Instant Pot Vegetable Soup Recipes

You can use your Ninja Foodi pot to make any and all of these too. A Crockpot Express is fine too, they all work the same basically. Are you obsessed with your multi cooker “quick pot” too??

We have since we first got ours over 2 years ago. Ok so every once and a while I get on a healthy kick and want something loaded with veggies.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

Pressure Cooking Vegetable Soup

Our Instant Pot minestrone soup does the trick on those days. I am talking this recipe is CHEAP to make!! If you have a vegetable garden it costs next to nothing too. We do and it’s fun to know that the diced tomatoes, bell pepper, and green beans we grew were going into our mouths for dinner.

Yes you could use items such as frozen corn and other mixed vegetables but fresh is always best. Add some salt and pepper and chicken broth (or vegetable broth if you want a vegetarian pressure cooker soup) and you’re set. It’s gluten free too!

But what if you want a heartier meal??

  • Well our pressure cooker vegetable beef soup will do the trick! We added ground beef but using a pound of spicy sausage would take this healthy soup to the next level for sure.

I used to use my slow cooker for soups all the time but not now! Yes I still have tons of crockpot recipes but I don’t always remember to prep everything in the morning. That is when my Instant Pot pressure cooker comes in oh so handy.

You can just throw everything in, set to high pressure, quick release when it beeps and the cook time is less than 20 minutes total. Before I had to brown the meat on the stovetop, or get cooked chicken to add it to my pot in the morning. Not anymore.

Instant Pot Soup with Vegetables

We will round out our list here with this easy Instant Pot vegetable soup that is like pasta fagioli! 

  • As with any recipe feel free to load up the vegetables you love, and omit those you don’t care for. Canned beans can be added as well as they are just being warmed and softened up a bit.
  • That won’t change the timing. If you like your noodles more al dente just set for 2 minutes to pressure cook with all the other ingredients.

In all of these you could add a bit of meat of course. Pancetta, leftover ham diced up small or some chicken is great to amp up the protein. If you don’t eat meat at all just leave that step out and use vegetable broth instead.

Recipe for this Instant Pot pasta fagioli is below. But here is a quick step by step;

  • Put Instant Pot on saute (brown on Crockpot Express) add about 1 tbsp of olive oil, then your pancetta, onions and garlic.
    • Saute for 2-4 minutes or until meat is done.
    • Turn pot off/cancel. Scrape bottom to get stuck on pieces of pancetta to loosen.
  • Add carrots, celery, tomatoes with the juice in can, drained beans, and broth over entire thing. Stir.
  • Stir in thyme, basil, salt and pepper. Add bay leaves if desired now. Stir.
  • Close lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 5 minutes. Do a quick release at the end.
    • If adding noodles change cook time to 3 minutes above.
    • Do a quick release, add uncooked noodles, submerge into liquid, and set for 2 minutes high pressure.
    • Then quick release.

When this is done a bit of shredded or grated parmesan cheese is to die for. Serve with some garlic bread and done!

How to save leftover soup. You may need help with this if you have food that has gone uneaten. I hate wasting food so I am all about saving what is sitting there for lunch the next day. This is easy but you do need to make sure it cools entirely before transferring to another dish or container.

I like airtight containers for liquid meals like this. It will stay good for a few days or much longer if you throw it into the fridge. To reheat move it to a microwave safe bowl and heat for about 1 minute, stir and then another 30 seconds or so until it’s hot enough. Add parmesan to the top in the last step if you want to add YUM.

Any and all of our vegetarian Ninja Foodi soup recipes are delicious even though we do eat meat.
