    blucoat's Note:

    This is a super-fast, filling, healthy, and delicious vegetarian soup. Note: you may add corn kernels when you remove the pressure cooker lid. Remember that this soup is hotter than any soup that you make on the stove so let it cool accordingly. Recipe adapted from "The Veggie Queen" Jill Nussinow, MS, RD, and is on her DVD, "Pressure Cooking: A Fresh Look".

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in the pressure cooker over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add the onion and sauté until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the carrots and sauté for another minute. Add the bay leaves, thyme, savory as desired, water or broth, lentils, and potato. Stir well.
    3. 3
      Lock the lid in place on the cooker and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat until you achieve high pressure. Reduce the heat to maintain pressure for 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the pressure come down naturally. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you. Remove the bay leaves and thyme stems, and add salt and pepper to taste. Top with grated Parmesan as desired.

      This was excellent I had no savory winter herbs so I used 1/2 Tbsp of parsley and 1/2 tsp oregano. I also added 1 Tbsp minced garlic, 3 stalks of celery chopped and added an extra potato. It was my first time using my pressure cooker and it turned out great.

      Loved how quick and easy this was - the texture of the soup was just fantastic for a warming winter lunch. I used dried thyme and think that for my taste 1 tsp was a bit too much. I'm on a low iodine diet at the moment so had to leave out the parmesan. I'll be making it again for sure - and having it with the cheese on next time.
