This easy Instant Pot vegetable beef soup is amazing! It costs less than $20 for the whole meal which feeds all five of us, it’s healthy, and the kids love it too! Done in just 20 minutes and a nutritious pressure cooker dinner that is complete as is or serve it with a side of bread for added goodness.
Oh yes the Instant Pot is my newest obsession, and it has made it much easier for me to make healthy family dinners on a regular basis. I have many Instant Pot recipes on my blog and continue to add more and more each time I cook a meal for my family, but this Instant Pot vegetable beef soup was a real hit tonight! Served with a side of garlic rolls and we were set. Super hearty soup you could make with ground beef like I did here, or make a vegetarian soup too. Here’s the recipe. (affiliate links present, originally published 1/17)
Made with fresh vegetables you can really add what you like and omit the rest. I used what looked fresh and wasn’t super expensive at the store and literally the entire meal including the garlic rolls was about $20. It fed all 5 of us with lunch for 2 left over for the next day, I call that a major win! I will say it took a while to get our kids to eat and really love vegetables but now they’d prefer them over a steak any day. This easy Instant Pot recipe is great for lunch, dinner, or even a potluck. If you don’t have this amazing appliance yet you can find the Instant Pot I use here...you won’t regret buying it I promise!
If you’re looking for a vegetarian Instant Pot soup this works as well. Just omit the ground beef and substitute the broth for vegetable broth.
You just chop all your veggies, and then put your Instant Pot on saute and cook your ground beef with your onions and garlic until the meat is cooked. Then add your veggies, diced tomatoes and broth and push the soup button. If you like your veggies soft in your vegetable soup then leave it as is which will cook for 30 minutes. This is how my kids like it, though I prefer a bit more al dente and 20 minutes is perfect for me. You can adjust the soup time setting. Just press soup when everything is in and then press the – sign until you get to the time you want. If you like your veggies a bit firmer adjust to 15 and check it then. Always make sure to release the pressure / steam valve at the top before opening the lid and allow all the steam to emerge before lifting the lid.
This is what you’ll need to make this easy Instant Pot Vegetable Beef Soup
