Instant Pot Vegetable and Chicken Soup:

This nourishing vegetable and chicken soup is one of my favorites to make when I am feeling under the weather or just when I want a cozy bowl of soup for the soul. The nice thing about this soup is that it can be prepared in an instant pot or stove top.

Saute vegetables first:

I first set my instant pot to the sauté function, add avocado oil to pot, and warm oil. Once oil is warm (you can test by adding a piece of the onion to pot and if it starts to sizzle its good to go) I add celery, carrots, onions, salt + pepper, and sauté for 5-7 minutes. Then I add in seasonings along with garlic and cook a couple minutes, stirring throughout so the garlic doesn’t burn.

Preparing the soup:

Once veggies have sautéed I turn off my instant pot, add in my bone broth, cilantro, lime juice, diced chicken, and close my instant pot, seal valve, and set to soup function for 30 minutes. Then once my soup is done, I let the pressure release naturally (about 10-12 minutes). When done, I open my pot, add in the zucchini, broccoli, and let the veggies softened for about 5-7 minutes.
