Instant Pot Minestrone Soup
A large pot of veggie soup for the entire week
We are officially in soup season and it’s finally below 60 here in Los Angeles, so trust me when I say I am ready for all things warm and cozy. This veggie soup is one of my favorites to make on a busy weeknight. It’s made in the instant pot and ready to enjoy in 20-25 minutes.
This veggie soup is jam packed with protein, veggies and is swimming in a hearty tomato broth. Add in some tortellini or noodles to make this a bit more filling. This recipe makes a LARGE pot of soup, so be prepared to freeze some for later in the month or bring it with you f
Everything you’ll need to make instant pot minestrone soup
Who else remembers the delicious endless bowls of soup and the buttery breadsticks from Olive Garden? I used to frequent there as a kid with my family. This instant pot reminds me of the minestrone from there. It’s made with just a few simple ingredients but is jam packed with nutrients.
- Veggies: this instant pot is going to be jam packed with bell peppers, onion, carrots, zucchini, peas, tomatoes, black beans, and cauliflower rice, may sub cauliflower.
- Broth: the veggies are simmered in a broth made with tomato sauce, vegetable broth and water.
- Flavor: add a wonderful flavor boost with Italian seasoning, onion powder, and chili flakes for a little kick.
- Noodles: what’s a minestrone soup without noodles? I like to use shell pasta, but you can use whatever shape you’d like!
