Base Soup

Course Main Course, Side Dish
Cuisine British, Modern


  • Instant Pot Multi Pressure Cooker


  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 2 stick celery chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 600 ml stock or water and stock cube
  • ADD MAIN INGREDIENTS e.g. vegetables pulses, meat


  • Set pot to SAUTE with oil in inner pot.
  • Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Add MAIN INGREDIENTS and stock.
  • Timings vary according to size and density of ingredients.
  • However, if you use the SOUP setting (30 mins high pressure) the worst that can happen is slightly overcooked vegetables.
  • I would suggest veggie soups need only minutes. Meat-based will need longer.
