I have said it about a hundred times before but I surely won’t stop now — I love soup.

I love it from the stove top, the slow cooker, and my latest obsession — Instant Pot soup recipes.

And since there are never too many Instant Pot soups to have in your back pocket this time of year, I’ve gathered up some of my favorites and some on my list to try!

When someone asks me if they need an Instant Pot (and I get asked this a lot!), I will tell them honestly: it’s good for some things, but it’s not great at everything.

But soup?

Hands down my favorite thing to cook in my pressure cooker because it’s so good, and so quick.

I’ve admitted before that I’m a bit of a picky eater, and soup is one of the ways (one of the only ways) that I get a ton of veggies in the whole family. I absolutely love how quickly the Instant Pot cooks veggie-loaded soups and they’re not still half crunchy when you’re ready to eat.

I love how all the flavors in Instant Pot soup recipes blend so well together and how easily it is to add cooked or browned meat (bacon or ground beef or Italian sausage, for example), and not have to dirty an extra pot.

General tips for making Instant Pot Soup recipes:

  • This might seem like an obvious one, but pay attention to the recipes. Different vegetables require different cook times, and even things like the size you cut something can make a big difference in an Instant Pot soup recipe.
  • Don’t overcook the pasta. This is always going to be one of my beefs, but so many recipes cook pasta way too long. If you’re pressure cooking, often 2 or 3 minutes is enough. I like to add pasta afterwards on saute, so that I know when it’s cooked to perfection and there’s no guessing.
  • Add creamy liquids or anything you’ll use to thicken your soup at the end of the cook time, after you’re done pressure cooking. Pressure cookers need thin liquid to build pressure, and you don’t want a starchy, gloopy mess coming out your vent.

      I think you should be able to make most without, but if there are vegetables that cook very quickly, you may want to add them at the end after you release the pressure (like broccoli, etc.).

    Thank you so much for posting all of these soup recipes! I made your Chicken Chili Verde Soup last Wednesday, ate it for two nights, and then handed the leftovers over to my mom who enjoyed them for two more nights. The great thing about soup is the flavors just develop more intensely the more time you let it sit. I’m going to try your Ham and Bean Soup this week. Thanks, again!


    I just love homemade soup. So many ways to change it all up. My favorite is to do a chicken and vegetable soup, add pasta or rice, then add tomato sauce to change it up, or cream. One big pot can make a different soup each time for 3 days out of the week! Eyeballing several of these to try soon. I don’t have an instant pot brand one, it’s an electric pressure cooker xl, but so far most recipes for the instant pot have been working out great. Love it, so much fun! Thank you!
