I actually surprised myself with this one. It was just one of those recipes where you’re clearing out your fridge. I wasn’t expecting anything fantastic to come out of this. But WOW, this soup seriously tastes even better than it looks. Try this! It’s a great option if you’re watching your weight, because as I mentioned above it’s super low in calories for a generous portion. Plus I find that soups always make me feel full faster. There are tons of different veggies in here, offering not only a variety of flavour, but also a variety of nutrients. This Instant Pot vegetable soup has a ton of Vitamins A & C, and a fair bit of iron.
Now to prepare this super easy Instant Pot vegetable soup with quinoa.
Just chop up all your veggies. Turn on your Instant Pot to the sauté function. Then add a couple of tablespoons of water or broth, and your all powerful trio of onion, carrot and celery into your pot, and sauté until softened. (You may need to add more water to prevent sticking as you go.) This veggie combo is a great way to start MANY soups or stews. Also refereed to as a “mirepoix“, or the holy trinity.
Once your holy trinity is softened, add all remaining ingredients, give it a stir, and close the lid. Don’t forget to set the valve to the sealing position! Then set your timer, and walk away. 🙂
Once the timer is complete, you may quick release, and open the lid once the pressure is released. Serve with extra black pepper if desired, and enjoy!
I’d love to hear your feedback on this one. I’m so happy with the results and amazing flavour combination. This will very likely become a staple recipe in this healthy kitchen of mine. 🙂
