If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on quite the soup kick lately. I think a lot of it has attributed to the fact it is pretty cold to San Francisco standards these days. Another factor may be that as a career woman, it has been incredibly hard to find time to cook elaborate meals regularly, so I’ve been looking for simple, healthy, and quick recipes that can fill me up for dinner, and I can take with me the next day to work.
Once again, I located this amazing recipe in Bob Warden’s cookbook- Great Food Fast (Best of the Best Presents) Bob Warden’s Ultimate Pressure Cooker Recipes and used my favorite kitchen weapon- the Breville Fast Slow Pro Pressure and Slow Cooker which I talk a little about here. Understanding that a lot of folks do not own a pressure cooker (which essentially does the same thing to food that a slower cooker does, but in significantly less time), I also included a version of the recipe to make this soup in a slow cooker to set and forget while at work.
