Pressure cookers like the Instant Pot gets lots of attention for the magic they create with tough cuts of meat, rendering them deliciously fall-apart tender.

But that magic doesn’t end with keeping carnivores happy!

The same principles that make a great beef stew can be applied to create an amazing vegan soup, too. Hey there, you tough and impenetrable butternut squash … meet my new friend, Instant Pot …

Plus, the technique of pressure cooking not only makes tough things tender, but also creates deep, long-simmered flavors in very little time, so it’s a perfect technique for making soup. No need to keep a pot burbling slowly away on the stove all day. (Because exactly how many days do you have when you can allow that leisurely process to happen?!?) Nope! Soup’s ready and dinner’s on the table in no time … thank you, Instant Pot friend!

As it happens, most of these vegetable soups are vegetarian, and most are actually even vegan soup recipes, but we’ve tried to note for you a few places where you might have to swap ingredients if you’re trying to keep things strictly vegan or vegetarian.
