"I love lentils and split peas (no need to soak) so here is my recipe for a hearty comfort food soup. Using the pressure cooker is wonderful because after working all day, this is a quick and energy-saving way to make a meal in around 30 minutes! Serve with a nice hearty piece of warm bread."

yellow split peas

1 1/2 teaspoons
salt and ground black pepper to taste
lemon juice, or to taste
The only difference between this and one I make is like one other suggested is vegetable broth, and I also add a sweet potato to make it a little heartier. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I try it this way next time
I just made it and although it was easy and delicious mine also scorched. Any ideas why? I followed the instructions carefully.
Not having a pressure cooker, I just made the soup and added ham. Wow! I love this!
Very good soup. I added ham and the broth which I pressure cooked first and pulled the meat off. I also added celery, a potato, and garlic in a jar already cleaned and chopped from Costco (3T). Since I didn't have enough ham broth, I supplemented it with low sodium chicken broth. I added the carrots (shredded) later as a last step for 15 min.
Tried it with my pressure cooker and it was delicious. I also added 1/2 tsp of curry and a couple handfuls of frozen kale. We ate it over some brown rice and even my 6 yr old loved it!
Very yummy and super easy. Will make it again for sure :)
I really liked this soup. I make a big slow cooker pot of soup every Sunday to last the hubby and I through the week for lunches. This recipe was by far the quickest though surprisingly yummy! I am trying again tonight though may spice it up a bit more.
Very easy and great flavor. I made a triple batch on the stovetop in less than an hour. I used vegetable broth to make it VEGAN with fresh onions, one red and one yellow. I didn't have fresh carrots or garlic but a couple cans of diced carrots in water worked fine with garlic powder. Would be better with fresh but this recipe is a keeper! Thank you!
