    The instant pot lentil soup came out good. you just have to add more seasoning to give it more flavor. i used vegetable broth, i would advise using chicken stock to give it a little more flavor as well.

    This was really good and easy to make. I would reduce the amount of lentils to 1 cup and add more broth. I also think the potatoes are unnecessary, it’s very hearty without them.

    Amazing recipe I’ve already made this twice and everybody loves it. Second time I added turkey bacon which gave it an even better flavor and taste!!!!!

    Love lentil soup. Need to make it have more broth by lessening the amount of lentils (I also have a smaller instant pot)

    Tasted great. Probably doesn’t need to be pressure cooked so long and could use more vegetable broth.

    Turned out really good! I have just recently gotten interested in cooking and this was a great easy recipe for a family of 4. Tons of leftovers. I used chicken stock and added some chicken thighs.

    Came out really good. I decided to put it in the slow cooker and added my own seasonings with some curry paste.

    too mushy. Cooked too long, I guess

    this soup came out perfectly! i found the directions on pressure cooking a little confusing, but went with the equipment settings. I added a little Turkey Italian sausage to mine, but that's just my taste. it's delicious!

    It was very good, I would certainly make it again. I did find that I needed to add more vegetable broth than it asked for but that was not a problem.

    I didn't end up adding the kale, but even without it was incredibly tasty! I substituted some Rotel with habaneros for the tomatoes to give it some spice, really helped add some extra flavor.
