I have been really thankful for my Instant Pot lately.
Although Minnesota winters are always pretty cold, these past few days have been brutal. With windchills nearly reaching -40 degrees F –yes, MINUS 40 degrees–we haven’t got out of the house much.
Being stuck in the house with a “threenager” is no joke. Arjun has so much energy that after tending to him I barely have time to make myself a cup of coffee, let alone cook. It’s ridiculous.
We could go to the mall or the (very few!) indoor toddler/preschool activities around town, and we probably should. It’s just so hard with two little kids, especially when it’s cold/flu season…
So instead of making the trek to the grocery store, I’ve resolved to using up some of the foods I have in our freezer or pantry. We’ve been enjoying a lot of soups lately, and this recipe has definitely been a favorite!
Piyush said that it reminded him of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana soup. I suppose it is sort of a copy-cat recipe, but having never ordered the Zuppa Toscana I can’t be sure how close it is.
Give it a go, and let me know what you think! Get the recipe by clicking below:
