Instant Pot Soup Recipes are some of my favorite meals in the winter. It’s so easy to use the pressure cooker to make these soups. Are you looking for a new soup recipe to make? We have this amazing list of recipes we think you are going to love.
If you are new to the Instant Pot you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. I know when I was new I wasn’t sure if what I was making would turn out good or if the lid would drastically blow off into the ceiling. 🙂
The good news is that I have never had a ceiling disaster happen, and the Instant Pot has exceeded my wildest dreams in the kitchen. Using a pressure cooker has become my new favorite way to make dinner, and is followed very closely behind to my slow cooker.
Easy Instant Pot Soup Recipes
I love making soup in the pressure cooker. In the winter I crave soups and chilis all of the time and I’m always adding them to my weekly meal plan. The good news is that my family feels the same way so I never get any pushback when I am making a delicious soup. The easier the recipe the higher the chances it is going to get made.
Soup Serving Options
Traditionally soup is served in a soup bowl, but there are a few other options you can also consider when serving soup to change things up and add a little flare.
- serve soup in a bread bowl
- a squash bowl
- in a tea cup
- mason jar
Side Dishes to Consider Serving with Soup
When I make my soups I always like to add a little side dish that will pair well with whatever soup I am creating. Here are a few side dishes you may or may not have thought of.
- Roasted vegetables
- Bread for dipping
- Cheesy Garlic Bread
Do you like to serve soups all alone or do you serve your soup with a side dish? If you have a favorite side dish I haven’t listed above, consider leaving a comment below and if it fits we may update and add it to this post.
How to Use an Instant Pot
If you are just beginning to use your pressure cooker, we have a few suggestions to make things go smooth and easy. First and foremost, make sure you read the directions before getting started. Just grab a cup of coffee and start perusing the pages. You’ll find some great tips and tricks, but most importantly safety guidelines and features.
No matter what, make sure you are familiar with what I believe are the most used settings:
- slow cooker
- manual mode
- sauté mode
You also want to become familiar with the venting that can be different on each recipe. Some recipes will call for manual release and some will call for a natural release. Familiarize yourself with these terms and with your pressure cooker before you began any recipe.
