The first big cold front of the year is sweeping through right now, and that can only mean one thing – it’s officially soup season! And, there’s no quicker way to get soup on the table than your Instant Pot. Below you’ll find our best Instant Pot soup recipes to make all fall and winter long.

Why make soup in the Instant Pot?

The biggest draw for making soup in the Instant Pot is, of course, time! Making soup in the Instant Pot vs. the stovetop or slow cooker can save you hours of time, especially when working with tougher cuts of meat – like stew beef. Pressure cooking also helps deepen flavors more quickly, meaning you don’t have to spend hours simmering soup on the stove. Another added bonus that we love about the Instant Pot is that you can cook meat from frozen – so if you decide to make chicken soup on the fly and find that your chicken is still frozen – it’s no big deal! Just toss the chicken in and the pot will automatically adjust its cooking to accommodate it.
