  • Summary

    Cook this rich and fragrant soup in the pressure cooker and have it on the table in about a half hour. But if pressure cooking is not your style, simply cook it in a covered pot over low heat, adding extra water as necessary, until the lentils are tender and then proceed with step #3.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups brown or green lentils uncooked
    • 8 cups water or vegetable broth
    • 1 large onion chopped
    • 2 large carrots thickly sliced
    • 1 rib celery chopped
    • 2 large gold or red potatoes cut into large cubes
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 2 vegetable bouillon cubes use if water is used instead of broth
    • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • freshly ground pepper to taste
    • 2 cloves garlic minced
    • Additional seasonings: 1/4 teaspoon coriander, 1/4 teaspoon cumin, 2 cloves minced garlic
    • salt to taste
