Instant Pot Weight Loss Soup ready to kick start your healthy eating plan.

But today, we decided that it would be much easier, and it would get done much quicker, if we used our 6 quart Instant Pot instead.

Although we love to make our Instant Pot Vegetable Beef Soup, it’s now that time of the year where we all are trying to shed a few unwanted pounds. And there is no better way to do so than by eating healthy.

However this Instant Pot Weight Loss Soup is not only healthy, it actually is a detox soup as well.

sliced cabbage
We find it easier to slice the cabbage in half and then slice it into thin strips.

It will help jumpstart your weight loss plan by removing toxins so your body can heal and work as it was intended.

Simply replace one meal a day with this soup and your body will thank you!

How to Make Instant Pot Weight Loss Soup

And it couldn’t be easier to make this soup than by using your pressure cooker!

sliced vegetables
Add the sliced veggies to the liner of the Instant Pot.

The most time consuming part is to prepare the vegetables. And even that doesn’t take long.

First cut your onion and cabbage into thin strips. Then dice your celery and slice your carrots into thin rounds.

Use a garlic press to add minced garlic. It not only adds fresh flavor, it is also great for your heart.

Add all of the ingredients in the liner of the Instant Pot and you are ready for it to cook.

Pressure cook on HIGH pressure for 15 minutes. Just like any pressure cooker meal, it will take additional time for the pot to come to pressure.

lemon juice
Adding apple cider vinegar and fresh lemon juice will make your Instant Pot Weight Loss soup taste delicious.

Then, once the cook time is up, slowly release the pressure by moving the valve to venting. You will want to do this slowly so that that liquid does not spew out of the top of the valve.

Then all that is left to do is serve! And just in case you have any leftovers or are looking for meal prep ideas, this Instant Pot Weight Loss soup freezes well.

Just like with any Instant Pot recipe that uses tomatoes, it is best to keep them on top of the other ingredients, rather than stirring them in.
