Beans & Legumes: Lentil Soup with Potatoes

Lentils :: レンズ豆 :: lentejas

Prep Time: 5 -10 minutes


4 Cups chicken stock

Olive oil for sauté

3 – 4 cloves of chopped garlic

1/2 onion, chopped

2 – 4 Italian or Spanish (chicken or pork) sausages/chorizo, sliced.

1/2 C chopped or shredded carrots

3 – 4 diced potatoes

1.5 C lentils, rinsed and picked-over

1/2 C chopped cherry tomatoes

½ -1 Tbsp red wine vinegar (or to taste)

Lentils are so easy! There is no soaking, they cook quickly in the Instant Pot, and taste good left-over!

How To:

  1. Place about 1/2-to-1 Tbsp of oil in your Instant Pot, press the SAUTÉ button, set to low.
  2. Add sausage, sauté until browned on both sides.
  3. Add chopped garlic and onion – sauté until onions are translucent.
  4. Add chicken stock, lentils, potatoes, and carrots. Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes.
  5. After pressure releases, add tomatoes. Keep in the KEEP WARM mode, allowing the tomatoes to soften.
  6. Add salt & pepper, and red wine vinegar to taste.
  7. Serve warm

Kidwise: My kids prefer just to eat the sausage. I pick some out before I start the soup, and prepare a plate of sliced sausages, rice or buttered pasta, carrots and tomatoes. Generally they eat while the soup finishes cooking. When the kids are done, and everything is cleaned-up, I can sit down and enjoy my meal. Itadakimasu :: Iいただきます
