Lentil Soup

Mmmm lentil soup quick, perfect for dinner.  Once again I utilized my pressure cooker and we had soup in less then 10 minutes.  The recipe called for Dijon style mustard, but we adore the newest sweet and spicy mustard from Trader Joe's so I used it.  Amazing flavor the night I made it; however, the next day it had lost it's umph.  So this is an eat it all on the day made meal.
