Instant Pot Golden Turmeric Lentil Soup

We both really loved this soup. It had such a great flavor. The lentils dissolved away but added to this soup’s rich color. It didn’t hurt either that the weather had been cold and windy. It definitely has felt like winter here. This soup kept us warmed through though. This one is going to be getting made often! Soup is so easy in the IP.
