Pressure Cooker Lentil Soup

One of my friends turned me onto this soup and I have come up with my own recipe. It is quick, easy and if you have a pressure cooker, fast.

Pressure Cooker Lentil Soup

1 lb bag brown lentils, sorted
1 onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, pressed
4 carrots, chopped
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 green pepper or 5 small sweet peppers, chopped
6 cups vegetable broth
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 bay leaf
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp paprika

Pour out lentils and sort through to make sure there aren’t any small stones. Saute onion and garlic in the bottom of the pressure cooker with a little olive oil. Add in the rest of the chopped vegetables and saute for 3 – 5 minutes just to sweat them. Add in vegetable broth, herbs and diced tomatoes and place the lid on the pressure cooker. Bring up to pressure and keep at pressure for 3 minutes. Turn off stove and let cool a little before carefully releasing pressure. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary.
