INSTANT POT BEAN SOUP 

Instant Pot soups and chilis are some of my favorites to make for my family. 

This Instant Pot Bean Soup is a quick vegan, weeknight meal.

I love being able to add the ingredients in to one pot and letting the pressure cooker do its job. 

We often rotate between Instant Pot Turkey Chili, Instant Pot Turkey Taco Pasta and Instant Pot Vegetable Mac and Cheese

Today’s Instant Pot Bean Soup is inspired by The Best Vegetable Bean Soup I shared a few months ago.

I just adore soups with vegetables and beans that are light and but still hearty. 

Today’s soup has the option to add lemon juice to sweeten the soup a bight.

I also like adding in fresh herbs like dill and parsley. 

For a creamier soup you can stir in cream or half and half and add a good sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS INSTANT POT BEAN SOUP?

WHITE BEANS: White beans are the star of the soup. I used white cannelini beans but chickpeas would also work. 

POTATO: I added 1 large Russet potato- peeled and diced. You can use any potato type you like that is equal to about 1 cup of diced potato. 

VEGETABLES: Carrots, celery and onion are the vegetables I used in this soup. Other vegetables that work nicely are bell peppers, diced tomatoes or green beans.

SPICES: Spices add flavor to this soup. I used Italian seasoning and turmeric. If you don’t like turmeric you can skip that. Other spices I like adding are paprika and cayenne pepper for spice. 

BROTH: I added in a store-bought broth but you can also use a homemade vegetable broth

LEMON JUICE: Adding the lemon juice is optional but I really like the slightly sweet flavor it adds to the soup.

This soup will store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.

If you want to freeze the soup let it cool completely and then you can freeze it in an airtight container for up to 3 months. 

CAN I MAKE THIS BEAN SOUP ON THE STOVE?

Yes you can! You would start by heating olive oil in a pot over medium heat.

Add in the onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes.

Add in the vegetable broth, potatoes, carrots and celery and simmer until the potatoes are soft. 

Once the potatoes are soft you can add in the spinach and stir until wilted.
