Wholesome Veggie Pasta Soup


  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 28 ounce kidney beans

  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Press the "Sauté" button; add celery, carrot, onion, bell pepper, dried parsley, bay leaf and 1/4 cup vegetable broth.
  • Sauté vegetables in broth until onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. If the inner pot becomes dry before onion is tender, add 2 tablespoons broth to prevent vegetables from sticking.

  • Continue to simmer soup until pasta is tender to the bite, 10 to 15 minutes, depending on pasta type.
  • Remove bay leaf. Press "Keep Warm/Cancel" twice to activate keep warm mode.
