  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
  • 4 celery stalks, sliced thinly
  • 1 leek, sliced thinly
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 whole black peppercorns
  • salt to taste
  • water to cover
  • 2 cups chopped spinach


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Put the broccoli, celery, leek, zucchini, peas, peppercorns, and salt into a pressure cooker. Pour vegetable broth over the vegetables; add water as needed to cover vegetables completely in liquid.
  2. Seal the pressure cooker and pressure-cook on High for 4 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes before doing a quick release.
  3. Stir spinach into the soup and wait until tender to serve.

This green minestrone is incredible! Leeks are so underrated! They're so flavorful when prepared properly. I love everything about this healthy soup and can't wait to make it again.

I am really into my pressure cooker now that I realized how fast everything comes out! I subbed green peas for edamame and added in spinach.
