Are you pulling your hair out to prepare a meatless meal that the entire family will love? This Instant Pot Minestrone Soup is here to the rescue; it's hearty, tasty, and good for you. The cannellini and red kidney beans add tons of plant-based protein, while the vegetables provide antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, including beta-carotene, lycopene, and vitamin C. Moreover, this soup takes 11 minutes to cook in the Instant Pot, making it great for busy weeknights. And it tastes even better the next day. Serve with freshly baked bread rolls or Vegan Garlic Bread.

What goes with minestrone soup?

Minestrone goes well with garlic bread, dinner rolls, Bruschetta, pizza/calzone, mozzarella sticks, and Caesar Salad. Yum!

Does minestrone soup contain meat?

Minestrone often contains no meat, though some versions have meat. Our version contains no meat.

Is minestrone good for weight loss?

Yes, it's good for weight loss. That's because beans and vegetables are fiber-rich, which keeps you full. Beans also contain protein, which fills you up. Lastly, minestrone has a high water content, making you even fuller. Minestrone soup also tends to be low in calories. One serving of our Minestrone soup contains just 250 calories.

Why is minestrone soup good for you?

Minestrone soup is good for you because it contains fiber and protein that promote gut health and build muscle. One serving of our minestrone soup provides almost half of your daily fiber needs. And it contains 11 grams of plant-based protein, which is about the same as the amount of protein in 2 large hard-boiled eggs! Meanwhile, vegetables provide vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, including beta-carotene, lycopene, and vitamin C.
