Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Kale

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Kale

This rich, comforting pressure cooker pumpkin soup is full of hearty whole-food ingredients with all the flavors of Fall. It truly is a meal in one bowl, without having a one-note flavor profile. We are also big fans of using mushrooms to make things “meatier”.

 

Can I Substitute With Low-Fat Ingredients?

You have a few options to help lower the fat and calorie count. You could substitute ground turkey seasoned with fennel seeds and sage for the sausage. And you can use 2% milk, or even a dairy-free milk for the whole milk. However, the flavor will not be as rich and comforting. Personally, I believe this is a recipe where splurging on higher-calorie ingredients is totally worth it!

Why Sherry Wine Vinegar?

While we’re talking substitutions, you may notice that the recipe card says you can sub red wine vinegar for sherry wine vinegar. So why do I use sherry wine vinegar in this pressure cooker pumpkin soup in the first place? I first heard, then believed for myself, that sherry wine and mushrooms are great friends in a pan. So I went out and bought a bottle of sherry, used it twice, then threw out the rest because it expired.

So the next time I wanted to use it, I opted for sherry wine vinegar instead. And while it’s definitely not the same thing, it does accomplish the same thing – adding a specific flavor using acidity. The acid is the point, while the flavor can be changed. That’s why any vinegar will work, but I would opt for something more neutral if subbing it out.

 

The Process

Using sauté setting – add oil to cooker.

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice with Fresh Herbs

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice with Fresh Herbs

When we think of perfectly cooked rice, we usually think of fluffy, tender, individual grains of rice. In the typical rice recipe, sticky, gummy rice is to be avoided at all costs.  Unless of course, you’re intentionally trying to make sticky rice, a staple food in northern Thailand. Now,  while I am definitely not from Thailand, I do appreciate cuisine from all around the world. And this pressure cooker coconut rice is reflective of that.

Serve with Something Saucy!

While the texture of our pressure cooker coconut rice shares some characteristics with sticky rice, it is not at all a Thai sticky rice recipe. Thai sticky rice is made with sweet rice and water, while our recipe combines jasmine rice with coconut milk and fresh herbs. However, like Thai sticky rice, this coconut rice yields a slightly sticky rice that pairs well with saucy dishes like our Instant Pot Country Ribs with Sweet Spicy Red Curry Sauce, or our Instant Pot Curry with Chickpeas, Tomatoes & Spinach.

Mint in a savory dish?

While you may think of spearmint gum, mint chocolate chip ice-cream, and other sweet treats when we hear the word “mint”, it’s actually a versatile herb that works well in both sweet and savory dishes. It pairs perfectly with the other flavors of this dish. If cooking savory dishes with mint is new to you, trust us, it works. Maybe give this Spring Pea and Mint Risotto a try!

 

The Process

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice | The Foodie Eats

Rinse rice under cold water until water begins to run clear. Then transfer wet rice to pot.

 

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice | The Foodie Eats

In a mixing bowl, combine coconut milk and vegetable broth.

 

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice | The Foodie Eats

Pour liquid over rice, along with salt, and give a quick mix. Lock lid at cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

 

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice | The Foodie Eats

Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for about 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure.

Meanwhile, take a few leaves of mint and basil…

… and chop them as finely as you can.

Then, use a fork to fluff rice. (This rice recipe will be both sticky and clumpy, not individual grains – perfect for serving with something with lots of liquid to soak it up.)

Instant Pot Curry with Chickpeas, Tomatoes & Spinach

Instant Pot Curry with Chickpeas, Tomatoes and Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Curry with Chickpeas, Tomatoes & Spinach

First, let me begin by saying that I am fully aware that this is not an authentic preparation of curry. I mean, I live in Florida, with roots from Alabama and the Carolinas. But, this recipe is a quick, flavorful, Americanized Instant Pot curry. And it’s been a big hit every time I’ve served it! Try it with this Coconut-Herb Rice.

I’ve eaten a lot of “quick and easy” curries before. And, quite frankly, they often lack the most important ingredient in ANY food: Flavor! Well, let me assure you that this version delivers. I’ve taken this dish to multiple potlucks. And surprisingly, it has been the big hit! (Possibly because no one knew it was a plant-based recipe…? Lol.)

