Instant Pot Recipes for Winter

We’ll be well into winter by the end of this month, so I’ve included recipes that are sure to warm your heart and feed your soul on these cold wintery days. And what’s more soul-soothing than a bowl of piping hot soup? Just holding the warm bowl in the palms of your hands is enough to suck the frigid cold from your bones. And the aromas can calm the most frayed of nerves.

You cannot miss my Tomato Soup, it’s phenomenal. The addition of basil with just a kiss of honey is like magic in a soup bowl. And make a batch of my Crusty Garlic Bread to dip into it. This has to be one of the best winter meals.

There are so many more easy Instant Pot soup recipes in these meal plans. You’ll find recipes for Chicken and Dumplings, Butternut Squash Soup, Chicken Soup, and much more.
