Skinny Pressure Cooker Vegetable Soup

I designed this dish to be really adaptable to what you have on hand – as well as budget friendly.

This soup can be made with freezer vegetables, saving you a lot of money and time chopping to prep.

We really went for as much flavor as possible without using expensive ingredients, gluten, and kept it vegan – so you can feel good about feeding your family this tasty soup!

While this recipe is vegan, this soup is a knockout with our Wine Grilled Cheese – perfect to dunk in the soup!

Or you can serve it alongside our roasted cauliflower steaks with red pepper sauce, or The Best Air Fried Mushrooms!

How to Make Instant Pot Vegetable Soup

To make this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  1. Frozen mixed vegetables – The blend of okra, bell peppers, onion, and green beans add a variety of flavors and textures to the soup, making it more interesting and delicious.
  2. Nutritional yeast – The savory and cheesy flavor of nutritional yeast adds depth to the soup and makes it more satisfying.
  3. Minced garlic – Garlic adds a pungent and flavorful punch to the soup, enhancing its overall taste.
  4. Sofrito – The blend of onions, peppers, and herbs in sofrito brings a burst of fresh flavors to the soup, making it more vibrant and tasty.
  5. Chickpeas – The meaty and hearty texture of chickpeas adds substance to the soup, making it more filling and satisfying.
  6. Vegetable broth – The broth serves as the base of the soup, adding depth and richness to the flavors of the other ingredients.
  7. Diced tomatoes – Tomatoes add a sweet and tangy flavor to the soup, while their acidity helps balance the other flavors.
  8. Italian herbs seasoning blend – The mix of oregano, basil, and other herbs in this blend add a classic and comforting flavor to the soup, making it more familiar and enjoyable.

      Tips and Tricks to Perfect Instant Pot Vegetable Soup

      How to store leftovers. Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days. Reheat to piping hot when reserving. Leftover soup can be frozen for up to four months.

      Make it keto. Keeping a keto diet can be tricky – especially with vegetables. To make it easier, we’re rounding up vegetables to use (in moderation), and vegetables with a higher starch and carb content to avoid if you’re trying to keep a keto or low carb diet.

      The following vegetables are keto approved:

      • Onion (stick to 1/2 onion as it is sugary, so use in moderation)
      • Garlic (again, moderate amount)
      • Celery
      • Okra
      • Green Beans
      • Tomatoes (in moderation – use tomatoes that have not added any sugar)
      • Jicama
      • Asparagus
      • Broccoli
      • Zucchini
      • Cauliflower
      • Cabbage
      • Bell Peppers

      The following vegetables are higher in sugar/starch content and shouldn’t be used if keeping a low carb diet:

      • Corn
      • Soybeans
      • Lentils
      • Peas
      • Quinoa
      • Beans
      • Chickpeas

      Recipe FAQ’s

      Do I force release soup or let naturally release?

      It can be tricky to know whether to let the pressure in your instant pot disperse – for this recipe, we let the steam vent (be careful turning the vent release and always have hands and face away from vent) using a forced release – but you can use natural release (just wait 15 minutes for pressure to all dissipate.)
