Pressure Cooker Vegetable Soup

I love my pressure cooker! I can use one pot to cook a whole meal and just close the lid, lock it, and go play with my son until dinner is ready. I don’t have to stir anything or watch for water to boil.

My husband loves soup and he has been working hard so I decided to make him a big pot of vegetable soup this week. I used mushrooms, white beans, peas, carrots, and chickpeas, but you can change the ingredients as much as you want. I also used garlic-flavored vegetable broth. If you use regular broth, you may want to add garlic to the recipe.

Here is the recipe:

Pressure Cooker Vegetable Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2-3 TBSP olive oil
  • 12oz white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 can (15oz) white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 bag frozen peas and diced carrots
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

Directions:

  1. Add olive oil, onion, peppers, and celery to the pressure cooker. Set to sauté. Sauté until the onion is translucent.
  1. Add mushrooms and sauté until they are softened.
  1. Add white beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, peas, and carrots. Stir in broth and seasoning.
  1. Press cancel on the pressure cooker and place the lid on the cooker. Set the valve to sealing.
  1. Set the pressure cooker to cook for 5 minutes, using the manual or pressure cook setting. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, then vent to release the remaining pressure.
