  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced white onion
  • 1 pound mushrooms sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup green lentils rinsed
  • 1 cup beef or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 pound egg noodles
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • parsley for garnish


  • Turn Instant Pot onto sautee setting. Once hot, pour 1T olive oil into pan, then 1/2 c diced onions, 1 lb sliced mushrooms, 1/2 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp ground pepper. Stir until translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Deglaze with 1/4 c red wine. Stir and cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Add 1/2 green lentils and 1 c stock to vegetables. The mushrooms will not be completely covered, but that's ok. Stir. Cancel cooking setting and reset to MULTIGRAIN and cook for 15 minutes on HIGH. Place lid on, and set vent to SEALING.
  • Once timer has gone off, let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. While pressure is releasing, cook 1/2 lb egg noodles according to package directions. Once lentils have been sitting for 10 minutes, turn vent from SEALING to VENTING. Let remaining steam release. Open lid once it's unlocked. Add 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt, stir together. Pour over hot noodles, and garnish with fresh parsley if desired. Enjoy



parmesan cheese is also great on this stroganoff!
If you want to sub the red wine, sub with equal parts grape juice OR broth.
