This is my least favorite time of the year weather-wise. Even though I live in the South, it still gets cold here (well, cold for me!). High temperatures here in Nashville this week are only in the 20s, and while some of you northerners will scoff at that, I am officially frozen.
Really, though, how do people in colder climates even survive? I spend my days cocooned in my warm home, wearing multiple layers of coziness and wool socks, yet never feel like I really get warm enough.
I think cold weather is kind of fun around Christmas time, you know, for all things festive and what-not, but after that, what’s the point? Winter can be over after Christmas, as far as I’m concerned.
But I’m not in charge of the weather, so I just make lots of soup this time of year. 🙂
Making Italian Vegetable Beef Soup in the Instant Pot
This soup in particular is a favorite of mine, and really, it’s perfect for any time of year. I’ve been making a slow cooker version of it ever since I found the original recipe from New Leaf Wellness years ago. I decided to adapt it for my Instant Pot in order to make it even faster to prepare, and the result is just as delicious but only requires a fraction of the time.
One of my favorite things about making soup in the Instant Pot is that it tastes like it’s simmered for hours even though it hasn’t!
This Italian vegetable beef soup is pretty versatile–I use green beans and carrots and cannellini beans, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
I use frozen green beans and slice my carrots while the ground beef is browning. You can use frozen sliced carrots to save a few minutes if you want.
Not only that, but the recipe uses jarred spaghetti sauce, which makes it super quick to throw together!
The resulting hearty tomato-based soup is chock full of beef, veggies, and beans, and it’s a cinch to make. Bonus: It’s a pretty healthy and frugal meal option!
Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top and serve it alongside a salad and some crusty bread. It’s also a great accompaniment for a grilled cheese sandwich!
However you serve it, this hearty Italian vegetable beef soup is sure to warm your day!
