Healthy Gut-Friendly Vegetable Soup in the Instant Pot

Make Healthy Gut-Friendly Vegetable Soup in the Instant Pot, that is delicious and hearty and perfect for restoring your gut health. In addition to soups being easy to digest, like in the case of this Vegetable Soup, they are made from nutrient-dense ingredients like herbs, spices and vegetables.

To make this Vegetable Soup I used quite a few veggies, including carrots, butternut, leek, baby marrow, spinach and canned tomatoes.

The recipe is very forgiving so you could definitely substitute any of the ingredients with other veggies you have in the pantry.

What’s an Instant Pot?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must have heard of the Instant Pot. My Instagram and Pinterest timeline has almost always got somebody raving over this pot and how it changed their lives in the kitchen.

Instant Pot is the most popular multi-cooker brand in the world and has tons of functions, including pressure-cooking, slow cooking, yoghurt making, bread making, rice cooking, steaming, warming, and sautéing.

It really is an all in one appliance that helps accelerate the cooking process.

They are a cult favourite with moms, with many posting their go-to “dump and go” recipes. (Meaning: add everything to the pot, set the timer and go do a million other things without worrying about your food burning).
