6cupsvegetable brothor 6 teaspoons vegetable Better Than Bouillon + 6 cups water
1 ½cupsfrozen chopped green beans
4-5cupsthinly sliced green cabbagehalf a large head, about 15 oz
14.5ouncecan petite diced tomatoes
1teaspoonwhite wine vinegar
Kosher salt and ground black pepperto taste after cooking
Optional garnish: chopped fresh parsley
Turn on the Sauté function on the Instant Pot. Heat the olive oil, then add the carrot, celery and onion. Sauté until the onion is starting to soften, about 3-5 minutes. Turn off the Sauté function, then add the minced garlic and sauté it in the residual heat for about a minute.
If any food has stuck to the bottom of the pot, add a bit of the broth and use a flat-bottomed spatula to scrape it up (this is called deglazing).
Pour in the remaining broth, then add the Italian seasoning and frozen green beans. Layer the sliced cabbage evenly on top, then add the tomatoes on top of the cabbage. Do not stir.
Close the lid and set the vent to sealing. Pressure cook on Manual High pressure for 15 minutes (your Instant Pot may have a "Pressure Cook" button rather than a "Manual" button, depending on the model). It will take about 25 minutes to come to pressure.
At the end of cooking time, allow the pressure to release naturally (NPR) for 10 minutes, then quick release the remaining pressure.
Give the soup a stir, add the white wine vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve garnished with chopped fresh parsley, if desired. Store any leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator and eat within 4 days. Can be frozen for up to 3 months.
