"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."

  1. Place the lentils, split peas, onion, carrots, garlic, and cumin into a pressure cooker, and stir in the chicken broth. Seal the cooker, bring to pressure over medium heat, and reduce heat to keep the pressure stable; cook under pressure for 30 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow pressure to subside. When the cooker is at normal pressure, remove the cover, season with salt and pepper and stir in lemon juice to serve.

I just made it and although it was easy and delicious mine also scorched. Any ideas why? I followed the instructions carefully.

The instructions to cook this for 30 minutes in a pressure cooker are wrong. This takes about 15 minutes in a modern pressure cooker. This may be why some of the other reviewers scorched theirs....

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!

I don't have a pressure cooker so i just used my stove top and let it cook for an hour. I didn't have carrots so I used celery in its place! I also added some chili powder and omitted the lemon ...

Very yummy and super easy. Will make it again for sure :)

Really good. Smooth and subtle. I upped the lemon quite a bit but that's just me; gave it the tang of Greek avgolemono. I also sauteed the carrot, onion & garlic, adding in that order, because t...
