Don’t be scared by the name! It's just a way to use up all your veggies before they go bad in the fridge! This is one of the easiest and most delicious soups you will ever make. It is incredibly versatile and you can mix and match starches and veggies and it always turns out great. This is a go-to recipe in our home that always gets devoured!  

Optional Ingredients: (just pick whatever you have in your fridge) 
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 large carrots
A starch: 4 potatoes or 1 cup of rice
Any type of beans if you have them
Any other veggies in your fridge (mushrooms work great too)


Non-optional ingredients:
4-6 cups vegetable broth*
1/2 cup of cashews OR a can of coconut milk
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
Frozen corn/frozen peas, if desired to cool the soup down at the end
sliced green onions and cilantro, if desired
salt and pepper to taste


Instructions
Chop all your veggies and place in the pressure cooker. Save the cashews/coconut milk and frozen corn/peas for the end after it is cooked. 
Add the broth and 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning.

If you don't have a high speed blender, start soaking your cashews in hot water. (if you are not using coconut milk)

Pressure Cooker
Set the valve to sealing position and set it to high pressure for 18 minutes. Do a quick or natural release for 30 minutes, which allows for enhanced flavor.
Stovetop
Sauté the onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic together in a large pot. Add a splash of water if needed.
Add the remaining ingredients (except the cashews/coconut milk and frozen corn/peas) and bring to a simmer. Cover, and let simmer for 30 minutes.

Once the soup is done cooking, if you are using a can of coconut milk, pour that in. Otherwise, take 1 cup of veggie broth from the soup and blend it with 1/2 cup of cashews in your blender. (if you don't have a high speed blender, make sure you soak the cashews beforehand.) Blend in that mixture in for a delicious creamy soup. Then add about 1/2 cup of frozen peas and 1/2-1 cup of frozen corn to the soup to cool it down. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired. 


*Serve with sliced green onion, or cilantro on top if desired.

*Don’t forget to preload on vegetables before you eat!
