1. Pre-heat pot on browning function. When prompted, add olive oil and onions to the bowl, cook for a few minutes or until translucent.

2. Add lentils and sauté for a further 30 seconds. Add 2 cups of the cold water and switch the machine to pressure cook mode for 3 minutes.

3. When prompted open the machine and mix the onions and lentils then add the rice, cumin, salt and the remaining 1 1/2 cups of water and pressure cook for 9 minutes.

4. When prompted, open the machine and fluff the lentils and rice with a fork. Place in a wide dish and allow to cool to room temperature.

5. Once rice and lentils are at room temperature start to assemble the dish. In a large mixing bowl place the lentils and rice mixture and all the vegetables minus the herbs. Mix lightly until well combined. Add the dressing and toss together.
