  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion or 1 small onion
  • 3 large garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 rope kielbasa sliced, then sliced into half circles
  • 4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes cut into thick chunks
  • 1 cup carrots sliced thick, about 2 large
  • 2 celery stalks sliced thick
  • 1 small cabbage cored and cut
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes undrained
  • 32 ounces low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Hit SAUTE on the pressure cooker, and when it reads Hot, add the olive oil, chopped onions, garlic and kielbasa, and cook, stirring frequently, until sausage is lightly browned and onions are slightly soft
  • Hit CANCEL, deglaze pot with some of the broth, if necessary, and add the remaining ingredients to the pot. Pot will be full, but liquids should be below the fill line, so it's okay.
  • Place lid on pressure cooker, make sure vent is at Sealing position, and hit PRESSURE COOK for 4 minutes
  • Pot will take a few minutes to reach pressure (time will vary with different models) then begin counting down and start cooking
  • When pot beeps, allow a 5 minute natural release, then quick release remaining pressure
  • When pin drops, carefully remove lid, stir soup well, and serve


Recipe is for 6 quart or larger pressure cookers.
For easier prep, use thick baby carrots.
Make sure not to cut vegetables too thin if you want them firmer. Can do a quick release for even firmer veggies.
For lower carb soup, replace potatoes with cauliflower or radishes.
