Soups & Chili
Silky Smooth Vegan Tomato Bisque
Generally speaking, a bisque is a soup that includes seafood. Here we created a quick, easy, tomato soup recipe that is entirely vegan and made in your blender! The addition of cashew cream make for a super-creamy soup. All natural, raw ingredients make this a nutritarian powerhouse! Don’t forget the croutons!
Instant Pot Black Beans — No Soaking, 5 Flavors!
Use your Instant Pot to take the hassle out of cooking dried beans. And they taste so much better fresh. This recipe makes one jar of beans, the equivalent of one can. It’s just as easy to make four cans if you like. You could even give each jar it’s own ethnic flavor!
Creamy Split Pea Soup with Croutons (Instant Pot)
Growing up poor and Swedish meant I was very familiar with pea soup. This plant-forward recipe is just like Granny used to make. And the restaurant-style croutons mean you have permission to “play with your food”!
Masala Red Lentil and Farro Soup
Garam Masala is a traditional Indian spice whose name is best translated as “warmth.” It is not difficult to find. For authenticity, look for a mix that features cumin, cinnamon and coriander near the top of the ingredient list. If you would prefer this soup to be gluten-free, it is a simple matter to substitute quinoa for the farro. Enjoy!
Souped Up, Healing Congee
Think of congee as the eastern, vegan version of chicken-noodle soup: healing, healthy, hot and soothing!This recipe couldn't be easier or more fresh. The rice is replaced with grains and black beans for a protein boost. Add the fresh ingredients to your Instant Pot in any order. Give it a stir, cook it up, and 90 minutes later you have a hot, nutritious, one-pot meal to warm you from the inside out!

Instant Pot Mushroom, Farro Soup
This is one of my favorite fall flavors! And SOOOO easy! A rich, savory broth, mellowed with caramelized onions, makes the perfect backdrop for fresh mushrooms, dried shiitake mushrooms, and toasted farro! Make it in the Instant Pot or on the stove top. . .and put some of the finished soup in the freezer for a rainy day!
