Instant Pot Lentil Tortilla Stew Recipe

This Instant Pot lentil tortilla stew is perfect for autumn or winter weather!

Since I went 100% plant-based, I find myself recreating a lot of my old, meat-based recipes. I love that I can still enjoy all my favorites without partaking in meat consumption.

Clean Eating Lentil Tortilla Stew Recipe

One of my favorites so far is this clean eating lentil tortilla stew recipe. It’s hearty, filling, comforting, and definitely warming on a chilly afternoon or evening. It’s a great option for a thermos lunch for school or work as well.

Why Lentils?

  • Lentils are crazy full of good nutrition.
  • They have lots of iron.
  • Lots of fiber.
  • They also have a good serving of protein!

I loved that I had a bunch left over to pack for Mini Chef’s lunches. It makes life so much easier in the morning if his lunches are already packed and ready to go, and it leaves me some for lunch too. A win-win for busy school and workdays!