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Turkey Soup

With Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach

I’m not sure what’s gotten into me lately, but I am currently mildly obsessed with ground turkey. I find myself actively looking for new ways to use it. That’s pretty much how this recipe was born. I used to make this soup (that I love and should post a recipe for) with sausage, kale and pumpkin. Well, one day last week, I decided to change it a few ways: cook it in my Instant Pot and make it a little healthier. This Instant Pot turkey soup with mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and spinach is the result!

 

Wow, sweet potatoes are versatile!

Sweet potatoes are kinda magical. They’re always in season and can be used in more ways than just about any other vegetable. I’ve always heard that they are great used as a thickener of sauces, but I’ve never tried it myself. That’s kinda how we use them in this Instant Pot turkey soup. We cook them until they’re very soft, then break them up. It took an otherwise broth-y soup and gave it substantial body!

The Process

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Using sauté setting – add 1 tablespoon olive oil and mushrooms. DO NOT add any salt at this point (something you’ll rarely hear me say, since you should season as you go). We want to brown the mushrooms and if we add salt now they will sweat. (This picture is to show you how they start and finish, however they should be cut differently.)

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add thyme leaves and cook them for a few minutes before touching them, allowing them begin to caramelize slightly. Once they have browned slightly on all sides, hit them with a dash of salt and remove right away. Set aside.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pot, along with onions and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and translucent.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add fennel seeds and sage. Mix well and allow to toast for a a minute or two, stirring frequently. You want them to become fragrant and begin to release their oils (they’ve been sitting in a jar for who knows how long).

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add turkey to pot, season with salt and pepper, and break up as much as possible. Then leave it be for a few minutes to begin the browning process. Stir occasionally.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Once turkey is fully broken up and nearly fully cooked, add garlic, mix well, and cook for another minute or two.

Return mushrooms to pot, along with chicken broth and sweet potatoes. Lock lid and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. Then, using a potato masher, gently mash sweet potatoes to break them up.

Instant Pot Country Ribs with Sweet & Spicy Red Curry Sauce

Instant Pot Country Ribs with Sweet & Spicy Red Curry Sauce | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Country Ribs

With Sweet & Spicy Red Curry Sauce

Country ribs and red curry sauce may seem like an unusual combination. But, once you try this Instant Pot country ribs recipe, you’ll swear they were made to go together. The flavor of this dish is perfectly balanced – slightly sweet, subtly spicy, and savory!  I like to serve them over herbed rice drizzled with the sauce.

What are country ribs?

Country ribs aren’t actually ribs at all. They’re boneless pieces of pork that come from the blade end of the loin close to the shoulder. They’re similar in flavor and texture to rib cuts, but are boneless and often meatier. It’s a versatile cut of meat that does well whether slow braising or grilling. In this dish, they result in fall-apart tender pork with incredible flavor.

Instant Pot Shrimp Boil – With BBQ Shrimp Rub

Instant Pot Shrimp Boil

With BBQ Shrimp Rub

I don’t know about you, but I spend most of the summer doing my best to cook as much summertime produce as possible. Sure, with our worldwide economy, you can get corn and watermelon year-round. But only during the summer is corn super fresh and (at times) $0.25 an ear! Well, IMHO, there is probably no better way to use corn than in this Instant Pot shrimp boil!

 

It’s like Old Bay had a baby with BBQ!

While the real beauty of this recipe might be in its simplicity (you literally mix up some spices and dump everything in the pot), I think you’ll agree that the flavor takes it to a new level. Sure, everybody loves old bay, but it really is kind of one flavor and not very interesting. Well, in this recipe we use a blend of spices that work so well together that you’ll be tempted to drink the broth. But do not do that! Just pour some extra on top. Lol…

 

The Process

Instant Pot Baked Beans – Quick, Sweet, and Tangy

Instant Pot Baked Beans - Quick, Sweet, and Tangy | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Baked Beans

Quick, Sweet, and Tangy

There’s not always time to cook from scratch, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste. This quick version of Instant Pot baked beans definitely delivers! The flavors are bold, while the method is quick and easy. It’s perfect for a summer barbecue or potluck!

 

Why are they so Tangy?

I don’t know about you, but I love acidity in my food. Whether it be some sort of vinegar or citrus juice, acidity can really bring an otherwise boring dish to life! That being said, these beans have more vinegar in them than usual. This is totally intentional. But, if you’re not into that, you can easily reduce the amount of vinegar from 1/4 cup to 2 tablespoons.

