Instant Pot Minestrone Soup Taste Test Tuesday features a traditional Minestrone soup! Just 160 calories/5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints per serving!

I’m looking forward to doing a Taste Test Tuesday series of recipes that I’ve been anxious to try from cookbooks, magazines, Pinterest, etc. So, to kick this off, I chose this Minestrone Soup from Bob Warden’s ‘Great Food Fast’ book of pressure cooker recipes. I made it in my Instant Pot, it’s a multi-cooker: a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot all in one. This recipe worked beautifully using it! I honestly could have soup of any kind every day, all months of the year! I tweaked the recipe slightly using kale instead of spinach and elbow instead of shell pasta, because that what I had on hand. You’ll love that one serving is only 160 calories and 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints!

It’s hot here in Texas, the ‘feels like’ temperature was 101 today, but, thanks to my slow cooker, the house is cool and Cherry Blossom Kitchen smells amazing! I usually only use a crock pot during the cooler months, but, what was I thinking? This is the perfect time…my oven is off and my kitchen is cool! Check out this low-carb, gluten free Tuscan Zucchini Pasta with Parmesan, one-pot meal!

It’s so great to have my fingers back in the blog, posting a recipe again! It’s been a while and I’ve missed being here!! I have a Real Estate photography business that is hopping this time of year, but, thankfully, I’ve got some help now, so, I’m excited to be able to carve out time to post more regularly!

So, you’d think a hot, steamy burrito bowl (on a plate) would sound crazy to have in south Texas when it’s 96 degrees, but, really…it’s never too hot to have a savory bowl of this deliciousness!
