Food in a flash with your pressure cooker - Vegetable Soup

A pressure cooker helps make cooking fast and simple. Using ingredients straight from the pantry, you can serve your family enjoyable and healthy meals. Enjoy a soup that cooks in minutes. Get creative and use any combo of vegetables you or your kids prefer, whatever is in season or what you have on hand. Pasta helps thicken the soup or add a can of kidney or white beans. With very little preparation, this one pot meal is ideal for a busy weekday family dinner.
