INSTANT POT MINESTRONE SOUP RECIPE

Now that’s it’s fall I think it’s safe to say that it is officially soup season! Soup along with pumpkin recipe are my absolute favorite this time of year.Β 

There is nothing more comforting then a big bowl of soup with some crusty bread to dip in it, or even bread bowls! My family eats soup year round even during the summer, but I know some like to save all the soups for Fall and Winter.

It’s no secret that I am a fan of minestrone soup. I’ve got this traditional minestrone soup recipe on the blog, or there is this version with tortellini in it.

I love the tomato broth loaded with all the veggies, and seasonings. It’s a healthier soup for this time of year and when you make it in the Instant Pot, it literally takes just minutes to make. Besides all the chopping of course πŸ™‚Β 

The hardest thing about making minestrone soup is all the chopping involved. You need chopped carrots, celery, onion, and zucchini. The rest is just opening cans and adding some seasonings.Β 

It’s a fairly easy soup with simple ingredients that anyone of any cooking skill could make.Β

How to make Minestrone Soup in the Instant Pot

Start with chopping all the vegetables. You’ll need 1 large carrot, 1 stalk of celery, 1 small zucchini, and half an onion. Be sure to cut the pieces fairly small so they will be tender and softened in the short cook time.Β 

To help with the carrots, get some baby carrots and slice them thin. Baby carrots are easy to use because they are already peeled and they are a smaller size so you just have to slice them. I like to cut my celery stalk in half (the long ways down the middle) and then slice it thin.Β 

Saute the veggies in the Instant Pot liner with olive oil. After about 5 minutes when they are softened add in all the other ingredients:

  • 2 can vegetable broth
  • 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
  • petite diced tomatoes
  • great norther beans or any white bean
  • light red kidney beans
  • salt, basil, parsley, oregano
  • small shell pasta

Add that all in and give it a good stir. Put the lid on with the valve in the ‘sealed’ position and let it cook for 6 minutes. Remember that it takes about 10 minutes for it to come to pressure.Β

Serve with some parmesan cheese and crusty bread for dipping! Yummy.Β 

I hope you love this recipe like my family does! If you don’t have an Instant Pot or pressure cooker then make this traditional minestrone soup that is made on the stove top.Β

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced carrots (about 1 large carrot)
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced celery (about 1 large celery piece)
  • 1/2 cup chopped zucchini (about 1 small zucchini)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed (or 1 tablespoon garlic paste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 can (14.5 oz each) vegetable broth
  • 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz) great northern beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 can (15 oz) light red kidney beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 cup small shell pasta
Instructions
  1. Push the sautΓ© button on the Instant Pot. Add the olive oil, carrots, celery, zucchini, onion, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the Instant Pot liner. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes to get the veggies softened. Add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds longer. Turn off the sautΓ©. 

  2. Add the remaining ingredients into the Instant Pot, stir together and cover with the lid. Set the knob to to the 'sealed' position. Press the 'soup' button or the 'manual' button and set the time for 6 minutes. 

  3. It takes about 10 minutes to come to pressure and then it will cook for the 6 minutes. 

  4. When done, do a quick release on the valve. Let the steam and pressure out. Take the lid off and stir the soup. Serve with shredded parmesan cheese on top if wanted. 

  5. Leftover store well in the fridge for a few days. The pasta tends to soak up the liquid once it's refrigerated so you may have to add a tiny amount of water or broth to it. 

Recipe Notes

If you like more of a tomato taste in your minestrone soup, use a can of crushed tomatoes in place of the tomato sauce.

Β 

This soup is very versatile. If you don't like the beans listed feel free to use whichever beans you prefer. Add more or less seasonings, or add different seasonings based on preference.Β 

Β 

You want to use a small sized pasta. The small shells work great, or a mini sized pasta would work, elbow pasta, and even the medium sized shell pasta would work as well.Β

      January 2, 2019 at 4:37 pm I use the smaller 6 QT IP for this recipe and it works great. My only concern with doubling the recipe for a larger IP is that there may be too much liquid/stuff for it. I've never tried it so I can't say for sure, but it may work just fine!

      January 2, 2019 at 4:38 pm For what it's worth, I think there would be plenty for 4 men without doubling the recipe. Serve it with a side of garlic bread, cornbread, or some type of roll and it's a pretty hearty meal.

    January 10, 2019 at 12:18 pm Anyone try this with gluten free pasta? Wondering how it would hold up, would it get mushy later on and make for not so good left overs?

    January 10, 2019 at 4:47 pm This is the best thing I have made in my instant pot yet! So good and so easy! I sautΓ©ed a 1/2 lb of sausage in the pot before I sautΓ©ed the veggies. I also added two bay leaves and a splash of Worcestershire. I only had fire roasted diced tomatoes so I used those as well. Since my husband is gluten free I made the pasta and added that separately after cooking, I was scared for the pasta to turn to mush. I love how easy and adaptable this recipe is. Thank you so much for posting. I will be madding this again for sure.

    January 29, 2019 at 9:23 pm Is it the same directions if you were going to use a crock pot? If not how do I go about using a crock pot instead?

    February 8, 2019 at 3:47 pm Can you substitute beef broth for the vegetable broth? There is a place here who makes the best minestrone soup and they use a beef broth and it tastes amazing
