I know tomorrow is Christmas Eve so many of you are currently knee deep in holiday cookies, last minute gift shopping, and what not. However, I figured I’d go ahead and get this Instant Pot Vegetable soup recipe over to you now so that you have it for after the holidays when you are feeling burned out on sugar and need a few vegetables in your life.

I’m been a little nervous about sharing an instant pot recipe because I realize not all of you own one but it’s become a constant staple in my house over the last 6 months so I felt like it was finally time to share some of the recipes I’ve been making with it. I love using the Instant pot for this soup recipe because the end result is super flavorful without having to cook it on the stove for hours.

How Can I Add Flavor to my vegetable soup?

To add flavor to this vegetable soup, I’ve used Bob’s Red Mill organic farro to give it a little more texture, protein, and heartiness. I wanted to make this recipe suitable for all seasons so I’ve used dried spices and canned fire roasted tomatoes to bulk up the flavor. I also finish the soup with some grated salty cheese (such as vegetarian Parmesan) and red pepper flakes.
