  • Start the instant pot in SAUTE mode and heat oil in it. 
  • Add onions and garlic. Mix and saute for 1 minute. 
  • Add carrots, celery and all spices along with thyme. 
  • Add the lentils and broth. Stir it all up. Press Cancel and close the lid with vent in sealing position. 
  • Set the instant pot to SOUP mode for 20 minutes. When the instant pot beeps, release the pressure naturally. Press Cancel. 
  • Add in spinach, lemon juice and sugar. Add some red chili flakes if you like. Stir it all up. Brown Lentil Soup is ready to enjoy!



  • You can also use kale or collard greens. You can use a hand blender if you like. We like it chunky.
  • If you don't have Sumac, skip it. It will still taste delicious.
