  • Place the lentils in a bowl, cover with hot water, and set aside to soak until needed.
  • Set the Instant Pot to sauté function, add the olive oil and sauté the shallots for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly, until slightly caramelized. Remove half of the shallots into a bowl and set aside for garnishing the dish later.
  • Now add the garlic to the remaining shallots in the Instant Pot and sauté for a further 1-2 minutes. Add the cilantro, parsley, lemon zest, all the spices, salt and water, and stir to combine. Drain the lentils and add to the Instant Pot, along with the rice, and stir again.