 

Instant Pot Baked Beans - Quick, Sweet, and Tangy | The Foodie Eats

 

From scratch. But with a small cheat.

We all know the benefits of cooking from scratch – usually a higher quality product and you know exactly what’s inside. Well, this Instant Pot baked beans recipe is very close to scratch, but with one small cheat – we are using canned navy beans instead of dried beans. We could have taken it a step further and used pork’n beans, but then the whole idea of “from scratch” would be out the window. For this reason, these beans will have a lighter color than if you’re using dried beans or canned pork’n beans.

I really recommend making these the day before you want to serve them. The longer the beans sit in the juice, the darker they will become. Not that they will taste any different, but they will just look more like what your guests are accustomed to seeing. If you’re interested in the full “from scratch” version, click HERE!

Ingredients

  • 8 bacon strips thick-sliced
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion diced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup 100% maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 64 oz. canned navy beans

Instructions

  1. Using sauté setting – Add bacon to pot and cook until almost crispy. Then add onions and cook until soft and translucent. Remove bacon, onions, and bacon fat from pot. Keep the bacon and onions for this recipe. Reserve bacon fat for another use or discard.

  2. Return bacon and onions to pot, along with vinegar. Continue cooking for about a minute, making sure to scrape up all the fond (brown bits) from the bottom of pot.

Recipe Notes

These beans will have a lighter color than either using dried beans or canned pork'n beans. For this reason, I really recommend making these the day before you want to serve them. The longer the beans sit in the juice, the darker they will become. Not that they will taste any different, but they will just look more like what your guests are accustomed to seeing.

These beans have more vinegar in them than the typical recipe. This was intentional, as we wanted a sweet yet tangy recipe. This can easily be adapted to personal preference. For less tangy beans, reduce the amount of vinegar from 1/4 cup to 2 tablespoons.

Pressure Cooker Shepherd’s Pie with Turkey and Sweet Potatoes

Pressure Cooker Shepherd's Pie with Turkey and Sweet Potatoes | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Shepherd’s Pie

With Turkey and Sweet Potatoes

Shepherd’s Pie is probably the quintessential comfort food – meat, potatoes, cheese. Does it really get any better than that? Well, maybe… This pressure cooker shepherd’s pie recipe is definitely comforting, but with about half of the guilt! We’ve switched out the beef (or lamb) for turkey and traded out the white potatoes and added one of our favorites… sweet potatoes. And it’s soooo good!

We’ve also kicked up the spice level to something unexpected, with cumin and chipotle. The blend of sweet from the potatoes, spice from the turkey, and salt from the cheese is completely intoxicating.

A Little Lesson About Mushrooms

First things first… Mushrooms HATE water. You really should never rinse mushrooms under water. Rather, what I do is, wipe them clean with damp paper towels. Next, there are pretty much two ways to sauté mushrooms – each way yielding a different result.

Here’s the quick explanation… If you add salt while cooking them, it will draw the water out of them (this is called “sweating”) and they will become soft and will not brown. On the other hand, if you do not add salt, they will keep a firmer texture (useful when you want them to be “meaty”) and will brown if your pan is hot enough. That’s what we wanted in this pressure cooker shepherd’s pie, hence the reason for this explanation.

 

The Process

Pressure Cooker Shepherd's Pie with Turkey and Sweet Potatoes | The Foodie Eats

Place sweet potatoes in pot on top of trivet. Then add 1 1/2 cups of water and lock lid. Cook for 20 minutes at high pressure.

 

Pressure Cooker Shepherd's Pie with Turkey and Sweet Potatoes | The Foodie Eats

Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally (about 15 minutes), then quick-release remaining pressure.

 

Pressure Cooker Shepherd's Pie with Turkey and Sweet Potatoes | The Foodie Eats

Carefully remove skin and any dark spots from sweet potatoes and transfer them to a large bowl, along with butter, brown sugar, and salt. Mix well, then mash them until their like mashed potatoes.

 

Pressure Cooker Shepherd's Pie with Turkey and Sweet Potatoes | The Foodie Eats

Rinse out pot and dry completely. Using sauté setting – add 1 tablespoon olive oil and mushrooms. DO NOT add any salt at this point (something you’ll rarely hear me say, since you should season as you go). We want to brown the mushrooms and if we add salt now they will sweat.

