Vegan Instant Pot Lentil Soup is the perfect soup recipe to get your fill of veggies! It's loaded with butternut squash, potatoes, carrots, celery, lentils, and kale. Filled with veggies but still super filling from the lentils and potatoes. Cooking in the pressure cooker makes the soup nice and thick and creamy.
