  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 3-4 medium carrots
  • 1 (15 oz) can canned diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 ½ cup green beans (1 handful)
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 2-3 celery sticks
  • 1 onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Peel and dice the carrots and potatoes. Clean and cut the peppers, green beans, and celery into bite sized pieces. Peel and dice the onion, and grate or finely chop the garlic.
  • Heat up a teaspoon of olive oil in an Instant Pot on SAUTE setting. Add diced onion, and sauté for a few minutes until it is soft and translucent.
    1 ½ cup green beans
  • Then, add grated garlic and seasoning, and sauté for another minute.
    1 yellow bell pepper, 2-3 celery sticks, 1 onion, 1 green bell pepper
  • Press cancel to turn off the SAUTE setting. Scrape the bottom and sides of the pot to loosen up any stuck pieces of onion.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot, and seal the lid on top. Select the PRESSURE COOK or MANUAL setting, and set a timer to 10 minutes.
    4 medium potatoes, 3 cups vegetable broth, 1 (15 oz) can canned diced tomatoes, 1 cup frozen peas, 3-4 medium carrots
  • When the timer is up, carefully use a wooden spoon or similar utensil to turn or press the venting valve. Remove the lid when the steam is released.
  • Stir the soup, and add extra seasoning to taste if you wish.



  • Store leftovers in a fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 6 months. You can reheat the soup in a microwave, on the stove or in the pressure cooker.
