  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil, or more to taste

  • 5 medium carrots, chopped

  • 2 medium leeks, diced

  • 5 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 8 cups chicken broth

  • ½ cup miso paste

  • 8 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 (2 inch) piece ginger root, grated

  • 1 dash Sriracha sauce, or to taste

  • ½ head napa cabbage, torn into pieces

  • 1 head baby bok choy, cleaned and sliced


  1. Pour grapeseed oil into an electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot). Add carrots, leeks, shiitake mushrooms, and onion; cook and stir on the Sauté setting until softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper; add to the pot. Pour in chicken broth. Seal and cook on the Soup setting for 7 minutes. Release pressure naturally for 10 minutes according to the manufacturer's instructions. Cover the vent with a dishtowel and release remaining pressure with the quick-release method.

  3. Remove chicken thighs and shred with 2 forks on a cutting board; return to the pot and add miso paste, garlic, soy sauce, ginger, and Sriracha. Cook and stir on the Sauté setting until miso paste dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in cabbage and bok choy; cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
