    2                    Sticks of cinnamon, broken
                         -in half
                         Salt and pepper to taste
   Cut orange in half and squeeze juice. Reserve juice.
   Stick 6 cloves into each half of the orange. Set aside.
   Heat olive oil in the pressure cooker. Add garlic,
   onions, leeks. Saute until leeks are wilted. Add
   celery, red pepper, carrots and mushrooms. Saute for
   another couple of minutes over medium high heat.
   Add stock, tomatoes, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon,
   lentils, reserved orange juice and orange halves. Make
   sure orange halves are buried in the stew.
   Lock lid in place, bring up to pressure. Cook for 11
   minutes. Release pressure. Season with salt and
   pepper. Serve over couscous.
   *Note: make sure to wash the leeks well. Mud tends to
   get caught inside them and there is nothing worse than
   girt in your stew.
