Sometimes I just serve this Instant Pot vegetable soup as a meal, while other times, it’s simply the start of what’s to come. As you can see, it’s very colorful with green beans and green onions, red tomatoes and radishes, white cannellini beans, and a light broth to tie it all together.

Once the soup is done cooking, drizzle a bit of soy sauce and sesame oil into it before serving. Enjoy it piping hot or warm for the best medley of beautiful flavors!

No Instant Pot, no problem

The Instant Pot really makes this soup so quickly, though if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can make it on the stovetop, as well. It will just take a bit longer. The key is to sauté the ginger first, which unleashes its fragrance. On the stove, you can use the same pot. Simply simmer the soup until everything turns tender, 15 to 20 minutes. 

This recipe is perfect for adding more vegetables to your meal, or if you’re vegetarian or vegan, you won’t have to make any adjustments to make it fit your lifestyle. It’s a vegetable soup that everyone can enjoy.
