Healthful Lentil SoupSo, this kitchen contraption known as a pressure cooker has become a pretty popular thing these days. It makes food super-fast, which is great when you are always on the run. It’s also perfect for that one recipe that would normally take 7-8 hours to cook, but you just don’t have that time and still crave the meal. Lentil soup is perfect this time of year.
