Instant Pot Minestrone Soup

This healthy Instant Pot Minestrone Soup recipe is a quick and easy pressure cooker variation on our reader favorite Minestrone recipe. This hearty low-calorie soup has authentic slow-simmered Italian flavors but is ready in 35 minutes!


Set instant pot to sauté mode for 9 minutes. Add oil and let heat. Add onion, garlic, carrot, celery, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and sauté, stirring often until the vegetables are starting to brown

Add broth and pasta. Set the lid on the instant pot, set the pressure valve to sealing and set to pressure cook for 2 minutes

When the timer goes off, carefully switch the valve to release, and allow the steam to escape the pot.

Remove the lid. Set the cook function to sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, beans and spinach. Bring to a simmer, stirring often. When the mixture simmers and the spinach is wilted, shut off the instant pot.

Ladle the minestrone into bowls. Top with basil and drizzle with additional extra virgin olive oil before serving.
