I think it’s safe to say I’ve commandeered my mom’s Instant Pot. Ever since I bought her one for Christmas last year, I’ve gone over to my parent’s apartment at least once a week to whip up a fun meal or soup.
It’s just so easy to use and I love that the food tastes like it was slow cooked for HOURS even though it only takes minutes to cook. It’s the perfect kitchen tool for people who want to meal prep but feel like they don’t have the time. From meatloaf and chili and to banana bread and oatmeal…Instant Pots really can cook everything. Desserts, main dishes, breakfasts, sides, and my favorite, soups, all turn out amazing when pressure cooked. Plus, it makes for an easy method and clean up as well!
Today, I am making your life even EASIER in the world of Instant Pot cooking by sharing the SIMPLEST soup recipe you could possibly ever make using it. It requires no fancy settings, no sautéing, no quick releasing vs. manual releasing….or any of that nonsense! To be honest, even though I use the Instant Pot often, I keep things pretty simplistic.
And that’s just what you’ll get with my recipe for the EASIEST Ever Split Pea Soup!
Does anyone love split pea soup as much as I do? It’s so hearty, thick, and FULL of plant-based protein! Sure, the color isn’t great and it typically turns out looking like baby food once it’s done cooking, but the deliciousness factor makes it worth it. 😋
