Instant Pot Vegan Potato Soup

I’m not exactly sure how this happened. But somehow and some way, this Instant Pot vegan potato soup has a “meaty” flavor. Now, that is not the point – to have food taste like meat. But when eating a strict plant-based diet, I’ll take any meaty flavor I can get! And, additionally, is actually more of a potato-vegetable chowder than a soup.

Instant Pot Vegan Potato Soup
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion - diced
  • 2 stalks celery - diced
  • 2 medium carrots - peeled, diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic - minced
  • 2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 Tbsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 3 lbs. potatoes (red or gold) - skin-on, roughly chopped
  1. Turn on sauté setting on Instant Pot - Once hot, add oil, onions, carrots, and celery, cook for about 5 minutes (until onions are translucent and carrots begin to soften).
  2. Add vinegar, garlic, and bay leaf ­ cook for 2 minutes, until vinegar has evaporated.
  3. Add vegetable stock, salt, pepper, and potatoes, then mix well. Then switch Instant Pot to manual setting for 7 minutes.
  4. Once time is complete quick-­release pressure then remove lid.
  5. Remove bay leaf and mash well with a potato masher. (I don't recommend using any kind of blender because the soup will become super starchy.)
  6. Ladle into a bowl and top with caramelized onions and/or fresh green onions.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

    I made this soup for my family last night, and it was delicious! We went vegan 5 weeks ago, and I am building my repertoire of recipes that are well received by the whole family. My teenage son asked if we could have this again, so you know it was a hit! To bump up the protein, I added 2 cups of cooked great northern beans. They just disappear into the soup. My son runs cross country and burns a ton of calories, so I was just trying to sneak in a little extra fuel for him. We’ll be having this again soon!

    A full tablespoon of salt seemed a lot to me so I did less. The soup was delicious! Great tasting and easy recipe. Thanks.

      When you account for 3 pounds of potatoes and all the other veggies, 1 Tbsp really isn’t that much. So glad you liked it though! And thanks for your feedback.

    Could you do the Sautee part earlier in the day and then pour the rest in and set the timer for dinner time?

      I don’t see why you couldn’t do that. I might be just a little concerned about it sitting at room temperature for an extended period of time though. Bad bacteria love to grow in lukewarm food.
