You may have already gathered from my last two recipes that I am a big fan of soup. Yes, I admit it, I love soup. When you can pressure cook your own Chicken broth or stock at home in no time and without filling the house with its smell, it becomes a weekly staple and, once you have that stock or broth (whatever you prefer to call it) in the fridge, it’s so versatile!…
Instant Pot Soup
This is one of the myriad of recipes you can cook after pressure cooking a whole chicken in the Instant Pot. Find the method for pressure cooking whole chicken first here.
Then, after making Chicken Stock as per that delicious recipe. You can keep the stock and some of the meat (or just the stock and none of the meat) to make this Instant Pot Soup with Greens, Beans, Potatoes and Chorizo.
If you fancy the idea of this recipe but are not a meat eater and wish it didn’t have the chorizo or the chicken stock, how about making it vegetarian or vegan by preparing my Vegetable Stock Paste and cooking this soup with 1 litre of water, 3 tablespoons of my vegetable stock paste, 1 tsp of paprika and omitting the chorizo, keep the potatoes, the greens and the beans….
Cooking gammon in the Instant Pot is easy, painless and, above all, tasty. Instant Pot ham though is not great for my waist line as I seem to snack on it all day (particularly good dipped in Quirky Cooking’s BBQ Sauce if you haven’t glazed it!). In my defence, it’s really, really nice and well, it’s there in the fridge, all I have to do is pinch a bit.
There are two ways of cooking Instant Pot ham, all details here….
I learnt this Leek and Potato Soup from my husband a few years ago, who in turn learnt it from his mother. The “twist” is the addition of soy sauce (or tamari if you need to keep it gluten free), it has a lovely taste. It’s really easy, although I swear it tastes better when husband makes it), it’s that “I didn’t have to cook it myself” feeling, isn’t it?
I am loving the Instant Pot, do not forget I have managed to get you the best offer in the UK for the Instant Pot Duo 7 in 1, now extended until the end of November 2015. You’ll find all the details here but, in short, you get an Instant Pot Duo 7 in 1, free delivery (UK only), free silicon mini mitts and a free spare sealing ring for £104 (saving a total of £48.99). What does the 7 in 1 part refer to? As well as a pressure cooker, it’s a slow cooker, a yoghurt maker, a porridge maker, a rice cooker, a steamer and it has a “keep warm” function that I’m in love with.
This is a chunky soup in my household, my recipe tester blended hers and she reported that it worked well! As always, the key is the taste.
Don’t forget the Pressure Cooking UK with Feisty Tapas, no matter what type of pressure cooker you have, even if you are just thinking of buying one, you are most welcome there.
