Son Brian was the first person in the family to get an Instant Pot, and he gave me one last year. Since then we've shared recipes and tips back and forth. Very early on I made an Indian-inspired lentil soup recipe which used both brown and red or yellow lentils. (The colorful ones took less time to cook and fell apart before the brown ones were done, which made the finished dish wonderfully thick.) I told Brian; he made the recipe and liked it so much it went into his regular cooking rotation. He even started making up batches of a seasoning mix to have on hand, then shared the information with Son Donald, who shared it with me:
Turmeric, chili powder, coriander, cumin, black pepper,
onion powder, and garlic
When the soup was done I served it up with tortilla chips to continue the Mexican theme. It was so good I forgot to take a photo!

OK ... now you've made me hungry. Thank you. I'll leave my computer and go to the kitchen.ReplyDelete
You're welcome :-)Delete
everything sounds delicious. I am so tempted to get an instant pot. I do use my regular pressure cooker.ReplyDelete
I don't know how much room you have to store things in your kitchen, but if I had a pressure cooker I think I'd pass on a similar appliance.Delete
How fun to share cooking tips and recipes with your son!ReplyDelete
He must of been brought up, knowing his way around the kitchen, Good Mama!
All of my boys know how to cook, but none of them care to bake, because it's too precise.Delete
That does sound very good and soup is on my menu for today. Another cold gray rainy one here.ReplyDelete
Here's to soup. I hate extended strings of gloomy weather!Delete
That sounds like a great soup. I don't like lentils unless they cook up with other things like beans. We love Mexican spices so this would be good for us.ReplyDelete
I make a chicken tortilla soup that is a favorite.
I've never thought about pairing lentils and beans. Must look into it.Delete
Sounds yummy and nothing is better than soup on these cold dreary days!!ReplyDelete
I used to only cook soup in the cold weather. Now it shows up all year round, but it really IS best when it's dreary outside.Delete
That sounds lovey, Mexican lentils, I love lentils.ReplyDelete
Lentils are one of my faves, too.Delete
Too yummy for a picture is the best praise.ReplyDelete
I really need to be better at documenting my life if I want to be a serious blogger :-)Delete
Soup is perfect for a cold gloomy day, always hits the spot. This one sounds so yummmily dellicious, it's making my mouth water. Thanks for sharing your recipe for this.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
