I never realized how much I love cooking until I got my Instant Pot for a birthday gift. I found out that it is not that I do not like to cook, but rather I did not have the time to cook until I got my Instant Pot. I realized after I made my first pot of soup in it that I was going to use it at least a few times a week, even though it is just my husband and myself eating at meal times. Last week, I found an Instant Pot Lentil Soup recipe that is beyond delicious.
I have never been a huge fan of lentils even though I eat them because my doctor said they are good for my cholesterol issues. When you eat something that you don’t really like, it is hard to enjoy it. I was looking online for a soup recipe, and that is how I came across the lentil soup recipe on a website that has since become my favorite one to find delicious recipes and meal ideas. What I like about this site is that it not only tells you how to make the meals, but it tells you exactly what tools you need to do it!
For example, on the lentil soup, most people might think that you just need an Instant Pot, but I needed a cutting board, measuring spoons, a hand blender, and more. I also like that it gives health information about the meals. For the lentil soup, it has the lentils and pumpkin, and it explains the health benefits of both those foods. The best part is how quick it was to make this. I have always used winter as my soup time, and it was generally out of a can. Now, I eat soup year round, and it is always homemade!
