Lentils With Mushrooms in a Pressure Cooker

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Veggie LuvR

Any mushrooms will do, but I recommend using criminis or portabellas for a hearty, simple yet sumptuous autumn stew.

This is a good recipe. I used crimini mushrooms and french (green) lentils. Easy to make and tasty. I was pleasantly surprised. My bf and I had this as our main meal (no sides) and this fed the two of us for dinner with no leftovers. This is a recipe I would make again. I was skeptical of the vinegar, but it really adds something great to the dish. Thanks for posting!
