Instant Pot Instructions

Sauté the vegetables: Using the sauté setting on normal or high, heat up the Instant Pot for a few minutes. If using oil, drizzle a small amount in bottom of pot and heat until just hot. Add onion cook until golden and soft, adding a pinch of salt to bring out the moisture, 5-8 minutes. Add small amounts of vegetable broth and stir/scrape to avoid burning onions, especially if choosing not to use oil.

Add minced garlic and stir, then add carrots and celery. Cook 3-4 minutes until vegetables start to soften.

Add remaining ingredients: Add vegetable broth and gently scrape bottom of the pot to deglaze. Add remaining broth, lentils, potatoes, herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Stir until blended.

After soup is completely stirred, pour the crushed tomatoes with liquid on top of lentil mixture. Do not stir but leave tomatoes sitting on top.

Cook on high pressure: Place the lid on and set the valve to seal. Cook at high pressure for 11 minutes, then allow natural pressure release. Manually release after 10 minutes.

Add final ingredients: Open the pot and remove bay leaves and any stems, if using fresh herbs. If adding fresh greens, turn pot to sauté on high, then fold greens into cooked soup and let greens heat for 2-3 minutes until just wilted. Be careful not to burn soup to the bottom of the pot. Then stir in the mustard & balsamic vinegar. Taste and add salt/pepper, as desired.
