Panera’s Ten Vegetable Soup
If you feel like you’re eating two $20’s every time you go to Panera, you’re not alone. I’m right there with you. I can’t make sense of the fact that I spend so much money and only get half of a sandwich and half of a bowl of soup. Except that I am paying for convenience, and I’ll do it if I’m out. I have a healthy obsession with the Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich and the 10 vegetable soup each and every time I stop by Panera, but there are two things that drove me to make the soup at home; the cost of eating Panera and the fact that I want all that goodness at home, when I’m not out eating for convenience. I came up with this Instant Pot Panera 10 Vegetable soup to share with you, so we can all eat our veggies and save a couple of $20’s in the process.
How To Make This 10 Vegetable Soup In Your Instant Pot Just Like Panera
Step #1: Chop all those beautiful veggies. This is a quick soup, but the chopping does takes a few minutes. I pinky promise the rest goes really fast.
Step #2: Measure out your barley, and get out the Instant Pot, you are about to have the yummiest, healthiest, soup of your life in 15 minutes.
Step #3: Mix everything together and throw it into the Instant Pot, this is truly a dump meal.
Step #4: Add the tomato paste, broth, herbs, and salt and stir it all up until the tomato paste is evenly mixed in.
Step #5: Close the lid and set it to “Manual”, for 15 minutes, making sure the toggle on top of the lid is pushed toward “sealing”.
Why did I substitute barley for the brown rice that is in the Panera version?
Barley has real nutrients, and a TON of fiber and just more overall micronutrients. Wait, did I say it tastes better too? It does. There’s this chewy thing going on that I want to eat all. day. long.
THIS SOUP GOES GREAT WITH:
- Pesto Braided Bread
- Panera Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich
- Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Bars
- Classic Summer Tomato Bruschetta
- Parmesan Arugula Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
