Since we had one last cold snap last week, of course I was in the kitchen making more soup. This was my first attempt at pressure cooker white bean soup. And I passed the bean approval test – my 2-year-old daughter. She loves beans, but only if they’re delicious. And apparently, these are!
The Mistake Everybody Makes…
I love sausage in soups. But here’s the problem. Almost every soup recipe I come across will use the sausage to add flavor to the soup. That’s a great intention, but (in my opinion) it’s actually a total fail. If you boil it for any extended period of time, all the flavor will go into the soup. And then you’re left with flavorless sausage.
Check out the recipe below to see how to retain the crispiness of the sausage without compromising the flavor of the soup.
Pressure Cooker Lentil Soup with Curry and Potatoes
I love soup. No really, I LOVE SOUP! When eating out, I always order a bowl. At home, I’m a big fan of bean soups. I like them simple and delicious. This pressure cooker lentil soup recipe was an instant favorite in our house. It’s incredibly easy to make, yet lacking nothing in flavor. I believe I ate 3 bowls within 24 hours of making it. I only stopped because it ran out.
Who Doesn’t Love A One-Pot Meal?
There are few things as satisfying to me as creating an amazing meal without having to destroy the kitchen. I guess that’s part of my current obsession with the Instant Pot. Not every dish I make with it only uses one pot, but this one does! That alone is worth giving this recipe a try. Plus, it’s pretty cheap and healthy all at the same time!
There’s nothing like a bowl of hot chicken chili on a cold night. And you’d never think this recipe is as easy to execute as it is. But there are only two steps in this process, with an amazing result.
Step 1 – Prepare Your Chicken
I prefer oven-baked chicken for this chili. But you could absolutely use any leftover or store-bought rotisserie chicken. The simplest way to make the chicken is to season it well and bake at 425 for 30 minutes. Easy peasy.
Step 2 – Throw Everything Else in the Pot
That’s right. Just put all the remaining ingredients in your Instant Pot and you’re done! And the same goes for stovetop. You’ll just need to adjust the cook time.
