Another Reason To Love My Instant Pot!

Another reason to love my Instant Pot! Ken is making repeated trips out to check the greenhouse in the storm. I wanted something nourishing for him when he needed to warm up and dry off. I put 2 quarts of tomato juice in the IP together with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder and a bay leaf. Added half a diced onion, 3 or 4 handfuls of pasta shells and some diced celery. Manual/high pressure for 6 minutes with a controlled quick release. Stirred in some diced bacon and black beans that I had pre-cooked. I left the pot on it’s ‘keep warm’ cycle. Now as long as we have power (and we pray it stays on) he has a bowl of hot soup waiting for him. Stay safe and warm everyone!
