This vegan lentil chili cooks up in a snap in an Instant Pot. Set out small bowls filled with toppings so each person can garnish their own bowls of chili. I like to serve the chili with diced avocado, sliced jalapeño peppers, chopped cilantro, sliced green onions, and lime wedges. 

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onions chopped
1 large green bell pepper chopped
3 medium carrots diced
1 jalapeño peppers finely chopped
1 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons sea salt
1¾ cups green lentils
2 cups diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
6 cups water
1 small bunches cilantro chopped

Optional Toppings

2 small avocados cubed
2 jalapeño peppers thinly sliced
1 limes cut into wedges
4 green onions sliced into rounds
½ cups chopped cilantro
