Pressure Cooker AIP Roasted Vegetable Soup
I roasted up a big tray of vegetables for dinner and not much of it was eaten, so I thought, why not make a soup out of the leftovers. Well, here’s how it went. (This can be made either in a pressure cooker or stove top).
- 3 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 small head cauliflower
- 1 bunch broccoli flowerettes
- 3 parsnips
- 4 carrots
- 1 large onion
- 4 cups broth vegetable, beef, or chicken your choice
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1 tsp ground ginger
Into a large bowl, cut up the vegetables for roasting. Drizzle with avocado oil.
Place into a large roasting pan and bake at 350F for about 30 minutes, stirring once about half way through roasting time.
Remove vegetables from oven and place into the inside pot of your pressure cooker.
Add broth, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, ground ginger and rosemary. Stir to combine.
Place lid on pressure cooker, set high pressure for 12 minutes, and press start (if required).
When done, use slow release for 20 minutes, then quick release until all steam is gone before removing lid.
Using an immersion blender (if you have one), process the vegetable soup until nice and creamy*. If you don’t have an immersion blender, use your regular blender to blend up the soup. Be careful, as it will be very hot. Do in batches if necessary.
Add extra salt and pepper (if using) to taste.
If you find the soup is too thick once blended, add your preferred broth in one cup increments until you reach your desired thickness.
You can use any combination of vegetables you like to make this soup. Try different ones to get a different flavour.
I also have served this with a tablespoon of sour cream (AIP) - adds a nice flavour.
If you don’t have a pressure cooker and still want to try this soup, follow the instructions 1 through 4, up to putting the vegetables in the inner pot of the pressure cooker. Instead, place the cooked vegetables in a soup pot with the rest of the ingredients as indicated above. Bring to a boil and cook on medium heat for about an hour (at which time everything should have cooked together enough). Finish the soup as indicated in the recipe above (steps 7 and 8). Enjoy!
