Wedding Soup

I'm calling this Wedding Soup because it will slim me down more before my son's wedding ;-) You can add or delete any veggies that you like! You can even add potato chunks. It's a flexible soup!

2 leeks (white part only) or 1 yellow onion, sliced thinly
1/2 head of cabbage, sliced thinly
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
3 organic carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
8 oz. baby bella or button mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 medium zucchini, chopped
One 28-oz. can crushed organic tomatoes with basil
1 can of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 T. Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Tomato Basil Garlic blend seasoning
1 T Italian seasoning (or 1/2 T basil and 1/2 T oregano)
1/4 t. black pepper
1 bag of frozen organic spinach or fresh spinach and/or kale
salt to taste

NOTE: Add any other non-starchy veggies you like!

Put all ingredients into the Instant Pot EXCEPT the spinach and/or kale and salt. Fill the pot with water to the max line. Secure the lid and set for 10 minutes on high pressure with NATURAL RELEASE. Add greens and salt AFTER cooking and the pressure has come down.


  1. I made this yesterday and totally enjoyed it. Will be making it a lot when it gets cold out.

  2. I don't have a pressure problem tho, your recipe adds more zip than i'll go with yours:)

  3. Great tips. Thanks for your article
