Instant Pot Lentil Soup



How do I make soup in my Instant Pot?
  • Instant Pots are amazing for soup. You simply add ingredients, set your Instant Pot to high, and press go! Soups are done in less than 20 minutes.
Will the flavors taste the same?
  • Yes—but any time you make soup if you first sauté your aromatics (onion, celery, garlic, etc) before adding your broth and other ingredients, it helps build flavor. The whole point of the Instant Pot is, well, that the soup is done in an instant, so we skip flavor building here :)
Do other greens besides spinach work?
  • Absolutely. Once the lentils are tender, remove the lid of the Instant Pot and stir in whatever leafy greens you like—kale, Swiss chard, arugula, even mustard greens (our favorite for their spicy taste) and stir until wilted
