Poor Leslie is a little under the weather today. She woke up with a bit of a stuffy head and runny nose. I have an idea…Let’s make some homemade chicken soup to cheer her up and help get her back on her feet. Let’s also make it in a few minutes instead of a few hours.  

Will it cure her? History seems to think so.  The first recorded writing of chicken soup as a prescribed cure for the common cold was made by Persian physician Ali Sina Balkhi in the 10th century. Has modern science found any truth to this? Sort of.

In 2000 a study was conducted at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha and chicken soup was put to the test. 

Using blood samples from volunteers, he showed that the chicken soup inhibited the movement of neutrophils, the most common type of white blood cell that defends against infection. Dr. Rennard theorizes that by inhibiting the migration of these infection-fighting cells in the body, chicken soup essentially helps reduce upper respiratory cold symptoms. (learn more)  

Although it is not known whether the changes witnessed in the laboratory have a meaningful effect on people with cold symptoms, at the very least it is a healthy, nutrient filled, hydration boosting, good tasting, comfort food…and that’s good enough for us. 

Chicken Soup that would make Ali Sina Balkhi be proud?

 Homemade chicken noodle soup, one of the most basic of comfort foods. Generation after generation has passed this restorative recipe down and homemade chicken soup made in your kitchen with fresh vegetables on a cold winter day just can’t be beat.  Let’s begin:  

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes under high pressure
Serving Size: around 6 – 10  


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 chicken breasts or about 1 and 1/2 pounds boneless chicken thighs
3 or 4 carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
2 celery stalks with leaves
6 cups Swanson Chicken Stock
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup egg noodles (can substitute more rice)
3/4 cup rice (can substitue more noodles)
2 tablespoons parsley
2 tablespoons lime juice  

Step 1: Ingredient prep: Chop the Vegetables, Brown the chicken

Dice up all of the vegetables into various sizes of your liking.  

Chop the vegetables

 Next, heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium heat and cook the chicken until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove the chicken and set it aside on a plate. We will be dicing it up while the veggies are cooking.  

Step 2: Add the vegetables, rice and noodles

Add the rest of the ingredients

 Add the other 1 tablespoon of oil and all of the vegetables (onions, carrots, celery) to the pot. Cook them for about 2 minutes stirring occasionally. While they are cooking now is a good time to dice up the chicken into small pieces. Now add the broth, bay leaf, parsley, peas, corn, salt, and pepper and scrape up any little stuck bits that may be at the bottom of the pan.  Add the rice and noodles.  

Step 3: Cook under pressure for 8 minutes

Return the chicken to the pressure cooker, lock the lid, and bring the pot to pressure on high heat. Once the pressure cooker has indicated that it is at pressure by releasing a steady steam, immediately reduce heat to the lowest level to maintain this pressure. Cook for 8 minutes.  


 Once the time is up carefully open the lid angled away from you, salt and pepper to taste, serve and be soothed.

In one hand, a take out menu. In the other hand, the refrigerator door…its contents staring back almost as blankly as we are towards them. We want a homemade meal, but also want something quick and simple to make.


I met a new coworker a few weeks ago – her name is Jelena. She’s in charge of making sure that I don’t screw up, so you’d think that we wouldn’t be friends. But just a few minutes into our first conversation, I realized that it is just the opposite. Imagine the personality of a typical auditor, and then reverse it, and that’s Jelena. Ok, it’s not that simple, but the basic gist is that she’s hilarious and I’m only scared of her a little bit. Plus, she makes homemade rye bread and she brought me a loaf last week AND a starter so I can make my own. SCORE!

Of course, with bread, you must have soup. So here is my go-to lentil soup, made quick and easy in the pressure cooker.

Beth, I don’t have a pressure cooker. Those things are terrifying. My grandma used to scare the pants off of us every time she used one.

Don’t worry. While I’m going to try my darndest to convince you that a pressure cooker is an Appliance You Need, I’ll give stovetop instructions too. Do you feel better now? Good. Let’s move on. This soup is ridiculously easy and only requires a few ingredients.

Personally, I find lentils beautiful. Don’t you?

Red lentils break down and give the soup body, while the brown/green lentils stay intact, giving credibility to the fact that this is, indeed, lentil soup. Onions and garlic add flavor, while carrots, potatoes, and rainbow chard bulk it up and add extra nutrition. You can also add celery, but I didn’t have any. Not that Michael minded.

Oh, and spices. Let us not forget the terrific trio of salt, cumin, and smoked paprika. Smoked paprika needs to be in your life if it isn’t already. I don’t mean to tell you what to do, but seriously, go get some and then come back and thank me.

Here is where it gets really exciting. This lentil soup cooks in 3 minutes. Say what? Ok, so technically it takes longer than 3 minutes because first you have to bring the pressure cooker “up to pressure”, or the point at which it does its magic, but once that happens, the Actual Cooking Time  is 3 MINUTES. No joke. From cutting board to ladle in bowl, you can have lentil soup in 20 minutes. Of course, Michael is laughing right now because it took me at least an hour to make this soup, but that’s because I was taking photographs the whole time. You’re welcome.

I’m not going to get all technical on you and tell you all about how pressure cookers work. Because you would get bored, and because I don’t really know. I just know that they cook stuff quickly, and oftentimes better than with other methods, and I like that. A lot. I like it so much that I have two pressure cookers. One is a stovetop model, and it’s the one I cut my teeth on, so to speak. The other is my absolute new favorite appliance, and I got it for my birthday. (Thanks, M & D!) It is called the Instant Pot. Not only is it an electric pressure cooker, but it is also a rice cooker, steamer, slow cooker, stockpot, and YOGURT MAKER (the latest version). It also makes great julienned fries! Just kidding. I’ll share more about this wonder appliance in a later post, but just for fun I’ve included a picture so you can see how much functionality it has and how non-scary it looks


See? Totally safe. And clearly labeled. Ok, so the cooking part is about as simple as it gets. Saute, seal, and cook for 3 minutes. Easy peasy.

With pressure cookers, you have two options. Quick release and natural release. Quick release means you open a vent in the PC that lets steam out gradually until the pressure is released. Natural release means that the cooker cools on its own and the pressure comes down after a bit of a wait. With this soup, I don’t recommend a natural release because the soup will continue to cook while the pressure is released.  And this will invariably mean mushy soup. No good. So, if you do make this in a pressure cooker, use the quick release method. Again, more about pressure cooking basics in an upcoming post, but this is an important detail for this soup.

Once the pressure cooker is safe to open, well, open it! Stir in the rainbow chard – the heat of the soup will immediately wilt the greens. Serve with bread, of course.

Oh, and in case you wondering, a dollop of sour cream took this soup over the top. And now to go make more.



Warm, comforting lentil soup can be in your belly in just 20 minutes start to finish using a pressure cooker.
