    3 garlic cloves, minced

    1 jalapeno pepper, minced

    1 Tbsp (15 mL) minced ginger

    3 cups (750 mL) white potato, cut into 1 inch (2.5 cm) cubes

    2 cups (500 mL) chopped green cabbage

    1 medium zucchini, chopped

    1 cup (250 mL) split red lentils

    5 cups (1.25 L) tomato juice

    1 (14.5 oz/398 mL) can diced tomatoes, undrained

    1 cup (250 mL) water

    1 tsp (5 mL) salt

    1 tsp (5 mL) sugar

    1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper

    3/4 cup (175 mL) peanut butter

    1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish


Directions

  1. Press “sauté” button on Instant Pot and add canola oil. Add the onions. Keep the lid off and sauté for 5 minutes, or until the onions are transparent.
  2. Add garlic, jalapeno pepper, and ginger. Sauté for an additional 2 minutes.
  3. Add potatoes, cabbage, zucchini, lentils, tomato juice, tomatoes, water, salt, sugar, and pepper to the Instant Pot.
  4. Press cancel to stop the sauté function, seal the lid, set to cook on HIGH pressure for 6 minutes. (It will take about 12 minutes for the pressure to build, then the timer will begin.)
  5. Once the timer has stopped, turn to vent to release the remaining pressure completely before opening the lid.
  6. Stir in peanut butter and cilantro. Heat for 2-3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with more cilantro and serve.
