Cooking Tips

  • Save time and use frozen chopped onion.
  • Always garnish with fresh parsley, not dried. It tastes better and looks better too.
  • Measure the water correctly, don’t just guess. The pressure cooker needs all 8 cups of water to make this soup have the correct consistency.
  • Store leftover soup in a sealed container in the refrigerator. It will last up to 3 days in the fridge if properly sealed.
