Break out your pressure cookers to make this healthy fall and winter recipe: Instant Pot Green Lentil Chili! It combines three of my favorite things: hearty soup, easy dinner, and chili seasoning. You can make the best Paleo and GAPS-friendly homemade meal ever in just 30 minutes, then top with cilantro, sour cream, or avocado, and dig in!
If using an electric cooker such as the Instant Pot, press the "Saute" function. If using a stovetop cooker, place on burner over medium heat.Wait until hot.
Add fat of choice to insert pot.
Add diced onions and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until translucent.
Add minced garlic. Give it a quick stir.
Add ground beef. Break it up into smaller chunks.
Turn off (if electric cooker) or remove from heat (if stovetop cooker).
Cover the pot, checking the seal and components to make sure all is well.
If using an electric cooker, set to high pressure for 20 minutes. If using a stove-top cooker, bring to high pressure and maintain for 20 minutes.
When cycle is complete, turn off (if electric cooker) or remove from heat (if stovetop cooker). Either quick release pressure or let sit until pressure has naturally released.
Once pressure is released, open lid and serve. Enjoy chili with your favorite fixings, such as sour cream, cheddar cheese, green onions, cilantro, and avocado.
Eat as leftovers the next day, and in thermoses for lunches! It's also a great freezer meal.
