With fall here and winter on the way, the days are getting cooler, which means it’s almost time for warm hearty soups and soup exchanges. While I love soups, I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen cooking them. That’s why I use my Instant Pot. Not only does it make soups easily in one pot, it makes them faster too, in just a fraction of the time it takes to cook on the stove top. I can have a homemade dinner on the table quickly even on the busiest days. Here are 15+ of the best instant pot soup recipes that you’ll want to make over and over again.
Why cook instant pot meals?
- Easy to make – Everything is cooked in one pot. You might have to chop items on a cutting board, but you’re not using multiple pots and pans.
- Saves time – The Instant Pot has many features but is commonly used as a pressure cooker. This cuts down the time it takes to cook foods, making for faster meals, which is a godsend when everyone is hungry.
- Save money – You can make lots of meals with it to use up extra meat and leftover vegetables. Opt for you and the family to eat in instead of out.
- Variety – The Instant Pot can cook nearly everything. It does well cooking meat dishes like pulled pork and stews but can also cook pasta and vegetables.
- Easy to clean – The Instant Pot is easy to clean. Just wash the inner pot and the lid and wipe down the exterior. It’s ready to put away or use again.
