Quick, easy and tasty Instant Pot Soup Recipes!

by | May 20, 2020 | Good Food, Things we love | 0 comments

Soup… It’s one of my favourite dishes… Minestrone, gazpacho, spicy butternut, meaty bean… I don’t play favourites. Plus, it’s the easiest way to load up on veggies, especially during winter. Now that we have an Instant Pot, I can make soup in under an hour! So, today I’m sharing our 3 favourite Instant Pot Soup Recipes – Vegetable edition and they are even vegan-friendly too.

A classic made with coconut milk…

To make the fresh Basil Pesto:
  • 60 g of fresh basil
  • 30 g of grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • the zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp of lemon juice
  • 35 g toasted pine nuts, cashews or almonds – whatever you have or can afford
  • 118 ml of olive oil

Add everything (except the oil) to a blender or food processor. (Our baby bullet works best.) Give it a quick blend just to “introduce” everyone to each other. Slowly add the olive oil and keep blending till all the ingredients start to combine with the oil. Taste your pesto and add some more garlic or lemon if you like.

* The pesto should last for a week when stored in an airtight container in the fridge. It can also be frozen. An ice cube tray makes good pesto portions, just remember to transfer the frozen pesto cubes to another freezer airtight container or bag.

Let me know what you think of these Instant Pot Soup Recipes and which one you’re most eager to try! Also, feel free to share your own recipe. I’m always looking for easy, yummy dishes to try.
