    I absolutely love this recipe but have been wanting to figure out an instant pot way to make it as well as everyone else asking so I just experimented and wanted to let you all know what I did.
    I started with the sauté option and sprayed a little avocado oil in the pan and put the celery, carrots, and onion. I sautéd them for about 5 minutes. 
    I then added the potatoes and let them sauté for a minute or two.
    Turned off the sauté.
    After that I added the lentils, diced tomatoes, vegetable stock, salt & pepper.
    I put it on pressure cook for 5 minutes and let it do it’s thing.
    Final result was that it still tastes delicious!! But lentils were a little hard. I tried it right after it finished so maybe letting it sit a little will soften them or maybe soaking them or slightly pre cooking them prior would be better? Just ideas to try!

    1. Hey Alyssa! I’ve done a few bean recipes in the Instant Pot, and yes, it is hard to get the lentils or beans to be tender. I’ll see if I can come up with an IP version of this and I’ll let you know. :)

    Made this today, really delicious!!  I’d like to make it in the instant pot – do you know how long I could pressure cook this recipe?

  4. Can I put tiny pasta in this?

  5. I don’t have a crock pot. Can I make this in a regular pot ? How long would I cook it ?

    I was craving ham and bean soup, but can only have lentils. I cooked this with smoked ham neck bones for flavor (I removed before serving), smoked sea salt, diced ham. I also added some tomato paste for depth. It was fantastic! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    I absolutely love your recipe! I am writing vegetarian recipe round ups on my blog in 2018 (to encourage people to try meatless monday- everyone has to start somewhere) and would love to feature you. You can check out my blog (for beginner environmentalists) at sunshineguerrilla.com. Is it alright if I share this link to your recipe?

    1. Yes of course, thanks!
