  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Soup
  • Method: Instant Pot pressure cooker
  • Cuisine: Gluten-free


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 carrots, chopped 
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced 
  • 12 ounces cooked spicy Italian sausage, sliced into ¾-inch pieces
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 15-ounce cans of white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 lemon, juiced

  2. Cancel the Sauté function and pour in the broth. Add the beans and stir to combine. 
  3. Lock on the lid, select the Pressure Cook function, and adjust to high pressure for 6 minutes. Make sure the steam valve is set in the “Sealing” position.
  4. When the cooking time is up, let the pressure come down naturally for 5 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure.
  5. Remove the lid and use a hand-immersion blender to gently blend the soup so the beans and vegetables are still chunky.
  6. Stir in the lemon juice and serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.


You can use whatever type of sausage you like, but be sure you buy a pre-cooked version. Also, be cautious to buy a gluten-free version, if necessary.
