here is the recipe of 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 🙂
What goes into lentil soup?
We love lentil soup for its versatility. We add onion, carrot, celery, and garlic as a base, plus canned tomatoes and fresh thyme. Lentil soup of course also needs lentils. The 18 minute wait is the time the lentils take to cook.
Can I make vegetarian lentil soup?
Of course. Swap in vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
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.
