Okay, here comes the beauty of the pressure cooker. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, the recipe will remain the same, but you will need to allow the soup to simmer for at least an hour until the vegetables are soft.

This wonderfully spiced soup can be made in either a pressure cooker or regular soup pot.
Minty, lemony, and delicious pressure cooker recipe.
A couple of nights ago at Fresh Choice they were serving a Tuscan White Bean soup I really liked – so I decided I’d try to replicate it at home in the pressure cooker. Here’s what I came up with this afternoon.
3 corn tortillas, torn into pieces
1 1/2 cups stock or broth…
Brenda’s note: This is a keeper! We were impressed with how nice the beans cooked, soft and perfect; easily mashed right in the pressure cooker when they’d finished cooking.
I made this simple soup last night and it was heavenly. Here’s what I did: I didn’t have leeks, so I substituted 2 chopped onions.

I lost no time checking that theory out on one of my favorite summer veggies, eggplant. I’m happy to say that I […]
- Loving Portland Like WaterWhen I was first beginning my search for a new home in Portland late last Spring, Mike and Kelly took me out to a secret spot beyond the Portland area they like to hike and swim. It was a hard hike for me on a hot day, complete with walking across a log bridge with […]
