I love the simplicity of this Instant Pot recipe, and I make it often. I even made it in the dead heat of summer last July because it’s just that delicious! My favorite part about this recipe is the Instant Pot creates an easy one pot meal, and all I have to do is provide the tasty ingredients!
This easy Instant Pot recipe is also customizable. You can add or substitute in different vegetables or beans that fit your taste palate! For this simple Minestrone soup recipe, I use a pack of frozen mixed vegetables—corn, green beans, carrots, and peas. You can also add in celery or zucchini. You could also substitute cannellini beans for the kidney beans.
The inspiration for this recipe came from the Olive Garden Minestrone Soup. I make sure to always order a bowl whenever I go there for dinner. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, I haven’t been to Olive Garden (I sure miss their breadsticks). This recipe is definitely an easy Olive Garden CopyCat Minestrone Soup that has become a Covid-19 favorite recipe.
I love the fact that this tasty Minestrone soup is also vegetarian and vegan friendly! You can add in chicken or beef, but I think it’s delicious as is. Due to the nature of Minestrone soup, the flavor complements a variety of vegetables and beans. This is a hearty and healthy soup to start with, so add ingredients as you see fit. You can make this soup even healthier by substituting traditional white flour pasta with quinoa, whole wheat flour pasta, garbanzo pasta, or lentil pasta! Gluten-free is also an option with fluten-free pasta.