 

Pressure Cooker Shepherd's Pie with Turkey and Sweet Potatoes | The Foodie Eats

Cook them for a few minutes on each side, until the begin to caramelize slightly. Once they have browned, hit them with a dash of salt and remove right away. Set aside.

Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pot, along with onions and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and translucent. Remove and set aside.

Add turkey to pot and break up as much as possible. Then leave it be for a few minutes to begin the browning process. Stir occasionally.

Once turkey is fully broken up and nearly fully cooked, add 1 teaspoon salt, turmeric, cumin, chipotle powder, and smoked paprika. Mix well.

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup

with Collard Greens

This is not your average pressure cooker chicken vegetable soup. We’ve upped the ante, gone southern, and added the beloved collard greens! And in doing so, we’ve come across something truly special. The flavor is rich and mild, but definitely not bland! We found that adding a spoonful of pesto to the top of each bowl was pretty mind-blowing too!

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

 

Could you sub different chicken?

On the day we began developing this pressure cooker chicken vegetable soup recipe, the intention was to use a whole chicken for the meat and broth. But, that day, chicken leg quarters were on sale (almost half the price of whole chicken). So I decided to go with it, and it was a good choice! Because of the higher fat content of dark meat, the broth ended up being more rich and flavorful than when using a whole chicken.

I’m pretty sure using any combination of chicken pieces (or even a whole chicken) would work for this recipe with one exception: boneless, skinless chicken breasts. In my opinion, they just don’t have enough flavor to season the broth properly. However, if your goal is to create this dish as guilt-free as possible, and using breasts is a must, I would also use store-bought chicken broth (or stock) instead of water. Then cut the chicken cook time to 8 minutes with a natural pressure release.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

 

The Process

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Add chicken, chopped onion, garlic, thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes, and bay leaves to pot.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Then add water and lock lid. Set manual timer for 30 minutes at high pressure.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Remove stems from collard green leaves and separate leaves into 2 pieces. Discard stems.

Cut leaves into 1-inch pieces so that they are easily spoonable.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

This is easiest by stacking several leaves at a time.

Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for about 30 minutes. If there is any pressure left at that point, go ahead and quick-release remaining pressure.

Pour broth through a fine mesh strainer and set aside. Discard cooked aromatics.

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice “Casserole”

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice "Casserole" - The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice “Casserole”

Is there anyone who didn’t grow up eating some kind of chicken and rice dish? Whether it’s chicken biryani, arroz con pollo, Hainan chicken rice, a savory bowl of chicken and rice, or a cheesy chicken and rice casserole… Across many cultures, the classic combination of chicken and rice always says comfort food. And this pressure cooker chicken broccoli rice casserole is no different! Comfort food at its finest.

Do I have to use a whole chicken?

Well, the short answer is: no. You do not have to use a whole chicken. However, using a whole chicken is the best way to make an amazing broth – which is what makes this recipe amazing. Since you cook both the rice and broccoli in the broth, I highly recommend taking the extra step of making your own broth. Trust me, it’s worth it! Plus, you need to cook the chicken anyways, so…

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice "Casserole" - The Foodie Eats

 

The Process

Place whole chicken in Instant Pot breast side up. Then add water, salt, and black pepper. Lock lid, close vent, and set manual timer for 30 minutes at high pressure.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice "Casserole" - The Foodie Eats

Place broccoli florets in a large bowl and cover with cold water and allow to defrost completely. Obviously, this step is not necessary if using fresh broccoli.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice "Casserole" - The Foodie Eats

Pour broccoli into a colander and allow to drain completely.

 

Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally (will take about 30 minutes).

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice "Casserole" - The Foodie Eats

Then remove chicken from pot to a separate bowl. Be careful because it might be falling apart, which is good!

 

Pass broth through a fine mesh strainer and return to pressure cooker.

 

Add broccoli to pot and set manual timer for 0 (zero) minutes. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure.

 

Pour broccoli into a fine mesh strainer, making sure to reserve all the broth.

 

For white rice… Return broth to pot, along with rice, and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Broccoli Rice "Casserole" - The Foodie Eats

For brown rice… Return broth to pot, along with rice, and cook for 20 minutes at high pressure.
