Instant Pot® Vegan Cabbage Detox Soup
Reviewer KGora says, "Healthy, nutrient filled soup in no time. I added a whole diced tomato from the garden in place of canned. Cook time was spot on. Good simple detox soup." At just 67 calories per serving, this Instant Pot soup recipe has been made by over a thousand home cooks.
Instant Pot® Spicy Butternut Squash Soup
Reviewer Angie Mahoney says, "By 'spicy,' it means you get warmth from the ginger and curry powder, but it's hard to pinpoint exactly what is making it so delicious. I'd like to add more squash or a potato next time to make it thicker, but this is seriously addictive and so tasty. Made on a snowy day = perfect savory sip." Need we say more?
Keto Instant Pot® Soup (Low Carb)
This keto-friendly recipe is ready in under an hour for a fast, weeknight dinner anytime. Reviewer mattandandysmom says, "This is a very easy and tasty base soup recipe. You could easily turn this into a ham and potato soup, broccoli cheddar, or a creamy veg. The possibilities are endless. I followed this recipe exactly. However, I did use my immersion hand blender after the pressure cooking part was done, before I added the cheese, half n half, and bacon. Excellent recipe."
Instant Pot® Navy Bean and Ham Soup
Reviewer Rebecca says, "This is a really great navy bean soup. My husband asked me to use this recipe in the future—not the one I've been using for more than 30 years!" This classic, comforting soup is made easier in the Instant Pot.
Instant Pot® Double Bean and Ham Soup
It doesn't get easier than this recipe. Simply dump the ingredients into the inner pot and let the pressure cooker do the work. Take it from recipe creator lutzflcat who says, "No pre-soaking beans required. I know it sounds strange, but my mother-in-law always added a can of pork and beans to her homemade bean soup and, seriously, it adds another layer of flavor."
Chicken and Veggie Miso Soup (Instant Pot® Version)
This Japanese take on traditional chicken noodle soup will be a welcome change. Take it from over 50 home cooks who've made it so far. Reviewer Guli Fager says, "Made twice as written and it is easy and so, so good. It takes several days to finish it all and it gets tastier every day. Made with Savoy cabbage because Napa wasn't available and there was no difference in flavor. I have served it with rice noodles, bread — it's good with everything."
Instant Pot® Lasagna Soup
Have some leftover marinara sauce or broken lasagna noodles? Make it a meal with this top-rated Instant Pot soup recipe. Reviewer Dawn Ming-Krupela says, "I'm new to cooking with the Instant Pot, and I love how even the prep is done in the pot prior to setting the pressure cooking feature. Definitely making this again but I can't think of a single thing I would want to add/change."
Instant Pot® Coconut Cream Chicken Noodle Soup
Traditional chicken noodle soup is enhanced with coconut cream and Sriracha hot sauce. Reviewer Smilingrn56 found it to be the perfect cure for the common cold: "Made this soup as I was feeling like I was getting a cold and wanted to try something new. It has a kick and usually I'm not a spicy food fan, but this is a subtle kick at the end of a bite. Cleared my sinuses!"
Potato Soup or Chowder
This thick, warming soup is perfect for chilly winter nights. Reviewer Jody says, "Another fabulous recipe to add to the Instant Pot® repertoire...It tasted really spicy until I added the corn and cheese, then the flavour really leveled out. Do you ever keep tasting something until you've basically had an entire serving?"
Instant Pot® Red Posole
This traditional Mexican soup is made easier thanks to the Instant Pot! Recipe creator bd.weld says, "This recipe uses pork and hominy along with spices and herbs. Feel free to adjust the ingredients to suit your taste. Serve in bowls and add your favorite toppings, such as sliced radishes, shredded cabbage, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, and sliced jalapenos."
Instant Pot® Creamy Cabbage Sausage Soup
"It was absolutely delicious, both my wife and I loved it. Creamy, a little thick, just the right kick from a combination of the sausage and the black pepper," says reviewer skierbob. Onion, pork sausage, potatoes, and cabbage make for a hearty winter soup.
Instant Pot® Creamy Mushroom Soup
Reviewer lutzflcat says, "Smooth, creamy, with a delicate flavor, and the thyme was the perfect herb for this soup. So very, very easy. This soup is good enough to serve to guests. I’m always on the lookout for Instant Pot® recipes, and this is a good one…SAVED!!"
Instant Pot® Spicy Black Bean Soup (Vegan)
This soup can be enjoyed as a main dish or a side dish for a variety of Latin dishes. Reviewer Buckwheat Queen says, "This recipe works perfectly. It's chock full of flavor. You really could just serve the beans as a side dish without puréeing if you wanted. As a soup it was perfect with quesadillas for lunch on a cold afternoon."
Instant Pot® Vegan Vegetable and Barley Soup
This easy soup is an easy way to incorporate more healthy foods into your diet this New Year. Recipe creator Fioa says, "Barley, zucchinis, carrots, tomatoes, and corn combine to make this hearty, versatile, filling vegan soup that is just so easy to make in your Instant Pot®."
Instant Pot® Chicken Posole Verde
Make flavorful posole without laboring over the stove for hours. Reviewer Love2cook32 says, "I have another Posole recipe that I have made many times but I like this one better. I love that it has fresh salsa that goes in it. I top mine with avocado, radishes, shredded cabbage and little cheese."
Instant Pot® Chicken Tortilla Soup
"I used chicken breast and I have to say that it was one of the best chicken tortilla soups that I have tried," says reviewer Dawn Rodriguez. "The chicken was very tender and the mixture of the soup was very tasty. My family even ate the leftovers and THAT says a lot!" The best part about this soup? Everything can be cooked in the same pot, so say goodbye to piles of dirty dishes.
Instant Pot® Lentil and Ham Soup
This hearty soup is loaded with onion, celery, carrots, ham, and lentils. "Made exactly as directed, and it was delicious! I made this earlier in the day, and left it in my Instant Pot until dinner time," says reviewer Kim's Cooking Now. "When it was time to reheat, I turned my IP on saute for a few minutes, then switched to slow cook on high, and it reheated in about 10 minutes, while I boiled some ditalini pasta on the stove to add to it. Even though it was 90 degrees outside, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this!"
Instant Pot® Italian Wedding Soup
You'll never turn back to a can after making this easy Instant Pot version that’s ready in just an hour. Reviewer Diana Moutsopoulos says, "The whole family loved it and it was a lifesaver on a weeknight where I had nothing prepared. I have to admit that I used frozen Ikea chicken meatballs (I added them to the Instant Pot straight from the freezer) and didn't add herbs because I didn't have them, and even so - this soup was PERFECT!"
