This was really good. I chopped up a few tomatoes and added them at the end. I also didn't use onion soup mix because I was too lazy to go to the store and get it. It was still great. I'll definitely make it again.

2 cups red lentils
1 onion, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Place lentils into a pressure cooker, and cover with about 1 inch of water. Add onion and oil, cook for 10 minutes and then turn off heat and let set for 10 minutes.

Place lentil mixture, cumin, and pepper into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.

Transfer pureed soup into a large stock pot and return to heat. Right as soup is ready to boil add onion soup mix, stirring until well mixed. Simmer until soup has a thick creamy consistency.

Prior to serving add lemon juice and chopped parsley for a little flavor and garnish.
