What a pressure cooker does for soup recipes
1) The saute function allows you to skip the stove and saute soup ingredients right in the Instant Pot. This is ideal for cooking aromatics like onion, ginger, and garlic – and browning proteins like beef, sausage, pork, or chicken before pressure cooking the soup.
2) Some Instant Pot soup recipes are quicker than other methods, but the real convenience is every pressure cooker soup recipe is hands-free in pressure cooking mode. So, you have time to make that kale salad or homemade croutons.
3) Instant pot soups are known for bringing BIG flavor to soups because the steam-cooked, enclosed environment prevents loss of moisture which promotes flavor retention.
