Lentil Soup - 8 Cups
INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped, about 1 cup
1 medium carrot, cut into ¼- inch dice, about 1 cup
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 bay leaf
1 pound dried brown lentils
5 cups chicken broth
1-1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Instructions
Place oil into the cooking pot of the Cuisinart Pressure Cooker. Select Sauté. Allow oil to heat for a few minutes and then stir the chopped onions into the pot. Sauté for about a minute or 2, until onions start getting soft. Stir in the carrots. Sauté vegetables for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and slightly golden. Stir in garlic and sauté for another minute or two, until garlic becomes aromatic.
Add bay leaf, lentils, and chicken broth to the pot. Lock lid in place. Select High Pressure. Set timer for 8 minutes. When audible beep sounds use Natural Release Method to release pressure. When float valve drops, remove lid carefully, tilting away from you to allow steam to disperse.
Remove and discard bay leaf. Stir in salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Taste and adjust seasonings accordingly.
Serve immediately.
Notes:
Vary the soup by adding chopped fresh spinach or serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
