This recipe makes a delicious soup. However, I would offer a word of warning regarding choice of lentils. I've made it twice, following the recipe exactly both times. The first time was perfect; the second time, the lentils were not cooked after 6 minutes in the pressure cooker. After a little research, I think I know why. The first time, I used brown lentils - the most common kind. The second time, I used green lentils (all I could find in the store that day). It turns out that green lentils typically take longer to cook than brown ones, and even when they're done, they're not as soft as the brown ones. The soup was definitely better with brown lentils. Except for that issue, the soup was easy to make and just right for a wintry day.
