I was sent a copy of the Electric Pressure Cooker Soup Cookbook by Karen Lee Young at no charge for my honest review. Admitedly I am still learning all of the ways I can use this appliance, like making an electric pressure cooker soup recipe. Rice is my jam with this appliance although I have discovered that instant pot salmon is easy and delicious.

My Opinion:

This book covers a wide variety of soup basics from making various stocks in your electric pressure cooker to then using those stocks in a variety of different soups both familiar and new. The instructions are easy to follow if you understand your electric pressure cooker. If you do not it’s a back and forth between the cookbook and your instruction book. Since I mostly make rice in mine you know where I fall.

The book is broken down into easy to navigate chapters with the first being a set up of what goes into the soup and each ingredient’s purpose. From there you will find broths and stocks, vegetable soups, grains and beans, poultry, hearty meat soups and stews, and finally seafood soups. There is a section for measurment conversions and then the index.

Obviously the beauty of this book is the ease of letting the appliance do the work and the speed at which it does it. While I have only had the opportunity to try one recipe, that one developed lovely flavor in the short cooking time. I am looking forward to trying more, especially as we head in to soup season.

How Was the Electric Pressure Cooker Soup Recipe?

This was very easy to make and it came together quite quickly. I had stock canned so I used that. There is a recipe in the book for making your own chicken broth. I also was not in the mood for rice so I substituted Israeli couscous and it worked just fine. It made a rich and flavorful broth with a light lemon flavor. When I make it again I will add more lemon to it to accomodate our personal tastes. If you want to make your chicken soup the old fashioned way you can follow my chicken soup from scratch recipe – it’s handed down from my Polish grandmother.
