Red Lentil and Yellow Split Pea Soup Made with a Pressure Cooker
January 13, 2016

Really good. Smooth and subtle. I upped the lemon quite a bit but that's just me; gave it the tang of Greek avgolemono. I also sauteed the carrot, onion & garlic, adding in that order, because that's my default method with aromatics. Like others, I see no reason to cook under pressure for more than 15 minutes. I used an electric pressure cooker (Cuisinart, high pressure, natural release). The result is nice and creamy. Four stars only because I'm partial to bigger flavor. I'll play around with it a bit based on some other recipes I've seen. That's the fun of cooking, right? Perhaps some tomato paste, smoked paprika, whole coriander toasted in a dry skillet before grinding...
