Hey there Instant Pot fans! We have another Instant Pot Soup Recipe for you! YUMMMO!
All our recipes are nut-free and gluten-free. We also have vegan recipes too! This one however, does have cheese! If you are dairy-free you could sub in your own fav cheese!
This soup was created by adapting our Instant Pot Potato Leek Soup! Sometimes you just need a little cheese.
This soup is perfect for taking in a thermos for lunch. In fact, I often take it to the soccer field!
Remember, I’ve been working on recipes that are easy to transport so I have some yummy stuff to eat at the soccer field.
I did use an immersion blender to puree this soup. I did it right in the Instant Pot.
You can always take the soup out little by little and put into a blender or a food processor.
Whatever works for you! Let’s make this easy! Right?!
