F.A.Q’s

Do lentils need to be soaked before making soup?

When making lentil soup on the stove top it is recommended that you soak them first. I have found that cooking them with the veggies first and then using the Instant Pot makes a presoak unnecessary. In fact, if you are using the Instant Pot I would not recommend soaking first. 

Why has my lentil soup turned brown?

Lentils are a legume and once cooked they darken in color. This is perfectly normal and expected. 

Is lentil soup healthy?

This instant pot gluten free lentil soup is packed with flavorful nutrients and lots of healthy fiber and protein. It is an awesome healthy soup recipe you will enjoy. 

Which Instant Pot should I Buy?

I use the 8 qt Instant Pot. I also have the 6 qt, that was my first Instant Pot. However, I wanted a larger one so that I could double recipes and make bigger pots of soup and chili. The 8 qt is perfect!
