Instant Pot Lentil Soup

Instant Pot Lentil Soup is a great option for when you’re craving soup, but don’t want anything too heavy. It is full of delicious flavor and texture that your tastebuds are sure to love.

Is this vegetarian?

Yes! This recipe is entirely vegetarian, as long as you use vegetable broth rather than chicken broth. Along with being vegetarian, it is dairy free AND gluten free. But, if you’re wanting to add chicken to this recipe, you are more than welcome to! Our Diced Chicken Breasts (#7787) are perfect for this recipe.

How long is this good for?

Since this soup doesn’t contain dairy or anything that gets mushy super quick, we suggest eating within 5 days. Just make sure you store in an air tight container! In addition, it can be stored in the fridge for up to 6 months. This is great for a busy night in the future!
