Instant Pot THM E Lentil Soup

This lentil soup was part of my trim healthy mama food prep for the week. I used m instant pot because I wanted it finished, I didn’t want to wait all day for it to be finished. You can use your crockpot if you want to. Just cook it for about 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 on high. This thm e soup is really good for you and uses ingredients found at your local grocery stores. I like to make up a pot of soup and eat it throughout the week. I freeze any that isn’t eaten in single serve freezer bags as we get closer to the end of the week. This has been working out well. Eventually I will have a lot of lunches prepped in my freezer.

I am not a cooked spinach lover but it is barely noticeable in the soup and adds nutrition. You add it when the soup is finished cooking and it gets cooked by the hot soup. It is an optional ingredient though. If you need a new way to make lentil soup, give this trim healthy mama e recipe a try.
