"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 1/2 teaspoons

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
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.
Very yummy and super easy. Will make it again for sure :)
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!
I still have to work on my pressure cooker technique, but the flavor is excellent! I think I left if on medium too long and maybe didn't lower the temperature enough. It did get a bit scorched on the bottom. Those problems are clearly user error and nothing to do with the recipe.
