Simple Kielbasa Vegetable Soup: Only 5 Ingredients

In the winter, I crave soup all day, every day. New England winters are chilly and there’s nothing better than coming inside to a homemade soup.

But I also need to get it on the table fast. And on a typical weeknight? I don’t really feel like chopping a billion ingredients.

To get the best of both worlds (homemade taste with convenient ingredients), I developed this failproof kielbasa vegetable soup recipe. It uses only 5 ingredients, requires no seasoning, and only takes 5 minutes in the Instant Pot.

Don’t have an Instant Pot? No worries, you can make this comforting soup on the stovetop as well.

Like I mentioned before, this recipe only uses 5 inexpensive ingredients which makes this the perfect comfort food recipe when you’re on a budget. Even better? The kielbasa seasons the soup for you. No need to measure out additional spices. No under- or over-salting. Just yummy perfection every time.

Be sure to add the ingredients in the order listed in the recipe if you’re using the Instant Pot, otherwise, it may not come to pressure.

I’ve included instructions for cooking on the stovetop and in the crockpot as well, but I’ve found that the Instant Pot yields the best results!
