Printable Recipe

Serves: 4-6 Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 7-8 minutes (PLUS time to come to pressure)
Natural release: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 large stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 large carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (red or white onion)
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • Sea salt & black pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 lb. red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 whole bay leaves
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 c. baby kale, roughly chopped
  • 2 T. fresh lime juice

Directions:

  1. Add olive oil to the Instant Pot and select the “Sauté” function. Add garlic, celery, carrots, red onion, garlic powder, and chili powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
  2. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and vegetables start to turn golden brown, approximately 4-5 minutes. Add broth and stir to combine, scrapping any brown bits off the bottom of the pot in the process. Turn the unit off.
  3. Add potatoes, bay leaves, and chopped tomatoes to the pot. Add lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 3 minutes.
  4. When cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.
  5. Remove lid and discard the bay leaves. Stir in baby kale and lime juice, and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
  6. Stir to combine and serve immediately.

Enjoy!

  1. I may try this today, since it’s a freezing precip day; perfect for staying in with a new soup recipe. I’ll have to use dehydrated veggies and chicken bouillon, i.e., what’s in the cupboard, but this is why they are in the cupboard. 🙂
