If you need dinner in a hurry you can have this Tuscan Bean Soup on your table within minutes. Best of all it tastes like you cooked it all day!

This instant pot bean soup vegetarian recipe contains fiber, vitamin C, and folate. You and your family will love it. I enjoy serving a smaller portion alongside a crisp side salad or a big bowl topped with vegan parmesan cheese and a slice of crusty bread or dairy free cornbread.

Before I lost 125 pounds I would get soup from the deli at my local grocery store. Now that I read labels I realize it was loaded with sodium and MSG. Since I’ve lost weight I pay attention to what I eat and decided to create this delicious soup and I know you will love it. I think you will also love this vegan ginger carrot soup.

  • 1 potato, chopped optional
  • 1/2 cup penne pasta optional

Instructions for making this instant pot bean soup vegetarian recipe

  • Press the Saute button on the instant pot pressure cooker for 3 minutes. Add olive oil and chopped onion and saute, continuously stirring.
  • After 2 minutes, add garlic, and the Italian seasoning – basil, parsley, oregano and continue to stir.
  • After 3 minutes, the pressure cooker will “keep warm”. Add the rest of the ingredients except for salt, pepper, and kale.
  • Securely lock the instant pot lid, press “Pressure Cook” and cook for 5 minutes.
  • After cooking, perform a “quick release” by turning the pressure valve to release the pressure. Be careful and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Stir in the kale, salt, and black pepper when the electric pressure cooker allows you to remove the lid. Let the kale soften for 5 minutes and serve.

Pro Tips – This recipe is written for a 3 quart Instant Pot. You can adjust it according to the size of your pressure cooker.  Be sure you don’t overfill your instant pot or it will not be able to pressurize. Be patient, the more food you have in your Instant Pot the longer it will take to pressurize.

If you choose to use dried beans check out this recipe and you can make several servings for the entire week. It is so cost and time saving!

I like to add either a potato or pasta, but not both, just to make it even more weight loss friendly.  The nutrition listed on the recipe is based on adding pasta.

Storage SuggestionsCan you freeze bean soup?

Save yourself some time, make extra soup, and freeze it for a future plant-based protein-packed meal. Freezing bean soup is a great way to meal prep and preserve it for later use. Here’s how to freeze bean soup for best results:

  1. Cool the Soup: Allow the bean soup to cool to room temperature before freezing. Hot or warm soup can create condensation in the container, leading to freezer burn.
  2. Choose Freezer-Safe Containers: Use an airtight container or resealable plastic freezer bag for storing the soup. 
  3. Portion the Soup: Consider portioning the soup into individual serving sizes before freezing. This makes it easier to thaw and reheat only what you need.
  4. Leave Room for Expansion: If using containers, leave some space at the top of the container because liquids expand as they freeze.
  5. Label and Date: Before placing the soup in the freezer, label the containers or bags with the contents and the date it was made. 
  6. Remove Air: If using plastic bags, remove as much air as possible before sealing. This helps prevent freezer burn.
  7. Freeze Flat: If using plastic bags, lay them flat on a baking sheet or tray to freeze. Once frozen, they can be stacked to save space in the freezer.
  8. Thawing and Reheating: When ready to use, thaw this instant pot bean soup vegetarian recipe in the refrigerator overnight. Alternatively, you can thaw it in the microwave using the defrost setting. Once thawed, reheat the soup on the stove top or in the microwave until it reaches the desired temperature.

By following these steps, you can properly freeze bean soup to maintain its flavor and texture for a few months.

Pro Tip: 

If you do freeze it, I recommend not adding potato or pasta. You can always add those items when you reheat and serve. Check out the tips below for serving information.
