Can you post the recipe? I’ll try to help you

this pretty much like the recipe I use: thanks for any help! :)


  • 1 pound dry lentils
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard


  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey


  1. Combine the lentils, bay leaf, 2 cups water, chicken broth, and salt together in a dutch oven or oven-proof saucepan; bring the mixture to a boil. Place a cover on the pan, reduce heat to medium-low, and allow the lentils to simmer for 30 minutes. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Stir the dry mustard, ginger, soy sauce, onion, and 1 cup water together in a bowl; stir the mixture into the lentils. Drizzle the honey over the mixture. Return the cover to the pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the lentils are tender, about 1 hour.

Sorry it took me so long to respond.  I just now noticed that you responded.

So when I’m trying to figure out how to convert a recipe to the Instant Pot, I google similar recipes to get an idea of the time under pressure.

Here’s one that I found:  https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-cook-lentils-in-the-electric-pressure-cooker-234850

And I looked at others too and 15 minutes under pressure seems to be consistent.

I’d throw everything in the bowl and set for 15 minutes.  Hope it turns out for you!


eta:  I would add the second part of the recipe at the beginning without the additional cup of water.
