This is an updated recipe for what my 8 year old fondly calls Miracle Soup. The change here is my new electric pressure cooker. It is a six in one appliance. If you have read past post, then you know that I have been using my rice cooker for all sorts of cooking. Now my pressure cooker takes the place and does the job all the better. Plus it is much quicker! My cooker is this one:
- 8 cups of water
- 2-3 chicken breast (cut into bite size pieces)
- 1 large carrot (about one cup)
- 1 cup slivered cabbage
- 2 sticks of celery cut into small pieces
- 1 small onion (slivered or rough chopped)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 teaspoons of cilantro
- 1 cup uncooked rice
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Just throw everything together in the pressure cooker. Close the lid and choose the soup setting. Once the pressure cooker beeps, carefully release the steam and enjoy!!! It tastes like it has simmered for a couple hours.
We love this soup and it is so forgiving. You could add dried white beans, leave out some veggies and add others. The picture shows it when I added parsnips. Hope you enjoy during this cold and flu time!
