Instant Pot vegetable minestrone soup

Vegetable soups are not only hearty, they’re so versatile. I love making vegetable soups because I can load them up with whatever vegetables I have on hand.

For this Instant Pot vegetable soup with pasta, I loaded my Instant Pot with fresh green beans, zucchini, cabbage, carrots, celery, onion and spinach. I also added some small shell pasta to bulk up the soup even more.

This soup came together lightening fast in the Instant Pot, and the vegetables were nice and soft like they had been simmering for hours.

Please Note

The Instant Pot needs to come to pressure before the cooking time starts, similar to an oven that needs to preheat. The cooking time doesn’t actually start until pressure builds, which can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes, sometimes longer depending on how full the pot is and how much liquid there is inside. Once it reaches pressure the Instant Pot will beep, and the cook time will begin to count down. Please, make sure to consider that extra time when planning your meal.
