Soup is one of my very favorite comfort foods! I love that you can use basically anything in your fridge and you’ll feel full, no matter how much you eat! They’re perfect for busy days, cold days or for feeding crowds. When the Instant Pot burst onto the kitchen scene a few years ago, I squealed with delight! Now my favorite recipes would be even simpler to make! And my go-to is this Instant Pot minestrone soup recipe.
