I love soup, I could eat it every day (like my Instant Pot Beef Stew, Hibachi Clear Soup, or Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup!). When I was a kid my mom would make huge batches of the absolute best soup in the summer with veggies from the garden. Since we’re all stuck at home right now, I thought it would be a good time to share my own delicious Vegetable Soup recipe with you all!
