We’re still in the colder months, so that means a whole lot of soup. However, cold months often mean lower energy and not wanting to get up off the couch and make a proper dinner. Soups take some time if we’re being honest, but thanks to the Instant Pot it takes less than 30-minutes to make a rich, hearty dinner.

Feel free to swap some of your favorite seasonal vegetables in the soup, add beans, or a different variety of rice. Get creative and have fun with it! Because that’s what is supposed to go on in the kitchen right?

Also topped this dish with crispy mushrooms. Fried in just a bit of oil and finished with sprinkle of flaky sea salt. I highly recommend to finish this soup with a bit of lemon zest. Brightens up the heartiness of the dish and adds an extra punch of flavor!

  4. Season soup to your desired taste with salt and pepper. Serve and top with crispy mushrooms, grate over a bit of lemon zest, and freshly ground pepper. Serve with crusty bread to get the ultimate experience.

    The picture shows kale or some leafy green in the soup, but it’s not in the recipe. What green is it, and what step do you suggest adding it in at if we want to include it? Thanks! 🙂

      good catch!! I recommend kale (specifically tucson, but any variety works) and would add it in 5 min. before cooking time is done!
