Instant Pot Lentil Soup

This recipe for Instant Pot Lentil Soup is amazing!  I have recently fallen in love with the instant pot and Lentil soup. Melissa developed this recipe years ago and I wanted to convert it to an instant pot meal so that it could more easily be done on a week night and not require an hour of simmer time.

We love our instant pot! Get one here: Instant POT

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Total Time30 minutes
Course: Healthy
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6


  • 1/4 C Olive Oil Extra Virgin
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 1.5 C Carrots You can use any type of carrot you want
  • 2 stalks Celery chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic or 2 tablespoons of minced
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 can 14.5 ounce can of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 C dry lentils
  • 8 C Chicken Broth
  • 2 tbls vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Start with instant pot on Saute mode, heat olive oil. Add onions, carrots, and celery. Saute until onion is tender (about 3-4 minutes). Stir in garlic, bay leaf, oregano, and basil; cook for 1 more minute. It takes the Instant Pot a minute to heat up, so keep that in mind.
  • Add lentils, broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil.  Let boil 1-2 minutes.
  • Switch to Instant Pot mode, put on the lid and seal the instant pot and cook on manual pressure at high for 12 minutes. It will take about 8 minutes for the pot to pressurize. After the 12 minutes is up, quick release by flipping release valve to "venting" (a little bit at a time at first.)
  • Once venting is finished, remove lid. When ready to serve stir in spinach and vinegar, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Keeps in the refrigerator for 3-5 days, and freezes really well too!
