Instant Pot Lentil and Potato Soup

Instant Pot Lentil and Potato Soup


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow or white onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 pound unpeeled red potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 cup red lentils, sorted and rinsed
  • 1 cup brown lentils, sorted and rinsed
  • 8 cups chicken or vegetable stock or broth
  • 8 oz box frozen spinach


  1. In a stovetop or electric pressure cooker, heat the oil using the saute option. Add the onion, garlic and carrots and cook for a minute or two, stirring constantly so the garlic doesn’t burn.


  2. Add the cumin, paprika, celery salt, and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the potatoes, lentils and stock or broth.


  4. Secure the lid on the pressure cooker. Cook at 3 minutes on high pressure. Quick release the pressure, unlock the lid, and stir in the spinach.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. I also added a bit more cumin and paprika at this time. The soup will thicken a bit as it cools.
