Easy Instant Pot Lentil Soup

Updated: Feb 24

Today is Friday and you know what that means…no meat all day!

Throughout the season of Lent, Christians abstain from meat on Fridays. This is done out of reverence for Good Friday, the day that Jesus died on the cross.

If having a meatless Friday strikes fear into your heart, take courage! Making your Friday meatless doesn't have to be difficult. Today, I thought I’d share one of our favorite (and super easy!) meatless meals - Instant Pot Lentil Soup. I love lentils, they are super cheap, easy to make and have a really deep, hearty taste.
