With the cold weather moving in I crave soup! Can you relate?
It’s such a comfort food that also brings incredible flu-fighting antioxidants….something we really need this time of year! But sometimes life is so busy that it is hard to find time to make soup. I am so thankful that, even though my schedule is busier that ever, I can now make soup very quickly! Want to know my secret???
The Hamilton Beach Multi-Function Pressure Cooker! This amazing “new to me” appliance can take large pieces of carrots, potatoes, onions, and more and cook everything perfectly in less than 30 minutes. Then, all I have to do is blend it and serve it! I am in awe every batch I make! I have also loved using this incredible small appliance for pulled chicken, bean stews, hard-boiled eggs, and more! I will be sure to share more recipes throughout the fall and winter. For today I thought I would share one of my favourite soup recipes with you.
