So I have dove into the use of my instant pot quite a lot lately! Although it’s wonderful for so many different types of dishes, I will have to admit my favorite thing for it is soup! Soup is just one of my favorite things, but soup doesn’t always feel pleasing unless it’s simmered a long time and blended all of its wonderful flavors together.
But with the instant pot, you don’t have to wait two hours for sumptious soup that tastes like its been stewing all day. You literally can pressure cook it for 7 minutes and it tastes like something you would get at a restaurant!
Now, one of my favorite soups of all time is vegetable soup. It just reminds me of home and always makes me feel cozy! It is storming here today, so I decided to whip some up for lunch! After tasting how glorious it is, I decided I would share it with you all!
Now this is a meatless version because honestly its so delicious I don’t think it needs it! It tastes like old fashioned, what your grandma would make you vegetable soup! However, it only takes 7 minutes to cook! You heard me, 7 minutes!
Lets get to it so you can get cooking!
Easy Instant Pot Vegetable Soup
What you will need:
- 2 cans of mix vegetables
- 1 can seasoned lima beans
- 1 can tomatoes, okra, and corn mix
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 can french onion soup
- 1 box of beef broth
- 2 stalks celery (diced)
- 1/2 onion (diced)
- 1 tbsp garlic (minced)
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp celery seed
Drain all of your cans and pour inti instant pot. Dice celery and onion and add in. Toss in minced garlic, dry seasonings, Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth. Stir everything well!
Put on instant pot lid and make sure to set to “SEAL”. If you do not seal, it won’t pressurize! Then hit manual mode for 7 minutes! It will take some time to pressurize and then you will see the cook time on the front screen!
Once it’s done, quick release the pressure and wait until all of the pressure is released! You will feel tension if its not complete! Omce finished, taste and adjust according to your personal taste! (It was perfect for us).
It’s best served with fresh cornbread, grilled cheeses, or good old fashioned saltine crackers! Now it may seem like an odd set of ingredients, but this is what I have gotten perfected over the last two years! It is the perfect vegetable soup! If you want to make it completely vegetarian, you can use vegetable stock instead! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Happy homemaking!
