    Excited to make this !! Looks great. I do have a couple of questions 🙂

    Do you think I should reduce the pressure cook time if I used canned beans instead of dried? And 15 min at low or high pressure??

      You’ll definitely need to reduce the cook time if using canned beans, since they are already fully cooked. My only concern is that, if you reduce it too much, the vegetables may be a little crunchy – particularly the celery. So what I would try is this… Sauté the celery first for a few minutes before adding the rest of the veggies. Then later – set the time for 5 minutes on high pressure. Not sure it’ll work, but that’s what I’d try. Let me know how it goes!

    Amazing! I had to use white balsamic vinaigrette and stewed Italian tomatoes but this was a hit among the entire family and extended family. My 8 year old said “Momma I need to try this now, it just smells SO, SO GOOD!” and she was right. This page is saved in my favorites as a go to simple soup that is a crowd pleaser. Tomorrow we try your summer squash lemon risotto. Thank you for sharing your recipes!!!

      Awesome, thanks Tonia! Yeah, my 3-year-old can be brutally honest with the comments, so I appreciate winning the kids’ approval.

    I made this with canned beans and followed your suggestions in the comments. The flavors are excellent but the beans are a little overcooked (as you implied) so I probably won’t do that again. But the flavors with the vinegar and ay leaf are wonderful! Thank you for sharing!

    How long after the soup is cooked can I leave it in the instapot on the low setting?
    I’m concerned it will get mushy.
    I also really don’t want to have to watch it and turn it to quick release…Can I leave it on natural release and let it switch over to the “low”/“keep warm” setting?

      I’m not sure how long you can leave it, but I’d guess at lease a few hours. And you can absolutely do a natural release for this soup. Please let us know how it comes out!
