 cups of water in the pressure cooker. I think this will ensure there is available moisture if the recipe ends up needing a bit more as well as ensures nothing burns.

    I have it on a timer and am happy to report on how it turns out. I don’t see much pressure cooker times on your literature; is there a resource you can point me out to?

    Have I messed up? There is still time to correct the recipe…What should I be doing?
