Thanks to Martha Stewart, one-pot pasta recipes abound on the interwebs. Pasta Fagioli with Cranberry Beans and Kale. Since the weather got cooler, I’ve been making a lot more soups and stews.
And since I’ve been test-driving a new Instant Pot (more about that in an upcoming post), I’ve been pressure cooking a lot of dried beans. So it was only natural to use my new gadget to make a soup/stew starting with dried beans. But don’t worry–you don’t have to have a pressure cooker to make this thick, Italian-inspired soup because I’ll tell you how to make it in either a pressure cooker or in a regular pot on the stove.

Confession: on some nights, I get lazy on the way back in the train and drag TH to have dinner outside. On those nights, I come back, drain the soaked chickpeas and stick it in the fridge. It can be stored like that for a week until you are ready to make what you want with it. Go ahead, I promise the chickpeas won’t feel bad or anything.

Healthy Girl's Kitchen: Looking for Recipes for Your Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker? Or Some Confidence With It? Plus Another Fantastic Giveaway!
As I write this blog posting, I've got a pot of Chef Aj's Split Pea Soup with Sweet Potatoes cooking in my electric pressure cooker.
It's an Instant Pot that I received as a gift from the company right before Chef Aj came to visit. Aj knew she would need an Instant Pot for the demo that she was performing in my kitchen and the Instant Pot company was more than happy to send me a complimentary one. Now that said, I would not promote a product that I do not fully believe in, just because I received one for free. I only have the time and energy to tell you guys about the good stuff! So it seems that quite a few HGK readers have purchased an Instant Pot since Aj's visit and my blog postings about the Instant Pot a few months ago. I also discovered (with the help of Healthy Girl's Kitchen's Facebook fans) that Instant Pot has a series of help videos on their website. Better yet, here's a fan-freakin-tastic recipe for Chef Aj's Red Lentil Chili that you can make this week in your Instant Pot.
