We’re in the middle of the “Bomb Cyclone” which is a dramatic way of saying winter storm. Naturally, I am making Instant Pot vegetable soup with sweet potatoes and lentils, because we all need healthy comfort food!
You Must Make This Instant Pot Vegetable Soup ASAP!
Many soup recipes call for flour and tons of meat, but I am in the mood for more hearty, plant-based recipes lately. This one is thick and filling, because lentils are a fabulous source of plant protein. We’re talking 9 grams of protein per cup! And in case you aren’t obsessed with the ins and outs of nutrition (it’s okay, I wasn’t into that kind of thing until last year), protein is what keeps you full. (Yes, that’s why you are still starving after eating an entire bag of chips.)
Translation: if you want to lose some inches and simply feel more satisfied after meals, eat foods that are high in protein and low in calories. And if you’re gonna pound the carbs, then do it with whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. That really is the magic secret. You’re welcome.
The Secret Ingredient for Flavorful and Hearty Vegan Soup!
Drum roll, please…
Sweet potatoes and quality tomato sauce! Yes, friends. I recommend the Jar Goods Classic Vodka Tomato or their Classic Red (vegan) sauce for this Instant Pot vegetable soup. Don’t worry, the alcohol cooks out and what you’re left with is insanely deep and delicious flavor.
You already know how I feel about Jar Goods tomato sauce as evidenced in this Instant Pot turkey chili recipe and this cheesy baked pizza dip recipe. The ingredients are 100% clean and natural, made with ingredients straight from the garden.
Are you ready to dive into this recipe? It only takes 12 minutes to cook in the Instant Pot and you only have one pot to clean! That’s called winning at life.
