Red Lentil and Yellow Split Pea Soup Made with a Pressure Cooker

I’ve used both red lentils and yellow split peas in soups, but never together.

Ingredients

1 cup red lentils
1 cup yellow split peas
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
2 carrots, coarsely chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
8 cups chicken broth
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon lemon juice, or to taste

Directions

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.
