A pressure cooker lets you make hearty lentil and split pea soup with just 30 minutes of cooking time.
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 - 06 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 16 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The instructions to cook this for 30 minutes in a pressure cooker are wrong. This takes about 15 minutes in a modern pressure cooker. This may be why some of the other reviewers scorched theirs. The outcome is a smokey, thick soup that is good. It lacks some kick, not flavour, but some kick so I added fresh hot peppers and it seemed to help. Thank you BELEDONA for your recipe. - 01 Feb 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
