Is there really anything better than a delicious, flavorful, creamy soup? Ever since I purchased our Instant Pot a few years back, it has been cooking up a storm in our kitchen, and soup is one of the main features! SO easy for this work-from-home mom of four! It’s so easy even my husband can do it

This recipe can be made in a stockpot if you don’t have an Instant Pot. I like to use my IP because it cooks those veggies in two minutes. No waiting around for meals in this house. *wink*
