- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 1 and 1/2 cups water

For the Instant Pot
- Roughly chop the vegetables into big chunks.
- Add everything to your Instant-Pot. Make sure the liquid is covering the veggies. If you added extra vegetables you may need to increase the broth and seasonings.
- Press the manual/pressure cook feature and set the IP to 10 minutes at high pressure.
- Allow the soup to naturally release pressure for 5-10 minutes, then turn the steam knob and quick release the remaining pressure.
- Carefully open the lid and give the soup a stir.
- Serve warm with your favorite breadsticks, side salad, crusty artisan bread or saltine crackers.
For the Stovetop
- Roughly chop the vegetables into big chunks.
- Add everything to a large soup pot and bring to a simmer. Then cover and simmer for 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- The soup is done when the vegetables are soft and the potatoes are tender.
- Serve warm with your favorite crackers, breadsticks, side salad, or crusty artisan bread.
*Generously measure the seasonings for extra flavor.
*Making this soup ahead of time allows the flavors to really come together enhancing the taste.
*Add a few Tablespoons of tomato paste to increase the tomato flavor.
*If you decide to add pasta to the soup, I suggest using no more than 1/4 cup (1/2 cup for larger pasta), increasing the broth by at least 1 cup and adding in extra seasonings.
*If you decide to add rice to the soup, I suggest using about 1/4 cup, increasing the broth another 1/2 cup and adding in extra seasonings.
