Servings 8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 medium ears fresh corn kernels removed or 2 ¼ cups frozen corn
  • 2 lbs. about 6 medium tomatoes peeled and chopped (or about 28 ounces diced tomatoes, NOT drained)
  • 1 sweet bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 2 medium zucchini diced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen lima beans
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small eggplant peeled and diced
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt plus more, to taste


  • Press “sauté” button on the pressure cooker. Add olive oil to the stainless steel insert. Wait 2 minutes for it to preheat.
  • Add onion and garlic to the oil. Saute, stirring frequently, just until onion is tender (about 5 minutes).
  • Press "off/stop" button.
  • Add remaining ingredients to pot.
  • Place lid on the pressure cooker and make sure the valve is set to "sealing".
  • Press "soup" setting and timer to 12 minutes.
  • The Pressure cooker will beep and start cooking. It may take about 20 minutes for it to come to pressure before the timer starts.
  • When the cooking is done, allow the pressure to naturally release for about 5 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure by carefully switching the valve to "venting".
  • Carefully remove the lid, away from your face, and set aside.
  • Stir the soup. Let cool slightly before serving.
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
