- 1 cup water
- 1 cup non dairy milk such as coconut milk almond milk or cashew milk
- 2 cups Spinach
- freshly ground black pepper for garnish , lemon juice (optional)
Add broth in the Instant Pot on saute. Add onion and garlic cook until golden. Deglaze with a tbsp of water in between if needed. (See Stove top Saucepan instructions in Recipe note section below. )
Add the chopped tomato and mix. Add the spices and herbs and mix in.
Add veggies, chickpeas, salt, non dairy milk ** and water and mix.
Pressure cook for (manual, hi) 5 minutes, let the pressure release naturally.
Fold in spinach and saute for a minute. Add thick cashew cream for creamier soup and mix in. Add black pepper and lemon juice. Taste and adjust salt and flavor. Serve with crackers, garlic rolls or garlic bread.
Variations: Use other cooked beans or lentils of choice. If using kale, add it with the potatoes. If using red lentils, use 1/3 cup dried.
Saucepan: Follow steps 1 to 3 in a saucepan over medium heat. Add 1.5 cups of water instead of 1 cup. Partially over and cook for 12 to 15 mins or until potatoes are tender. Add in the spinach and continue to simmer for 2 mins.
**Note: Certain non dairy milks or brands tend to separate under pressure, so use all water or broth and add some cashew cream in the end or blend up a portion of the soup to make a creamy thick soup.
Or mix in 2 tsp flour into the milk and then add to the instant pot.
