  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1-inch-thick half-moons
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups green beans, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1½ cups small shaped pasta
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker set to Sauté. Cook and stir onion, zucchini, carrots, celery, and garlic in hot oil until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir basil, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper into the vegetable mixture; add vegetable broth, green beans, tomatoes, chickpeas, vegetable broth, and pasta. Season soup with salt and pepper; stir.
  3. Seal pressure cooker lid into place, turn steam-vent handle to Sealing, and cook on High Pressure for 6 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before turning steam-vent handle to Venting to quick-release remaining pressure.
Mealthy tip:

Prepare this recipe with gluten-free pasta if you need to eliminate grain from your diet. No matter what, it is a quick and easy one pot meal everyone will love!

Loved this minestrone. Instead of traditional pasta I used Veggie Rotini.

Made this with whole wheat pasta and added some broccoli and cauliflower from my fridge I didn't want to throw out. This is a really quick recipe, it's perfect for those cold weather days.

Made this with brown rice pasta and pretty much all the leftover veggies in my fridge. Really can’t go wrong with that method.

Delicious, classic minestrone recipe. I give my boys extra carrots and zucchini, it's really the only time I can get them to eat vegetables without complaint. This is one of our weeknight favorites because of how easy it is.

This minestrone was so good. It reminded me of this soup my grandmother used to make when I was a kid. I hadn't had minestrone in forever so this was nice. I've made this recipe twice already, the second time with orzo. Both work great in this dish.
