Instant Pot Vegetable Soup with a Super Mineral Broth

Watch the Instant Pot Super Mineral Broth Vegetable Soup video

Learn How to Make Instant Pot Vegetable Soup. This recipe is not just any old vegetable soup! This is a Super Mineral Broth Vegetable Soup—a perfect respite for January (or anytime) when you need to recover from a period of holiday overeating!

Instant Pot Soup

The Instant Pot is great for making soups because it’s well suited for those “fix it and forget it” type meals that are similar to those recipes made in the slow cooker. The good news is that unlike the slow cooker, soups made in the Instant Pot come together very quickly, making this an excellent option for a weeknight supper. Or anytime you’re short on time!

Super Mineral Broth to the Rescue!

What makes this vegetable soup special are all the ingredients that are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties too! This broth is rich in onions, garlic, ginger, turmeric, and more. Plus, by adding bay leaves, we kick up the detox property of this soup. That’s a plus whenever we’ve been going through a season of overindulging!

Let’s Get Cooking

You can pull this soup together in no time with a little bit of chopping and dicing. And then, once the Instant Pot comes up to pressure, this soup only takes 15 minutes to cook! With the first sip, you’ll feel rejuvenated!

A number of years ago, I discovered Magic Mineral Broth in a cookbook entitled The Longevity Kitchen by Rebecca Katz.  I loved the idea of using actual vegetables in a broth to give my body the minerals it needed instead of turning to a bottle of vitamins.

My take on this broth is a bit different than the original recipe.  I like adding in ginger and turmeric.  And by all means—make this broth your own too by using the vegetables, herbs, and spices that you like best.  You can't make a mistake!


  • 6-Quart or 8-Quart Instant Pot


  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil, butter, or a combination optional: coconut oil
  • 1 Yellow onion, peeled and diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, peeled and minced
  • 3 Carrots, peeled and diced
  • 3 stalks Celery, diced
  • 1 Leek, chopped
  • 1 large Sweet potato, peeled and chopped into 1 – 1/2 inch pieces
  • 4 inch Fresh ginger, peeled (if not organic) and grated you can use more or less
  • 3 inch Fresh turmeric, peeled (if not organic) and grated you can use more or less
  • 1 teaspoon Sea salt herb sea salt or homemade bouillon
  • 2 cups Fresh green beans, sliced into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups, packed Fresh kale
  • 2 cups Crushed tomatoes or 1 pint home-canned tomatoes or one 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes.
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • Filtered water to cover
  • 1/2 bunch Flat-Leaf Italian parsley, chopped optional garnish
  • 1 Scallion (green onion), thinly sliced optional garnish


  • Add the olive oil or butter (or both) to the Instant Pot liner. Set the Instant Pot to Saute option to the Less level. Add the onion and saute for 1 minute. Add the garlic and saute for another minute.
  • Add all other ginger, turmeric, vegetables, tomatoes, and bay leaf ingredients, and stir.
  • Cover with water to the 1/2 way mark if using an 8-quart Instant Pot or up to the 2/3 mark if using a 6-quart Instant Pot.
  • Turn off the Saute option.
  • Put the lid on the Instant Pot and lock it into place.
  • Set the steam release knob on the lid to the Sealing position.
  • Set the Instant Pot to "Pressure Cook" or "Manual".
  • Set the pressure cook time to 15 minutes on high pressure.
  • When the pressure cooking is finished, do a "Quick Release" to vent the steam from the steam release knob by turning the knob to the Venting position. (Caution! The steam is very hot when it is released. In the video, I use a wooden spoon to turn the knob to keep a safe distance from the Instant Pot when releasing the steam. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines.)
  • Once the steam is released, and the pressure in the Instant Pot has returned to normal, open the lid. (Caution! Open the lid away from you so that the steam does not hit your face.)
  • Serve the soup, and if using, top the soup with chopped parsley and sliced green onions. Enjoy!



Do not discard the vegetables.  Remove the kombu, bay leaf, ginger, and turmeric, and process the remaining solids through a food mill to create a creamy mineral-rich soup.

  2. Chris says:

    Just reading down the list of ingredients, and half of these things I grow in my summer garden. I don’t can, but I’d like to start getting into it soon. Can this soup be canned? What will the shelf life be? Will it have the same nutritional benefit canned as opposed to fresh?

    1. Mary's Nest says:

      Hi Chris, Thanks so much for your comment. That is a great question. I have never canned this soup but I would think it could be pressure canned. I would check with the Nation Center for Home Food Preservation and see what the canning rules are for the various ingredients in this soup and then you will know the right pressure for your altitude and the correct amount of time that you will need to process the soup. You might also find the USDA book incredibly helpful. It’s under $10 and well worth its weight in gold: (affiliate link). Also, if you haven’t seen my canning playlist, you might find some of the videos really helpful – I start at the beginning and go over books, equipment, supplies, and then I show how to water bath can three different things – including tomatoes.
