Notes on Ingredients

The key to this vibrant soup is the combination of fresh vegetables and aromatic spices. The red lentils provide a beautiful color and a smooth texture, while the cumin, cinnamon, and allspice add a depth of flavor that’s simply irresistible. Don’t forget the final touch of lemon juice, which adds a refreshing brightness to the soup.

How to Make Instant Pot Lebanese Lentil Soup

  1. Sauté the Vegetables: Turn on your Instant Pot and select the Sauté function. Heat the olive oil and add finely chopped onion, diced Yukon Gold potato, carrot, tomato, celery, and chopped garlic. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until the vegetables are slightly softened.
  2. Add Spices: Sprinkle kosher salt, ground cumin, ground cinnamon, and allspice over the vegetables. Stir until the spices are fragrant.
  3. Pressure Cook: Pour in the low-sodium vegetable broth, water, and red lentils. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure and set the timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for the pressure to build.
  4. Bake Pita Chips: While the soup is cooking, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread pita bread squares on a lined baking sheet, spray with cooking spray, and season with salt. Bake for about 8 minutes until toasted.
  5. Blend and Finish: Release the pressure using the quick-release method, then unlock and remove the lid. Puree the soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in the juice of one lemon.

How to Serve Instant Pot Lebanese Lentil Soup

Ladle the soup into bowls and top each serving with a handful of crispy pita chips. Serve with additional lemon wedges on the side for an extra burst of citrusy freshness.

How to Store Instant Pot Lebanese Lentil Soup

This soup thickens as it sits, so be sure to store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When reheating, add a bit of water to thin it out to your desired consistency. The soup will keep well for up to 3 days.
