Lentil Spinach Soup

Lentil soup is incredibly easy to make. To quickly make this delicious soup you need  a pressure cooker!!

This soup is flavorful and very nourishing. Its perfect for a cold cloudy winter evenings. For this lentil recipe, I have used Moong Dal (Mung Beans) because it cooks fast and tastes extremely good. 


1 cup Mung beans (moong dal)
1 Carrot, peeled and chopped
2 Celery stalks, chopped
1 large bunch of Spinach, pureed
2 cups of Chicken/ Vegetable Broth
1 clove of Garlic
3 cups of water
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp Butter


  • Pressure cook moong dal, carrot and celery with 3 cups of water upto 3 whistles. Mash it well or use a food processor to puree
  • Heat butter in a heavy large pot and then add garlic. Return pureed moong dal and pureed spinach to the pot; add Chicken/vegetable broth to thin the soup. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes
  • Ladle the soup into large bowls. Garnish with cream (optional) and serve imeediately
