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 made up a mixture of Herbes de Provence following the recipe at the end, and at the very end, I pureed part of the soup using a hand-blender, trying to keep most of the carrot pieces intact. Also, I followed the regular directions, not the pressure cooker ones, because it was such a quick-cooking dish. Definitely a keeper.
Pressure cooking and stovetop instructions are included.

I adapted this recipe to remove the oil and cut down on the coconut milk, and I replaced the green beans the recipe called for with chickpeas. My family really loved this quick and easy, pressure-cooker dish.

- The Slow Miracle of My Yoga Practice: Feeling The Whole in a PartI was introduced to the well-known Hindu fable The Blind Men and the Elephant at a very early age. At 3, my mother read me the 19th century version byJohn Godfrey Saxe from the pages of the Childcraft volume, Storytelling and Other Poems. This volume was part of a set my parents must have purchased when […]
