For extra richness, I have added heavy cream and parmesan cheese. You can pretty much adjust the amount of Cheese for low calorie and healthier version.

I have made this soup in my Instant Pot to speed up the process but you can easily make it on the stovetop. I am going to share both the versions below in the recipe. In either way, you can serve this delicious Creamy Vegetable Soup for dinner in under 30 minutes.

This Soup is a great way to include veggies in your meal. Especially for kids, who is a fussy eater. They can’t tell no to the creamy delicious broth. I would top it with little more cheese while giving it to the kids and lure them to it 😉

  1. If I double this recipe do I have to add cooking time in the instant pot too or just keep it the same?

    1. Subhasmita says:

      Hi Heather. The timer in Instantpot starts once it comes to full pressure. With double the recipe measurements, it will take longer to come to full pressure, but the timer need not change. No changes in cooking time are to be set in the Instant pot. Make sure to use a 6-quartz or bigger capacity.

        Hi,
        You were going to put instructions for cooking this soup on the stove top. I don’t have an instant pot. Thank you.

    This is the most amazing tasting vegetable soup. Everytime I make this the whole family raves about it!!

  3. Christina says:

    Can I use finely grated parmesan?

  4. This recipe is slightly confusing. Nowhere in the ingredients does it mention “bell pepper” but number 3 of the directions tells you to add Bell pepper. Celery is mentioned in the ingredients, but not in the directions. Also, how should the carrot be prepared? Chopped? Diced? Sliced? That would be helpful. I am making this now so I have no comments on taste.

    Nice recipe. I used my own homemade veggie stock…using what else my “Instant Pot!!!!” (how did I ever live without this gadget?!!) I adapted your lovely recipe to what I had in my cupboard. Broccoli instead of Cauliflower. Corn instead of Peas. And I changed up my spice profile because of the semi-soft Cheese I had on hand. I know Italian Spices would have been perfect as well. But I added Herbs de Provence and just a bit more Thyme. Bay Leaf and a smidgeon of Nutmeg. Thank you for this recipe. I really didn’t want to “cream” my soup using a blender. But finding a recipe that didn’t consist of blending was a bit difficult. I wanted to see bright colors in my bowl – not a generic mush of color. Not that I don’t like that sometimes…but your recipe got me the color and the texture I was looking for. I also undercooked by 4 minutes and did a natural release after 8 minutes because I decided to freeze most of this recipe. I make portions I can just pull out of the freezer. But taking it from freezer to microwave can be hard on the the veggies. I usually microwave each portion for about 8 minutes to ten minutes. The veggies hold up a bit better for that longer microwave time if they are just a teeny bit undercooked.. But your wonderful recipe works perfectly just as is if you want a wonderful flavorful meal as pretty as a garden bouquet of veggies! Nom, nom!! Thank you.
