Directions
STOVETOP METHOD
1
In a medium pot with a heavy bottom, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
2
Add the onion and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat if necessary to prevent browning.
3
Add lentils and rice, stirring to coat with oil.
4
Add vegetable broth, salt, cumin, turmeric, and black pepper.
5
Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to maintain a simmer.
6
Add carrots, celery, and zucchini to the pot.
7
Cook, stirring occasionally, until lentils, rice, and vegetables are completely tender and the soup is of uniform and moderately thick consistency; about 40 to 50 minutes.
8
Serve hot with lemon wedges to squeeze overtop.
INSTANT POT METHOD
9
Combine olive oil, onion, garlic, red lentils, rice, vegetable broth, salt, cumin, turmeric, black pepper, carrots, celery, and zucchini in an Instant Pot.
10
Set the vent to the sealing position.
11
Cook on manual mode, high pressure, for 10 minutes. The pot will take between 10 and 20 minutes to come up to pressure before timed cooking begins.
12
Carefully do a manual pressure release by turning the vent to open. We recommend using a towel or a long-handled spoon to do this.
13
Give your soup a stir, and it's ready to serve. Enjoy hot with lemon wedges to squeeze overtop.
