Of all the things we love about our Instant Pot, making soup is at the top of the list.
Sure, it’s a pretty easy task to make soup on the stovetop. Sauté your base ingredients, add the aromatics and your liquid of choice, simmer. And simmer. And simmer.
Which is simple, right? But can also be time-consuming. And if there’s one thing everyone seems to need more of these days, it’s time.
That’s where the Instant Pot comes in. Where you’d normally have to simmer for 2-3 hours to get your soup flavors to meld and intensify, the pressure cooker can achieve that in just 20 minutes (give or take) under pressure.
Meats that are added to Instant Pot soups become fall-apart tender in that short time, too. We typically steer clear of chicken breasts in our soups and go for thighs, but pressure cooking makes even those finicky breasts nice and tender!
HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT SOUP?
It’s so simple to make soup in your Instant Pot! It’s just like making it on the stovetop: sauté your base ingredients, add the aromatics and your liquid of choice. But instead of simmering for hours, close the lid, set the timer and walk away. No need to stir or check on it. When the timer goes off, either let the pressure release naturally or use a quick release (follow the instructions if you’re using a recipe).
HOW TO CONVERT SLOW COOKER SOUP RECIPES TO THE INSTANT POT?
This is also typically pretty simple to do. First, the Instant Pot has a slow cooker setting, so you could just make it as-is. If you want to pressure cook it though, we use the 20-minute mark as our go-to timing. Generally, soup ingredients can handle a longer time under pressure, however, so if you have a larger cut of meat going into your soup, such as beef, add more time to make sure everything is as tender as you’d like.
Fortunately, Instant Pot soup recipes are everywhere these days. But sorting through them all takes a bit of effort. Not to worry! We’ve done the sorting and sifting for you.
