  1. Place the lentils, split peas, onion, carrots, garlic, and cumin into a pressure cooker, and stir in the chicken broth. Seal the cooker, bring to pressure over medium heat, and reduce heat to keep the pressure stable; cook under pressure for 30 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow pressure to subside. When the cooker is at normal pressure, remove the cover, season with salt and pepper and stir in lemon juice to serve.

Very easy and great flavor. I made a triple batch on the stovetop in less than an hour. I used vegetable broth to make it VEGAN with fresh onions, one red and one yellow. I didn't have fresh ...

Tried it with my pressure cooker and it was delicious. I also added 1/2 tsp of curry and a couple handfuls of frozen kale. We ate it over some brown rice and even my 6 yr old loved it!

Not having a pressure cooker, I just made the soup and added ham. Wow! I love this!

I really enjoyed this recipe. So easy!! I did it on the stovetop & made the following adjustments: Veggie stock instead of chicken - for vegan. Added broccoli, turmeric, bay leaf, oregano. To lo...

I did recipe as is, but will try the ham hock next time for flavor. FYI, this was my first time cooking in my new Fagor multi-cooker. I cut the time to 15 minutes, just in case. I was really w...
