Instant Pot Cabbage Veggie Soup

This hearty low carb soup uses chayote instead of potatoes. Chayote is a thin skinned squash that is a low carb, high fiber vegetable that is high in nutrients. Stove top directions included.

We like our soups to be full of nutritious vegetables. I add frozen green beans or frozen peas before serving to help cool the soup to an edible temperature!

Instant Pot Cabbage Veggie Soup

Makes 10-12 servings
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking TIme: 40 minutes

1 leek rinsed, sliced thin (or a medium onion, diced)
3 large stalks of celery, rough chopped
4 large carrots, peeled and rough chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2 tsp dried sage
2 cups tomatoes, diced
5 cups cabbage, chopped
2 chayote, diced
2 cups mushrooms, rough chopped
8 cups broth
1 tsp. turmeric
½ tsp black pepper
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 bay leaf
2 cups frozen green beans (or frozen peas)
1 tsp. sea salt, to taste
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  1. Chop vegetables into bite size pieces that you like for your soup.
  2. Select sauté on the Instant Pot and warm some extra virgin olive oil and add the leek, celery, carrots, and garlic and sauté until the onion is softened, about 1 minute. Add the dried herbs and stir until fragrant about a minute.
  3. Add the tomatoes, cabbage, chayote, mushrooms, the broth, turmeric, black pepper, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Insert a bay leaf in the center, seal the lid and select manual, high pressure, 10 minutes.
  4. After it beeps, let it naturally release for 5 minutes. Unplug and remove lid, remove bay leaf, add sea salt and frozen green beans (or peas) and stir. Right before serving stir in the apple cider vinegar, then taste to see if it needs more salt.

Serve and top with an herb garnish.

Stove top directions: follow instructions above to sauté then adding the rest in step 3.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, cover pot and simmer for 20-25 minutes, then do the rest of step 4.


Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:18
