Here is what you need to make a quick soup right from the items in your fridge or pantry!

  • A protein (chicken, turkey, beef, or lentils work great!)

  • A grain or starchy vegetable (rice, quinoa, barley, whole wheat pasta or potatoes)
  • Liquid (Broth or canned tomatoes)

Tomato, Basil Chicken & Quinoa Instant Pot Soup Recipe

Start with a combination of what you have on hand!  I had rotisserie chicken, canned tomatoes, onions, spices, basil paste and chicken broth.  If I had extra spinach on hand, I would have thrown that in as well!

Cook the soup on using the “soup” function for seven minutes.  If your meat is not cooked (mine was) you will need to adjust.  Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then use the release valve for the remainder.
