Soup Recipe // Instant Pot Split Pea & Lentil Soup


* Recipe by guest contributor Laney Schwartz, creator of Life is But a Dish

FINALLY! I know, you guys have been waiting so patiently. Thank you! It took me a little time to get familiar with my Instant Pot. And yes, I do love it. However, I still can’t and won’t give up my slow cooker. To me they have two very different uses. And yes, I realize I can use the slow cooker function on my Instant Pot, but my slow cooker is large and I just still love it. I can’t give it up just yet.

Have I confused you yet?

I have two favorite features on the Instant Pot.

1. I love that you can sauté directly in the pot.

2. I love how quickly I can have “slow cooked” food.

This soup in particular allows me to sauté the ingredients for a few minutes to help create lots of flavor. Then literally 10 minutes later I’ve got dinner that tastes like it’s been cooking away all day long.


I’m obsessed with the combination of split peas and red lentils. It creates a thick and protein packed soup that I end up eating all week long.

I love love love it, and I’m so excited to finally be sharing it with you!

But don’t worry, if you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, I’ve got stove top and slow cooker directions as well!
