An intense and hearty soup made with andouille sausage, lentils, and chopped vegetables, easily cooked in your Instant Pot!



  • 2 andouille sausage
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 C chopped mushrooms
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 C uncooked lentils
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes
  • 3 C chicken broth


  1. Turn the Instant Pot on Saute and heat 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add the sausage once the pot is hot and brown on both sides. While the sausage is browning, chop the vegetables and add each (onions, carrots, and mushrooms) to the pot once they are ready.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot (lentils through broth). Cover the Instant Pot, turn the valve to sealing, and cook the soup for 20 minutes on high pressure.
  3. Quick release the pressure. Remove the sausage from the pot and slice into 1/2 inch pieces. Return the chopped sausage to the pot and serve immediately.
