So I have teamed up with the amazing folks over at Instant Pot so you can all win your very own programmable pressure cooker!

That means, I’m sharing 3 new Instant Pot recipes this week on Monday (today), Wednesday and Friday, and I am also giving away 3 brand new Duo 60 7-in-1 (6 Quart) Instant Pots ($99.95 USD).

This has 7 kitchen appliances in 1, including a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker and warmer.

Not to mention, there are also 14 smart programs right at your fingertips – soup/broth, meat/stew, bean/chili, poultry, sauté/simmer, rice, multigrain, porridge, steam, slow cook, keep warm, yogurt, manual, and pressure cook.

And remember – you have three separate chances to win this – Monday (today), Wednesday and Friday, with my favorite Instant Pot recipes so make sure you come back for your new recipe + IP giveaway!

So to kick off this giveaway week, I am sharing a classic minestrone soup. You’ll be shocked to see how quickly this comes together in the IP. And don’t worry – this recipe is absolutely fool-proof so if you need a starter IP recipe, this is it.

The soup comes out amazingly hearty, chunky and loaded with so many veggies. But the real secret ingredient here is the Parmesan rind! That and the crusty bread you’ll serve with this.
