  • large onion chopped
  • bunch celery sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp each basil, oregano, celery seed, smoked paprika

  • (To pack in even more veggies, add 4 finely chopped Roma tomatoes and a bag of dried mushrooms. Increase each of the spices (except the bay leaf) by ½ tsp.)
  1. Add all ingredients to an electric pressure cooker, like the Instant Pot*.
  2. Add water to the maximum level and bring to pressure for 6-7 minutes with a natural release.
  3. Ladle the soup over raw greens, like kale, collards, or spinach. The heat of the soup cooks the greens to perfection!
