Today I am whipping up a bowl of easy green lentil soup. This will quickly become a favorite if you are looking for a healthy dish that will fill you up.
Green Lentil Soup Ingredients
Most of the ingredients I share with you today you most likely will have in your kitchen pantry. If you don’t have a bag or two of lentils you need to add that to your shopping list ASAP. There are so many good reasons to have lentils in your diet. I want to note I am using my Electric Power Pressure to put this together today. You can also make this on a stovetop (it just takes longer).
- Green Lentils
- Broccoli Slaw Mix (broccoli, carrots, and red cabbage)
- Sesame Seed Oil
- Chinese Five Spice ( star anise, fennel seeds, peppercorns, cloves and cinnamon)
- salt and pepper
- Microgreens (optional)

I invite you to join me in my kitchen as I show you just how easy this recipe is to make. I noted earlier that you can make this same recipe in your Instant Pot or even the stovetop. Stove Top cooking will take longer than in the Electric Pressure Cooker. If using an electric pressure cooker be sure to follow your manual directions so the lentils are cooked properly. I’ve used this recipe in both Instant Pot and XL Power Pressure Cooker and the lentils cook up perfectly!
